In Bruges

Bruges as a physical manifestation of purgatory. And Farrell released from his (self-made) hell.

Knocked Up

Gender-specific views of parenting and marriage? Yup, hits the nail squarely, I'd say.

The X Files: Season 6

Best episode, so far: Dreamland II-- McKean and Duchovny doing the mirror scene from Duck Soup.

Saturday Night Fever

A poor man's Rocky or Mean Streets, with sappy music and silly dancing. (Did we really like this stuff back then?)

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

Oh, who cares if it's obvious what will happen-- this is one smartly shot, scripted and acted film.

MASH: Season 8

Radar leaving is kinda depressing, but it's not like they're bereft of good characters.

The Sopranos: Season 4

In future seasons, I would much prefer fewer boring episodes in the middle of the run. Why does this show have to be so inconsistent?

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

Faintly ridiculous watching blinked letters being translated into English (e.g., M=D). The rest of this--phenomenal, and in case you were wondering, not boring.

The Simpsons: Season 5

Yes, we recognize how funny this show is, but we can't sit through more than 2 episodes without falling asleep.
