Federer Comeback Against Benneteau At Wimbledon

HMOG! #Roger #Federer comes from 0-2 down to fight past the deserving #Benneteau! It's nice to be reminded of his #GOAT status! #Wimbledon

Gangs Of Wasseypur

Gangs Of Wasseypur: An absolute masterclass in Leone-ishtyle Bollywood filmmaking! Hands down best 2012 film! PS. Good to see Bajpayee back!

Ferrari Ki Sawaari

Ferrari Ki Sawaari: Almost as good as one of those cute, sweet 70s Bollywood comedies. The DVD will be the #1 gift on Father's Day in India.

Hulk - Gray

Hulk - Gray: Interesting take on the fan fave from the Avengers film. Beautiful artwork from Tim Sale, nicely assisted by Richard Starkings.

Catchiest Summer Song That I Only Just Found Out About, Ever!: "Love Me" by @wearestandard http://t.co/m3yjKGkU

RIP Nora Ephron

RIP Nora Ephron. Her films, while being somewhat of a mixed bag, will be remembered. When Harry Met Sally is the 3rd best rom-com ever.

Federer Wins Wimbledon First Round

Happy: #Roger #Federer (#GOAT ...for now) won easily. Sad: They shunted him off Centre Court, #Isner & #Venus lost. #Wimbledon

Beach House - "Wild"

Dude! Beautiful shoe-gaze-ish-indie-dream-pop-awesomeness from @BeaccchHoussse. Check out "Wild" courtesy of @nprmusic http://t.co/6dL5DQIO

We Bought A Zoo

We Bought A Zoo: Sweet little film that gets caught in the middle of grown up-family territory. Cameron Crowe keeps the cutesiness at bay.

23 June 2012

The Dirty Picture

The Dirty Picture: Biopic about a trashy B-movie actress that itself is trashy B-movie fun. Vidya Balan shines in a tour-de-force star turn.

LeBron Helps the Heat Win NBA Title

Yes! #LeBron helps the #Heat beat the tough #Thunder in the #NBAFinals! This could be the beginning of a beautiful rivalry! #NBA @KingJames

RIP Andrew Sarris

RIP Andrew Sarris. Great film critic. One of the few remaining. With his passing we are nearing the end of a great era.

The Vow

The Vow: Look, I'm not saying I liked it, but any movie that uses "Pictures of You" by #TheCure for the sappy end is a-okay by me!

18 June 2012

Snow White And The Huntsman

Snow White And The Huntsman: Visually stunning (unintentionally) campy fun. I think Thor might be the greater of the Hemsworth brothers.

17 June 2012


#Girls: Cuz being the daughter of a famous artist/newsman/drummer/playwright in Brooklyn is so hard. Um, so why do I like it so much?! @HBO

Heat Beat Thunder NBA Finals Game 3

Manohmanohman. #LeBron & the #Heat escape against the never-say-die #Thunder! Say it with me now: Thank G*d for #Bosh! #NBA NBAFinals

Webb Simpson Wins US Open

Nice work by #WebbSimpson to come all the way back from 6 shots & win the #USOpen. Tough luck for battling #Furyk, #McDowell & #Els. #PGA

Center Theatre Group Re-Tweet

@PratikBasu Glad you liked the show! Thanks for coming to the Ahmanson.

War Horse

War Horse: Hate to admit this but it's better than the Spielberg film. Very cinematic staging. The horse puppets were simply amazing! @CTGLA

Dutch Crash Out Of Euro 2012

The once-elegant, still maddening #Oranje let #Portugal come back (#Ronaldo, of all people) and send them crashing out of #Euro2012. #Sigh

Federer Loses Halle Finals To Haas

On the one hand it's inexcusable for #Federer (#GOAT ?!) to lose #Halle finals. On the other it's great to see #Haas making a comeback! #ATP

Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom: How much do I love Wes Anderson? Let me count the ways! I'm a sucker for primo WA like this, even if it's a bit too much.

Federer Squeaks By Raonic At Halle

Ballistic #Raonic gives #Roger #Federer (#GOAT) another huge scare at #Halle! If only Fed could regain this self-belief vs #Rafa & #Nole :-)

LeBron Keeps the Heat Alive In Game 2

Wow! One second #LeBron almost lost the #NBAFinals for the #Heat. The next second he kept them alive with *clutch* free throws! #NBA

Belichick Steals Ballard From Giants

Classic #DarthVader move by #Belichick. #Patriots steal #Ballard from #Giants. Can't help but love/hate the guy! #NFL http://t.co/dAgKKXYh

Lone Wolf And Cub - Assassin's Road

Lone Wolf And Cub - Assassin's Road: It's not everyday you read a comic, sorry graphic novel, inspired by Edo paintings! Only 24 more to go!

Miami Lose Finals Game 1

Wow! #Thunder are an unstoppable force of nature! It's gonna be another long #NBAFinals for this sole #LeBron/#Heat fan in LA. #NBA #Sigh

LA Kings Win the Stanley Cup!

Nice! The #Kings complete their impossible run by winning the #StanleyCup! Will they allow bandwagon fans in the parade? ;-) #NHL #LAKings

Men In Black 3

Men In Black 3: Better than the negative hype. Brolin & Jemaine absolutely kill it. Man, I used to love Barry Sonnenfeld once upon a time!

Rafa Nadal Wins His 7th French Open

#Rafa wins #FrenchOpen to move past #Borg. #Nadal whining & gamesmanship means he wins without honor. Credit #Nole for fightback. #RG12

09 June 2012

Heat Beat the Celtics!

Yes! For one night it's good to be the only #LeBron / #Heat fan in LA! I toldja, thank G*d for #Bosh. As for the #Thunder...uh-oh! #NBA

Sharapova Wins French Open

#Sharapova wins #FrenchOpen & completes career #Slam. Credit her comeback despite fame+fortune. Credit poor over-matched #Errani too. #RG12

08 June 2012


Prometheus: So, it's not quite as great as it coulda been...but it's still pretty d*mn awesome! Salander, I mean Noomi Rapace, kicks a**!

Federer Loses to Djokovic at the French Open

The Big 3 are now the Big 2. Sad to see #Roger #Federer (#GOAT ...for now) go out like that. Credit #Nole for never giving up. #RG12 #TheEnd

Mirza-Bhupathi Win French Open Mixed Doubles

Nice work by #Sania #Mirza and Mahesh #Bhupathi to win the #FrenchOpen mixed doubles. Hope they can keep it up at the #Olympics. #RG12

Federer Comes Back From Two Sets To Love Down Against Del Porto!

We should all celebrate #Roger #Federer (#GOAT) come-from-way-behind win vs #DelPo! If it was Rog's last stand...what a way to go out! #RG12

Sugar Shane Mosley Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: #SugarShane #Mosley retires (and not a moment too soon ;-). #Boxing #HOF for sure.

Game Of Thrones Season 2 Finale

Game Of Thrones: Woah! That was an interesting finale. Apparently Season 3 is gonna be World War Z In Winterfell. Could be cool, right? @HBO

Federer Squeaks By Goffin, Djokovic Struggles

Enjoy #Federer (#GOAT) win over the fun kid #Goffin. His next match could be the end! Between this & #Nole #Rafa is enjoying his b'day #RG12

02 June 2012


Aliens: Closer to Paul Verhoeven than I remembered it being. Still, James Cameron redeems it with that insane T2-presaging end sequence! Wow

01 June 2012

National Doughnut Day

Best Day, Ever! #NationalDoughnutDay @FrostedTweets Sadly, no @KrispyKreme nearby or @DunkinDonuts in LA (?!) http://t.co/IspRoziU


Alien: Not quite as scary as I remembered, but better in almost every other way. Doesn't feel dated. Great stuff from a young Ridley Scott.
