    An interesting documentary running on HBO right now on Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. Really good reminder of Breslin's acerbic wit and Hamill's beautiful gift for writing.

    I thought Gay Talese, one of the talking heads in the movie, made a great point when he observed that journalists of Breslin and Hamill's era, and before, typically came from more modest backgrounds while journalists today are too often graduates of top flight universities. As such they may lack a basic understanding of "the street" that journalists used to have.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    If you havent seen Three Identical Strangers put that high on your list. A fascinating story...both in good and very very awful ways.

    I'm sorta curious about it, but it's not high on my list right now.

    My wife and I skipped the SOTU address and went to Aquaman instead. It's mindless fun, but the best actors were of course used the least - Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe and ( ) Dolph Lundgren. It's pretty much a paint by numbers action movie, a retelling of Heracles/Hercules, more or less. There are a few genuinely funny moments, so I have to give it that.

    Saw Miss Bala yesterday with some coworkers. I liked it. Not a must see by any means, but entertaining enough. Hollywood makeup artist goes to Mexico to help her friend in a pagent, ends up getting mixed up with a drug cartel/DEA investigation, when she can't find her friend after the nightclub they were in gets shot up. It's a poor man's Taken:Mexico.

    Lego Movie 2: B-

    It's hard for a movie like this to capture what made the original so special. It plays off the same notes as the original. It did get some hearty laughs from me, but since it's repeats, they fall much softer than the 1st time around. It also seemed like the side characters didn't really have any moments. If you have kids, this is probably a better movie for you than it was me. If you liked the original, check it out when it comes on streaming...
