The often humorous adventures of a roguish anti-hero of low social degree living by his wits in a corrupt society
RIP Bob Hoskins. Discovered him thru Roger Rabbit & Mermaids so imagine my surprise at Mona Lisa & Long Good Friday! Talk about versatility.
Stoker: Awesome, over-the-top, ludicrious, pitch-black craziness from the unhinged Chan-wook Park. Wasikowska is great & Goode is amazing!
It wasn't pretty but #LeBron & #Heat will take it. 3 more series to go! I'm now a huge #Raptors/#Hawks/#Mavericks/#Grizzlies/#Warriors fan!
RIP Dr. Jack Ramsay. Always loved listening to him broadcast NBA games.
Seriously, #NBA stop it! If the playoffs continue like that #Grizzlies-#Thunder game then my old heart is going to just give out! Whew!

Whew! That "small market" #Thunder-#Grizzlies game is the reason #NBA playoffs are insane! Neither team wanted to win/lose. It's only Gm 2!
The Raid 2: HMOG! Maybe not quite as good, but definitely longer, epic-er, awesome-er than the first! The prison yard, the chase, the...wow!
It wasn't pretty but #LeBron & #Heat can't get to 16 wins w/out getting the first one! Next 2 months are gonna be tough on my fragile psyche
Oh man, what a sad, deflating loss for #Federer (#GOAT?). Good to see #Wawrinka break through, but this had to hurt for ol' Rog. #ATP
Sad to see #Nole go out like that. Very excited for #Federer & #Wawrinka. Let's hope it's a different outcome than the last all-Swiss final!
Nice battling win for "old man" #Federer against the always fun/dangerous/mercurial #Tsonga (29 already?!). Up next: #Djokovic. Uh-oh. #ATP
Blue Caprice: Cool, calculating, chilling. Remarkable, if little short of substantive, debut from Moors. Washington & kid Richmond are great
RIP Gabriel Garcia Marquez. A true literary giant.
Let the Fire Burn: Incredible you-are-there (& I do mean there) documentary! Can't believe this could happen in America. One of 2013's best!
The Tallest Tree in the Forest: Stirring bio of the great Paul Robeson (sadly forgotten) Beaty's dazzling one-man perf is astounding! @CTGLA
Sure, I'm happy for #Bubba, but man, does my heart go out to #Spieth. Poor kid came so close. There's always the next 20 years! #Masters
Phoring: Bold if uneven debut featuring a complex look at adolescence in all its Bengali glory. Lovely cinematography & performances. @iffla
Bombay Talkies: Heartwarming cutesy omnibus captures the love of Bollywood Nice work, esp by Dibakar & (way) against type Karan Johar @iffla
RIP Sue Townsend. Man, all of us read and loved those Adrian Mole books growing up. Hopefully the next generation will too.
The Suit: Beautiful & devastating. Waited all my life to see a Peter Brook play, it was worth it! Incredible perfs, esp from @ivannojeremiah
Only Lovers Left Alive: Tone, atmosphere, deadpan humor; lovely Jarmusch world to sink into. Hiddleston & Swinton...perfect immortal couple!
Under the Skin: Inscrutable, disturbing, visually stunning...& the movie's not bad either ;) ScarJo will haunt your nightmares after this.
RIP Mickey Rooney. His career pretty much spanned the entire history of film. Not too many left from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Bad luck for #India & #Virat, but classy farewell innings from #Sangakkara propels #SriLanka to #WT20 win. Also...@ESPN showed it live!
Noah: The Original (Vegan/Eco) Action Hero! Aronofsky crafted a loony fascinating epic. Unsure what it all meant but boy was it spectacular!
At this point #Kohli has to be considered the best batsman in the world...on subcontinent pitches ;-) Nice knock by #Raina too. #India #WT20
Captain America - The Winter Soldier: Fan-bl**dy-tastic! What a way to get the summer movie season started. Unusually smart and somber Cool!
Finding Vivian Maier: Good effort to tell a truth-is-way-stranger-than-fiction story Maier herself remains fascinating if finally unknowable
You Know You're Too Old When: Vladimir Guerrero retires. Hopefully the BBWAA will get out of their own way & elect him to the HOF! #Vlad
