First: I sent another query yesterday. This one's submission instructions are slightly confusing (does she not want a sample chapter, or does she want the first 10 pages, hmm?) but the FAQs are amusing. Some writers think they are special snowflakes, it seems.

But the real point of the post is: I want more movie recs! What films have been or will soon be released to DVD which I have not yet seen and should see? I've just added Precious, An Education, A Serious Man, Whip It, Jennifer's Body, Slumdog Millionaire, 500 Days of Summer, Humpday and The Invention of Lying to my Netflix queue, and I've been waiting for my turn with The Hangover and Inglourious Basterds for some time now. What else should I put on the list?

So. I have finally seen Forrest Gump. While aggressively treacly, I must admit that the scene of Forrest breaking out of his leg braces was...powerful. Then later, his Mama tells him that dying is just another part of life, and he later quotes her and follows up with, "I wish it wasn't." Excuse me: *whimper* I'm not quite sure what the point of the movie was, aside from blatant philosophical manipulation, but a moving flick nonetheless.
