Federer and Heat Win

Good to see #Federer pull through a potentially tough match. Great to see the #Heat annihilate the #Pacers. Sad that the #Kings lost.

Serena & Venus Crash Out at French Open

Bummed out about #Serena & #Venus losing on same day at #FrenchOpen. Future of #Tennis bleaker than when I had to sit thru Gotterdammerung.

Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2014 Finals

Bloody h*ll!  8 straight wins for #KKR to power into #IPL final! This is not fitting the eternal narrative of the #Bengali underdog #IPL2014

RIP Maya Angelou

RIP Maya Angelou. Discovered her during Clinton's inaugural from afar. Even then she had a huge impact on me. A true American icon.

X-Men Days of Future Past

X-Men Days of Future Past: Needlessly complicated but a nice effort to be more ambitious with a summer film. Katniss & Quicksilver steal it.

Josh Beckett No-Hitter

Nice to see Josh #Beckett pitch like it's 2003 again! If the #Heat win tomorrow this could turn into the Greatest Sports Weekend, Ever!

Celeb Sighting: Danny DeVito (and Rhea Perlman)

2nd-Greatest Celeb Sighting Ever!: Danny DeVito in the men's room. I was so starstruck I couldn't think of anything witty. Rhea Perlman too!

Enough Said

Enough Said: Another superb Holofcener. Totally sad that I, just like Awards Season, so unjustly ignored it last year. JLD & JG both shine.

RIP Gordon Willis

RIP Gordon Willis. One of those mythical figures movie lovers hold in awe. Huge reason why the 70s are considered Golden Age of Filmmaking.

Words and Pictures

Words and Pictures: Delightful rom-com for grow ups. Binoche is luminous as always & the once-great Clive Owen shows what a star he truly is

Kings Beat the Ducks

Great win by the #Kings! To come all the way back against the #Sharks & #Ducks means they, not @MagicJohnson, are the true #KingOfLA. :-) 

Dinara Safina Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: Dinara #Safina retires at effectively 26(!l. Saw her upset Sharapova at the French Open. Great match!

RIP Malik Bendjelloul

RIP Malik Bendjelloul. Dead way too young at 36. We were all hoping that Searching For Sugar Man was the start of a long documentary career.

Citizen Kane

Citizen Kane: Sure it's the Greatest Film, Ever! But the Ben Burtt intro & honest-to-goodness 35mm(!) print made it even Greatest-er! @LACMA

Devastating Draw for Liverpool Dashes Title Hopes

Locke: The kind of tour-de-force every best-actor-of-his-generation dreams of putting on his reel. DP Zambarloukos pulls of an amazing feat!
