In the meantime, the hometown Capitals have climbed into first place. You may recall that they fired their coach earlier this season, firmly settled in last place with the worst record in hockey.
Does anyone doubt that Alexander Ovechkin is this year's MVP?

Right At Your Door is the story of a couple in Los Angeles and their experiences after terrorists set off a string of "dirty" bombs downtown. He's inside their home, sealed in according to government instructions. She's outside, contaminated.
Frightening, agonizing, frustrating, infuriating, terrifying and thought provoking; it's all of these things, delivered via a size-12 kick right to your gut.
If you have Netflix, bump it to the top of your queue. If you rent, look for it at Blockbuster or your local shop.

*Don't you love how I've managed to work in the fact that I'm sick into every post today? Whiny little baby? Moi?
Following Buckethead's advice, first you go read this. Trust me. Er, if you find my kind of twisted humor funny, then trust me. Otherwise, don't... but still, go read.
Then, click this link to the Ministry of Minor Perfidy to see the "missing" picture. If you did this in the right order, i.e. read first, then missing picture, then you will howl with laughter. Or snort and choke. Or decide once and for all that I'm going to burn in hell for eternity. Or D, all of the above.
You'd think that as the number got larger, it would get easier, but it doesn't. A lot of films that obviously aren't in your personal top 10 make it into your top 50, and it's a whole lot harder to narrow down that list. My first crack at my favorite top 50 had 90 movies on it, and there's no doubt that I've forgotten some.
Below are my "50 Favorite Movies".
Army of Darkness
Big Trouble in Little China
Black Pit of Doctor M
Brotherhood of the Wolf
Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death
Escape from New York
Killer Klowns from Outer Space
Monty Python's Life of Brian
My Favorite Year
Night of the Living Dead
Saving Private Ryan
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Shaun of the Dead
ST: The Wrath of Khan
The Blues Brothers
The Day the Earth Stood Still
The Glenn Miller Story
The Mummy (1932)
The Mummy (1999)
The Shawshank Redemption
Throne of Blood
It would have been nice if I could have put in things like "John Wayne's cavalry movies" or "Cary Grant movies" or "Directed by Alfred Hitchcock". I've reviewed many of these here on Rocket Jones and some over at Wildside Cinema.
Agree? Disagree? Leave comments. I'm stuck in bed sick this weekend. Amuse me or I'll start whining.
When I come up with something pleasant, I'll post it. Ha, I almost said 'worthwhile' instead of 'pleasant'! As if...
