As this afternoon's rainy day activity, we went to see the new Alice in Wonderland. I was disappointed. I would have been deeply disappointed if I hadn't already been deeply over Tim Burton.

I haven't read 300, Frank Miller's graphic novel upon which the upcoming movie has been based. But I am terribly amused to remember that in Miller's earlier work, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, a passing reference is made to a porn star named "Hot Gates".

I just saw Friday Night Lights for the first time, and I am awestruck. The plot involves a high school football team in an economically depressed part of Texas, but the theme is masculinity. It's rare enough to see a portrayal of masculinity that isn't a total caricature. But this movie is the best portrayal I've ever seen of what it means to be a man—and to become a man— in modern America.1


1Admittedly, I don't get out much, especially lately.
