I finally got out and saw a couple of movies this past weekend: The Aviator and The Interpreter.
"I've designed a new plane. I call it the Spruce Moose."
The Aviator: The best movie that I've ever seen that stars Leonardo DiCaprio as an ambitious germaphobe with OCD and a Ross Perot-esque accent! This Howard Hughes biopic was quite good, but still far from Scorsese's best. And it was a bit too long. Surprisingly, I didn't want to punch Leo in the face. I guess that I've finally moved past that steaming pile Titanic.
The Interpreter: Solid acting, but the dialogue was kind of weak in parts. There were also a few plotholes. Kidman looked great. The message of the movie: "Diplomacy is good. Violence is bad, mmmkay?" It didn't change my feelings about the corrupt international fustercluck that is the United Nations, though.
