My advice to you, don't see "No Reservations" or "Michael Clayton." Both those movies are icky but that's just my opinion :P

I'm totally with you on the Ratatoiulle. Even though in Japanese the title isn't Ratatouille, it's Remy's Delicious Restaurant. I hear they were going to title it "Brilliant Sushi Chef Rat and his Honorable French Kitchen Knife of Wisdom", but it was determined to stray too far from the subject matter.

And hey, I'm coming home this August for good, sort of absolutely kind of, so I'll definitely be hitting you up for your recommendations from the past few years. Kind of unsettling that I haven't heard of any of the movies you like other than Remy's Delicious Restaurant...

I just saw Waitress for my second time- such a great movie, and so sad about the writer/director. Miss you kelli girl!
