OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies and OSS 117: Lost in Rio, the Michel Hazanavicius directed spy spoofs starring Jean Dujardin.
I watched Cairo not too long before The Artist came out. At this point, I can't say which I prefer but I might lean towards Cairo as the better movie. At the least it has some very funny moments.

Tomorrow: Anatomy of a Murder or A Clockwork Orange + Time After Time
Saturday: Anatomy of a Murder or if... + Evilenko
Sunday: Say Anything + Almost Famous or O Lucky Man!
So, James Stewart or a Malcolm McDowell double feature? Cameron Crowe double feature or a Malcolm McDowell epic? I've seen all of these with the exception of Evilenko (although I did see HBO's take on the same subject made 10 years earlier - 1994's Citizen X).

I'd put this one at the top of your to-do list. They hardly ever show it, and McDowell will be there in person!
O Lucky Man!

Tomorrow morning my wife and I are driving up the coast to San Francisco, then taking the BART to Oakland to see Napoleon at the grand old Paramount Theatre on Saturday. Trusted sources have assured me it will be a you-had-to-have-been-there kind of event. I'm just hoping the seats I chose won't induce nosebleeds. (At $40+ per ticket, it's either my nose or my wallet.)
Read about the restoration in the NYT here.
BTW, there are still seats!

Won't be seeing Napoleon, but I will be seeing The Hunger Games (...yeah, I realize that's probably not anything to brag about). Also, I've got Nostalgia for the Light and Mysteries of Lisbon waiting for me, though I'm not sure I'll be able to fit them both in.
Of those two, I liked Nostalgia for the Light more (I'm not big on period pieces, though Mysteries is definitely worth watching). Plus, you could watch Nostalgia three times in the time it would take to watch Mysteries of Lisbon once.

Looking ahead to next month, the Aero has an interesting match up for Easter Sunday - Harvey and Donnie Darko.

Uh, I forgot to unlock the DVD case when I checked this title out, so it'll have to wait a couple of days. Instead I watched The First Grader and The Way last night.
Looking forward to watching Young Adult again tonight, and seeing how I interpret the ending. I'm also curious about how Sarah will react to the film.
