Today I figured that I'd go to a movie that I'd really been wanting to see for quite some time now - Funny People. Whoops! It's gone from the local multiplex already. Oh, well. I guess I'll catch that one on DVD. At two hours and twenty minutes long, the movie is way beyond the limit I set for the Byrd's extremely unforgiving seats.
So, instead I made some noodles and watched the third season of "The State".
Tonight it's just a boy and his (sister's) dog, some pistachio almond ice cream, a nice pipe, and Let the Right One In (my brother highly recommended it).
I loved, "Let the Right One In." However, I heard that the US DVD's translation was pretty awful. Hopefully, it will be bearable enough, because this movie definitely deserves at least a cult fan-base via DVD. Great story. Although the book is waaaay more intense than the movie was, from what I've read on the IMDB message boards.
I borrowed my brother's DVD and it indeed does have the dumbed-down subtitles, but it wasn't very distracting.

And since I doubt I'll ever read the source material, I read this very spoilery comparison piece (which fleshed out a lot of the film's ambiguities): http://www.avclub.com/articles/let-the-right-one-in,25503/
