The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

It may seem like a thankless struggle at times, but I will not rest until everyone who needs to see Battlestar Galactica has seen Battlestar Galactica. I don't think there has ever been a show so great that has been viewed by so few. Remedy that today! I sort of like the graininess of my current Spinal Tap DVD, but if you'd rather see Nigel, David, Derek and, uh, Liam in delicious 1080P than today is your day. I was excited about the prospect of a live-action Green Lantern movie right up to the point where Ryan Reynolds became involved. I like Ryan in light comedies, but he is all wrong for the Lantern Corps. I mean, Sinestro would just completely kick his ass! Finally, I urge everyone to do their patriotic duty by clicking on the Sarah Palin link and donating today!

Only those haughty, Harvard blue-bloods would have the temerity to interpret a tie as a victory. Damn upper-establishment types! Actually, the real story is quite fascinating and this documentary is a worthy re-telling of that fateful day. I like The Whitest Kids U Know but Miss March was a complete miss. Gretchen Mol has quietly become a very solid actress. An American Affair isn't much, but she was great in The Ten and The Notorious Bettie Page. Prepare yourself for Tarantino's Basterds by screening Svenson's (basically unrelated) Bastards. Bart Got a Room was one of those decent indies that spent a couple of weeks in theaters, then disappeared. It's worth a look on DVD. Same goes for Big Man Japan which is wonderfully weird.
