Having just gotten out of a relationship which had eerie parallels to (500) Days of Summer, I have no intention of seeing it anytime soon. You should, though. It's wonderfully melancholy and real (excepting the amazing musical sequence with the animated musical bird). I was thrilled to see that District 9 made such a large impact at the box-office. It gives hope to those of us who are tired of seeing nothing but pre-packaged concepts that have been given virtual body-cavity searches by the studios' risk-management trolls.

It Might Get Loud may not be a great documentary (mostly because director Davis Guggenheim is a good, not great director). That said, it is required viewing if only to see Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White jam together on "In My Time of Dying." Mike Judge just gets no love from moviegoing America. Extract was funny, weird, dark and nothing like what I expected it to be. Naturally, it was ignored. Here's hoping people find it on DVD in much the same way that they found (and rescued) Office Space.
