Hey Guys,

Was great to hear my "Last Five" so thank you :-) To answer Michael's question regarding The Bands Visit, it does have a cinema release here, in Sydney it is showing at a couple of the arthouse cinemas, so it is limited but it's great that we have an opportunity to see it on the big screen.

Nice one Michelle, glad you enjoyed the Bank Job. A great Australian film I'd recommend is The Proposition, a western-type film which is a lot like Three Burials... check it out, Guy Pearce, Ray Winstone, Danny Huston and a great director.

Finally got around to watching Tropic Thunder, and recently watched Pineapple Express as well, so I can now tell you that if i had $10 in my pocket to see one of them again, I would pick Tropic Thunder by a country mile. I thought that caricatures were taken to logical or absurd conclusions on purpose, and I bought into it whole-hog. Plus I quit smoking dope something like a decade ago and couldn't shake the feeling that Seth Rogan was doing a Jeff Garlin impression throughout the movie. That said, how many goddamn Danny McBride movies am I going to see this year? We saw these two movies in quick succession after Foot Fist Way, so I'm half expecting to see him in whatever Bond movie from the 70s I watch on cable at 3AM when I'm feeding our daughter.
