Let's see...on the big screen, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Wreck-It Ralph [In reply to] Can't Post

Perks - Nicely constructed movie, if sometimes painful to watch as it brought back those memories of awkward adolescence. Poignant, funny, and at times, harrowing. Emma Watson was quite good.

Wreck-It Ralph - my gamer son (whose collegiate major is digital game design) convinced me to see this with him. Wreck-It Ralph and pals were just the ticket to wipe away any lingering memories of teenaged angst from the aforementioned film. Although my gaming is really old school (as in pre-digital pinball), I nonetheless appreciated the references to games of the 80s and 90s, as well as more intense (and violent) games. The animation is fantastic, and although the plot is not hard to predict, the pace was good and the characters were engaging.

On the small screen, I watched The Trip, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's mockumentary. Their riffing was very funny, not necessarily LOL funny, but still, amusing. It was also a neat travelogue of sorts for northern England.

I also caught up with Breaking Bad through the end of season 4. Truly a remarkable series and just my ticket with its exploration of the inner angels and demons of human nature. Giancarlo Esposito is one amazing actor.

I checked out the official Hobbit AUJ web site and was chewing over the dates and venues here in the Boston metro area. I'm pretty sure we'll go to the showing at the Loews at Boston Common. It's a large theater that retains design elements of a bygone era, and has comfy chairs.
