... and just like every other post I say, "Go see this movie now."
However, I promise I won't put in any spoilers. It was too long by a few minutes - just enough for me to go Mystery Science Theater 3000 on it and make connections with Citizen Kane and Twilight Zone. (I really thought the kids would have pig snouts. That's not a spoiler, is it?)
The oddest thing was that on the way out, I kept thinking, "Didn't I just see a movie with Ellen Page in it - OR did I?" Of course, I'd just seen Whip It over the weekend. Also, this weekend I had a dream in which a set of prosthetic gums kept trying to talk to me, and the gums just kept babbling until one day I understood they were quoting classic rock lyrics, then they began quoting old movies, and then the FBI tried to kidnap them.
(There was a paragraph here. I deleted it. It would have spoiled one thing for you. Shhh.)
I don't know that I needed to see it on the big screen, I just needed to see it so I could avoiding anything that might spoil it for me. Now I have to go back to your blogs and see what you said, because I've been skipping everything you wrote about it. The only one I'm sure I remember is the one at Blogography. If you wrote about it let me know in the comments.
