My reaction was pretty similar to yours, Kazu. The Earth portion of the story was everything I hoped to see in a modern all-ages movie, but the subsequent scenes really floundered with its overt preachiness and reliance on in-your-face slapstick humor to carry the character development.

I just wanted to chime in with a good word because I thought this movie, like all PTA movies, was awesome! It's a battle of the wills? Between capitalism and faith? Between American values? I don't think the movie was aiming to say anything in particular and I don't think it has to. To me it's a cha...

Save the Green Planet.

Let me tell you, this trailer does NOT prepare you for the rest of the film. I....I still don't know what to think of this film aside from the fact that I need to see it again. O_O

As is M.I.A. and I just about pissed my pants when I heard The Go! Team is coming in July. Also, Mission Creek Music Arts Festival . So much...

Here's my photo report offering. I'm really bummed I didn't take a lot more because I sure met a whole bunch more people and did a lot more things worth talkin' about. But for now this is good.

Fantastic, Phil. I had a grande ol' time and I finally finished reading Daisy Kutter (I am impressed times 10!). I also have a bunch of photos that I'll put up soon-ish with a report. I should've taken so much more. Particularly of the cartoonist round of Cranium at Derek's Sunday night! That was ch...

Welcome to the city! I'd say the usual draws of the city are the Castro, Haight/Golden Gate Park, and the Mission/Valencia. Considering you'll probably be checking out the usual Chinatown and Japantown (which are both very fine) non-typical touristy picks would be McSweeney's Pirate Shop at 826 Vale...
