What?!?!?!? I'm shocked!!!! SHOCKED!!!!

The critics actually loved (500) Days of Summer. It has an 86% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes:

I can't wait to see Crazy Heart. I see that "The Weary Kind {Theme From Crazy Heart)" was nominated for Best Original Song. It would be great if it gets nominated at the Oscars and Bridges gets to perform it at the ceremony.


I'm even more behind than normal and haven't seen any recent movies in many months, but if you like Colin Firth you should certainly see him in one of his best roles (back when he was young, even), a law related one: The Advocate. It's a very nice film for lawyers and law professors.

I think I saw The Advocate some years ago. Is that the one set in medieval England involving some very strange legal cases? I do remember something about a contract involving a pig at one point. Is that the same movie?


The Advocate is set in medieval France (though it's in English, so perhaps easy to mistake) and does involve Firth's character (whom I believe is based on a real lawyer) defending animals in several cases. I found it to be quite an enjoyable law movie.
