    I saw the movie "UP," and "Terminator Salvation" recently. They were both pretty good, "UP" being hilarious (especially the pre-movie short film), and "Terminator Salvation" being enjoyable, but a tad bit disappointing. There are a few little goodies in the movie though, I won't spoil them. I guess nothing will ever come close to "Judgment Day?"

    So, has anyone seen any good ones lately?!? Huh? Have you!?

    In Theaters: I was in Chicago recently and dragged my friend to see Outrage, the political documentary about closeted gay politicians voting against gay rights. The film outs a handful of well known figures.

    I didn't support this "outing" tactic before seeing the film, but seeing how extreme their anti-gay voting records were, and seeing to what extent some of them went to conceal their orientation, I'm ok with what the filmmaker did. It was a shocking documentary that left me really angry. Go see it if it's in your area.

    Rent: Elegy, with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz. She's better in this than she was in Vicky Christina Barcelona. Very good movie.

    Into the Wild was probably the best movie I've seen lately. Rented it, because I missed it in the theaters.

    UP. It's amazing how Pixar revitalized the animation art form in America.

    "UP" was a revelation. And while the kiddies will be amused by the bright colors, the humor was far more sophisticated than the average animated feature. A lot like "Wall-E" in that respect.

    Pixar never fails to amaze me. I saw UP in 2D and wasn't sorry. The story and animation were terrific.

    "Star Trek" was okay. I have been a fan of the series for years and thought some of the recent films were a waste of time. This one had Chris Pike (a plus) as Kirk. But the story took forever to get going and the villain wasn't especially or suitably scary. And for reasons I will never understand, he was seen mostly on a video screen, like the "Great Oz." That made him seem almost comical. Lately, these so-called "blockbusters" have been anything but.

    I think "Independence Day" was the last event movie that delivered on all the hype.

    Star Trek was a lotta fun, but, yeah, there were some difficulties I share from previous posters.

    I just watched MILK.

    I know it's not 'new/in theaters'....but as a gay man....I do believe it is a film every gay person, man or woman, should take the time to watch. You owe it to Harvey Milk, and most importantly... you owe it to yourself.

    I knew nothing about this man, Harvey Milk, before watching this film. I not only feel that in itself is incredibly sad but also damaging to the many gay youth who have no one to look up to, no one to represent them and no one to show them they aren't disgusting perverts who deserve solitude and ultimately, suicide. I cannot figure out why no one ever taught me about him in my History class, or about any other gay figure- as I do not know of any. I am ill-informed and uneducated about what has transpired in the years before my birth. I still do not know a single gay person where I live, even at 28. I could tell you a lot about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks and I'm not even a Black American citizen, I'm a White Canadian. Even in Canada, where it's legal for gays to marry, on a social level, it's not a fair or fun playing field. When the word Faggot is used here- not one person stands against it nor is a single shocked reaction seen; but you even try to demean a person by race with one of the many slangs...you are sure to find someone with a problem! That alone should tell you the difference between a movement based on race minority vs. sexual orientation minority. I grew up in a home where "gay" was a bad word and not to be spoken aloud. I grew up feeling bad about myself and therefore not speaking aloud. Even at 28 I still struggle...I feel pathetic that I still have this 'need/feeling' to hide my face from the world because I am afraid that someone I know will leave me for learning/knowing my truth. I have already lost enough. Had a film like MILK been shown to me and my peers while I was in high school, I TRULY believe that things would be different. I guess that in itself is a true testament to this film. How many films can you say have made you realize the importance of just showing your face? I honestly have a lot to think about, a lot to wager and some major decisions to make. I don't even know where to begin...but I'm glad it started with this film.

    It always amazes me how Pixar is able to feel a movie with such heart, and soul. The characters in these movies always come to life, and at times are very beautiful. Furthermore, they are freaking hilarious!!!!!!

    Example:

    This one contains spoilers, so beware if you haven't seen WALL-E!



    This next one is just cute!
