And in new movie news, the film version of Friday Night Lights, one of my favorite books, hits theaters today. Football bores me silly, but this book is one of the best reflections on sports and society I've ever read.

By the way, you know what's really amusing? Hearing a couple of resolutely straight guys nonetheless list off actors they think are hot and really getting into it. I'm not naming names, but someone's got a thing for Boromir and Faramir. Which I can totally understand. They poked holes in my theory that everyone wants to do David Bowie, though.
And in a piece of non-movie news, if you need a pick-me-up, go check out ariedana's Best of LJ thread. It's really sweet.
