* I'm probably underrating this. I need to see it again during its offical U.S. theatrical release in August/Sept.

Normally, I'd also do a music list. Since I'm no longer reviewing for a website, I've heard much less new stuff than I did a year ago: barely twenty albums. I'm going to write a review of my current favorite in another week or two, but I'm not going to say what it is just yet--I want it to be a surprise.
