Movies

Sky High - I went to see this film solely for Bruce Campbell, and it wound up being the most pleasant surprise of the year. Highly recommended.

Most Anticipated
Junebug - I just love that dreamy Ben McKenzie.

TV

Currently Watching
Footballers' Wives - It's dark, engaging and oh so British, which works for me.

Most Anticipated
Naruto - This anime series begins airing on Cartoon Network on September 10th and I can't wait. It's one of the best shows to come down the pike in years, animated or live.
