When I saw the movie for the first time five years ago, I watched it maybe 7 or 8 times fairly soon afterwards. Then I basically left it alone. I enjoyed LIT more than just about any other movie I can think of but figured I would get on with my life. After not having seen it for several years, I was...

Hey Pitman. Good to see you're still alive and kicking. I think that's an inspired choice. But it's hard to imagine anyone but Bill Murray doing that role. George Clooney and Natalie Portman? Clooney isn't a goofy as Murray obviously, but he can do comedy. Plus it would be hard to believe that Cloon...

Hey y'all.

I just saw Bill in The Life Aquatic (2004). I thought he was good in that. Not close to the LIT level but it was solid.

Lip my stocking

A cute little clip based on the premium fantasy scene. Basically just stylized subtitles but if you're a fan of LIT you might like it.

Great minds think alike. I just came on here to post the same video.

It's got an almost LiT feel to it with the wistful music that is used.

As of today, you can see all the skits on youtube. NBC will have them removed eventually.

Here's one

IMO, they're pretty dull.


Here's the comedic highlight -- the SNL Digital Short (no Scarlett tho)

THe Digital Short WAS hilarious. They usually are. I think that's because they put more prep work and thinking into them. The skits are pretty lame in comparison. For me the highlight was Scarlett's singing bit in the opening monologue. She's a great singer and I'm just mesmerized by her. She's real...

It does sound appropriate. I just hope Scarlett manages to get over the down mood left over from the V tech shootings this week. Usually SNL lampoons the news, as they did last week with the Imus thing. This week, they can't conceivably deal with it humorously. Maybe they can make up of the excessiv...

I'm a big fan of that Verve album. And I like your video a lot. Its very enjoyable to see that scene with new ears, as it were. It's better than anything I could have done. Thing is, there is a presence to the Ashcroft vocals that introduces a confusion in the viewer of the film. I think one reason ...

Amen to the sequel idea. I'm secretly hoping Sofia has a string of less-than-stellar movies that forces her to consider this once-impossible possibility.

I just saw Eternal Sunshine. Great movie. Not in the same class as LIT, but provocative and interesting, if a little frantic and gimmicky at times. I found both characters sympathetic. Joel is an introvert -- I can relate to that. Clementine is a bit kooky and impulsive. Maybe those are classic male...

She's special alright -- she was born on the day of a solar eclipse. It's too bad that she has become so popular. At least, that's how I see it. She's doing shampoo commercials (see my topic in appearances) now and starting to resemble a archtypical hollywood starlet. Maybe she's no different from a...

Scarlett's shampoo commercials

I just saw a very blonde-looking Scarlett doing some shampoo commercial on television here in Canada. Not good. Of course, I like to see her on any occasion but this is overexposure. She's on the way to megastardom but it hopefully won't turn into tackiness at the same time. I wonder if I've been gu...

Yes, she knew obviously. I just thought it wasn't handled at all when they first met. To me, that's a script weakness because it seems unrealistic. She knows the guy is a big movie star and says nothing. I don't think so. She could have said something quickly unfawning and got on with the normal con...

Thanks Spock. Yeah, I'm slow on the uptake sometimes. Plus subtitles can be unreliable -- although that's usually the case with translation rather than same language captioning.
