    Top 20 Overused Songs-I disagree about Requiem for a Dream’s theme. But the others? Oh yes.

    I’m suprised that RED got an OK review. It looked kind of stupid.

  • Quinn

    The quote is from “A Single Man”. Speaking of “A Single Man”, have you seen it? I haven’t but CANNOT wait to.

  • Jose

    I take it you’re not excited for “The Town” Alex?

  • @Andrew – The review is from Ain’t It Cool News the “love everything” site, so take it with a grain of salt.

    @Quinn – I saw it last night and wasn’t blown away, but it was visually very pretty.

    @Jose – I’m really excited for ‘The Town’ having loved ‘Gone Baby Gone’ and having a crush on Rebecca Hall.

  • Jose

    I’m actually looking forward to RED, mainly to see Helen Mirrem kick butt.

    Hey Alex, no Quick Takes this week?

  • They’re coming. Just been uber busy this month.
