Notes from the Manager
In case you're not up on your new movies (or don't live in the States or something), the movie they're watching is Michael Mann's Public Enemies, which stars Johnny Depp as John Dillinger, opposite Christian Bale as Melvin Purvis, the man in charge of the investigation that kind of just killed him instead of actually bothering to bring him to justice. (Oops.) Here's the trailer:
The use of handheld digital video cameras on Public Enemies has caused something of a movie-geek controversy, in part because some people think it's inappropriate to use digital video on a period film at all (which I think is silly) and in part because some people think the movie looks like shit.
Me, I'll save my comments for Monday, after Lydia and the gang have had a chance to discuss it first, but I will say this: if you don't mind the way it looks, the story is terrific, and the actors are great.

So the word going around about the new How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer is that there is a massive, why-would-you-put-that-in-the-trailer spoiler in it. I don’t know, because I haven’t seen it.
Thanks to Berk’s Grapevine, here’s a spoiler-free (or spoiler light) version:
Those of you who want to see the original can find it over here. So help me gods, if any of you talk about the spoiler in here, you’ll be banned from commenting. I’d like to try to make it ’til June 13, 2014 (when the movie is out) blissfully unaware of a few details of this movie.
Anyway, though, I guess that’s around when you can expect to see Hiccup again in Multiplex.
