I'm giving up on keeping a seperate thing on movies... I never update it enough, so I'm just going to roll my movie viewing up into here.

We went and saw The Cooler at the 4plex on Saturday night. From the previews, I pretty much expected a comedy. William H Macy is a really funny guy, so I thought that it would be good. It was, but it most definitely wasn't a comedy (though it was funny at times). Go to IMDB if you want plot, I'm not going to rehash that here. What I will say, though, is that this is a side of Macy that I hadn't really seen before. I knew Maria Bello from Permanent Midnight, and she did a great job here. Alec Baldwin was born for his role. Be warned, it's a violent movie, but worth it.
