The often humorous adventures of a roguish anti-hero of low social degree living by his wits in a corrupt society
2 Guns: Lotsa fun seeing Paxton trying to out-ham (very cute) screen couple Wahlberg & Washington Always great when everyone's having a lark
The Grandmaster: The awesome kung-fu is window dressing for what makes Wong Kar-wai great: Brooding. Beautiful. Romantic. Longing. Loved it!
You Know You're Too Old When: James #Blake retires. Saw him play. Big game nice guy Sad to see the complete decline of American #Tennis #ATP

Heartbreaking loss for #Pospisil. But what a great bl**dy win for young Victoria #Duval over hard-luck #Stosur. Inspiring. #WTA #USOpen
#Federer Endless Summer turns into The Long Goodbye. Hopefully he's inspired by the last #GOAT (#Sampras) was down http://t.co/WWBgU85Ipb
Umm, so the #Ashes series was a foregone conclusion but the matches were pretty exciting. Great Test #Cricket marred by idiot umps. #EngvAus
The World's End: Best You-Can't-Go-Home-Again-Here-Comes-The-Apocalypse Mash-Up, Ever! Did I detect an underlying bittersweet maturity?! :-)
It's #Grandmaster Day! Hopefully #WongKarWai's next cinematic masterpiece helps me get over the #Affleck-#Batman nightmare! @WeinsteinFilms
RIP Elmore Leonard. Literary giant. Discovered him way too late in my book reading life. Hopefully I'll have years to catch up.
#TheFall: The @netflix show you should be watching is the one not getting any hype! Best crime drama on, um TV?, by bl**dy far! Fantastic!
Elysium: Great ideas that don't quite coalesce in a good (not quite great) film. At least Blomkamp is on CNTT (Cameron Nolan Tenure Track).
#TheSmiths + #CharlieBrown = Greatest Future Hipster Musical, Ever! (via TBH) This Charming Charlie @OfficialPeanuts http://t.co/GuukZe0Cbo
You Know You're Too Old When: Marion #Bartoli retires. Crazy/fun/quirky...but a retirement at 28(?!) for a reigning Wimbledon champ?! Wha?!
You Know You're Too Old When: You're told by @NikePlus you've had your fastest run yet... after you're passed by a lady pushing a stroller.
The National (Hollywood Forever Cemetery): Best Concert, Ever! Intimate. Heart breaking. Perfect for a graveyard in Hollywood. Still reeling
Daughter (Hollywood Forever Cemetery): The YA version of Siouxsie-meets-The-xx shoegaze. Perfect for tweenage-graveyard navel-gazing. Lovely
2nd-Greatest Celeb Sighting, Ever! [tie]: Jim Carrey (The Cable Guy!) taking notes while watching the opening band for The National! Awesome
2nd- Greatest Celeb Sighting, Ever!: Zuleikha Robinson. The last time i saw The National in concert Matthew Fox (Jack Shepherd!) was there!
3rd-Greatest Celeb Sighting, Ever!: Olivia Wilde (13!) at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery being conspicuous in her elaborate inconspicuous.
Henceforth #Dufnering will mean Major Champion! Congrats to #Dufner who limped home to the #PGA championship. Sad for crusty vet #Furyk.
Only God Forgives: Umm, so, the thing is, when you think about it, well, what I'm trying to say...Great cinematography by Larry Smith! Whew!
The Wolverine: Awe-bl**dy-some! Best "summer" movie by far. Loved Jackman & all those butt-kicking babes! And, yes, they had ninjas! Ninjas!
Between the rediscovered #OrsonWelles film & #PGA championship looks like my old stomping grounds #Rochester is having a moment. Sweet!
#TheKilling: Despite the cool Seven-like ending someone needs to put it out of its misery. Thanks for introducing Kinnaman to the world.
Blue Jasmine: Madoff+Streetcar=Best Woody Since Match Point. Loved Hawkins, Cannavale, Dice Clay (?!) & Blanchett, tour-de-bl**dy-force! Wow
James Turrell - Perceptual Cell: To paraphrase the great Keanu Reeves: Woah! It's like the end of 2001 exploded behind your eyelids! Whew!
