    1. Mr. Dressup was awesome.
    2. Degrassi is still awesome.

    Period.

  2. I love Run Lola Run! It is one of my favourite films. I actually like a lot of German films, but don’t think I’ve read much German literature – think I need to do something about that!

    Run Lola Run rocks! I love that movie. Great movie pick!

    @ Simona: Agreed and agreed! Americans just don’t understand… sigh.
     
    @ Jackie: I haven’t read much German literature either… or seen many German films for that matter! But I did like RLR a lot! Should probably experience more of both!
     
    @ Nadia: It’s been on our queue for ever, so I’m glad we finally bumped it to the top. It was definitely a fun way to spend an hour and a half!

    Very cool that you got the chance to see Labyrinth at the midnight show! It sounds like it was quite a fun time, what with all the costumes and drinks. Run Lola Run sounds like it would be a fun movie to watch. I like the fact that the viewer gets a little bit of information on the characters that Lola comes in contact with during her adventures. The Perfect Getaway sounds terrible, and I will not be adding that one to the queue!I tried to get into Glee after a friend of mine raved about it for a long time, but I only lasted a few weeks and then stopped watching it. It had it’s moments, but overall I was not a fan. I had not heard much about A Mighty Wind, but it sounds like something that I might like. I am going to start with Best in Show first though, since I haven’t seen any of Guest’s movies as of yet, and you mention that is the place to start. I m also going to be skipping Assassination of a High School President, it just doesn’t sound like a good fit for me. Great set of reviews!

    @ zibilee: Midnight Labyrinth was like a dream come true! So fun! Do try Run Lola Run! It’s short and fun, and your attention won’t wane! Glad to hear I’m not alone in my Glee ambivalence! Everyone loves it and despite my unabashed love of musicals, it makes me uncomfortable! Best in Show is amazing, so please watch it as soon as you can! Love!

    ANTHONY BENJAMIN KUEHN!!!
    You do **NOT** besmirch Mr. Dressup!
    Please apologize (to the entire nation).

    Also: why did your parents double-dip and give your brother the same first name as your middle name?? Odd…

    @ taryn: Don’t be too mad at Tony for his lack of understanding of Mr. Dressup… just think instead about how sad we should feel for him that his childhood was obviously barren of laughter, imagination, and fun!
