Wow, it's Monday already? It's August already? Time flies, huh? I covered a lot on yesterday's Monthly Round-up so I'll keep this brief. Plus I want to catch a screening of Tucker and Dale vs. Evil later. I don't know about everyone else, but I really enjoyed Captain America this week. Hanna too. That was quite a duo last Friday.
Should I be kicking myself for deciding not to see Tarkovsky's Stalker at the cinema this evening, and for letting a Q+A session with Beginners director Mike Mills on Wednesday sell out? Probably! Oh well, before heading to Melbourne on Friday, I'll have the time to check out L'illusioniste. Actually, we also have Rise of the Planet of the Apes released on Thursday. Talk about an underwhelming sneak-up!
