What have you been reading, listening to, watching?

Not that we care...
But Golden Globe nominations are here. Interested to see that Woody Allen's Match Point received a best picture, best director, best screenplay and best actress (Scarlet Johannson) nomination.

Last week I marveled at the rating King Kong was pulling at Metacritics, landing it among the best films of all time. Now that more critic's reviews have rolled in, the average score has settled down to a more reasonable 81. What stands as the highest rated movie of the year now? Capote and The Best of Youth, tied at 89.

Weekend Box Office
1. King Kong
2. The Chronicles of Narnia (BO disappointment in week 2?)
3. The Family Stone
4. Harry Potter
5. Syriana (is this the year of Clooney?)

Anyone seen the ape movie yet? Box Office Mojo is indicating that the sales aren't quite as high as were hoped. But if the movie's as good as everyone seems to be saying, the tickets will sell.
