The Squid and the Whale

    2 November 2005, early morning

After watching Broken Flowers at Cumberland, and then going the following week to see March of the Penguins, it seemed reasonable to get a membership at the cinema. I though about all the money I’d save if I stuck to watching a movie a week for a year. (You save $1 on Tuesdays, $2 the rest of the week.) Of course, after watch March of the Penguins, I never went back—until last night. Matt suggested we go watch The Squid and the Whale, a film I had not heard anything about. The Squid and the Whale is about a family going through a divorce, and how the divorce effects the two children in the family. The film is funny. It’s not a comedy per-say, but there is plenty of humor throughout the film, even during some of the more serious moments of the movie. The writing, acting, and cinematography are all top-notch. Watch this film.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
