St. Nick on St. Nick's Day

Longtime readers may recall vague mentions of distribution and DVDs - but there was wishy-washyness afoot with our deal, and we withdrew. No need to rush, we figured. The movie had done well, and it wasn't going anywhere. And it still isn't - but we thought it would be nice to give it some fresh air.

So if you haven't seen it (or even if you have), plug that vimeo link into the biggest television you can find and turn out all the lights and turn it up loud...

I've skewed towards the mainstream lately - if it looks good and big, I'm there, with the exception of Skyfall, because I always somehow manage to miss James Bond movies. Here are brief thoughts on some of what I've seen:
