    I’d like to see Scorsese pair up with DeNiro in a different project and costar with Joe Pesci. Those three are incredible together.

  • Could it be a movie where Joe Pesci’s character DOESN’T die by the end?

  • They’re filming the epilogue? I was really hoping they’d leave it out. Man, what an awful end to the “Harry Potter” series. The last line of the book was so great, and then they had to add the stupid coda. I think I’ll go tear those pages out of my copy of “Deathly Hallows” right now (kidding). Seriously, though, that was so awful. The movies should be great in spite of it, though.

    “Micmacs” looks very interesting.

    I greatly enjoyed Micmacs at TIFF last year. Jeunet and Danny Boon introduced the film and they were really really funny. The world Jeunet created for the ‘team’ of quirky characters is absolutely brillant. And the score is so so cool. The ending is hilarious too. Ooo maybe I’ll go see it again this weekend!
