Is drunk walking really more dangerous than drunk driving?
Yep. Sometimes we want files. Dropbox vs. iCloud.
Merry New Year, everybody!

Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol is a terrific thriller with action sequences that function as a kind of action poetry.
That quote is from Roger Ebert’s MI4 review, and I agree with it 100%.
See it on the biggest screen you can find for maximum vertigo during the movie’s insane Dubai human fly sequence (which apparently impressed Ebert as much as it impressed me).
HitFix.com interview with Louis CK from a couple of years ago.
Philip Bloom has posted a nice movie lighting tutorial.
Aaron Gustafson’s Smart Markup for Smarter Websites presentation (late-night edition).
iWebInspector is (apparently) a free tool to debug, profile and inspect web applications running on iOS Simulator.
Lastly, but not leastly, Happy Christmas! And I hope you have a terrific 2012!

Green Lantern is not a good movie, but it isn’t terrible enough to get worked up about. Nobody seems to be trying except for the actors, but those actors don’t have anything of substance to work with.

The Descendants seems to be getting a lot of buzz lately. Which is great, because it is a funny, smartly-acted, finely-observed movie for grown-ups. I’m not hearing as much buzz about Young Adult, which is a shame, because it is in the same league as The Descendants. I’m especially impressed with the cast–Charlize Theron delivers a fantastic lead performance, and every other actor, from Theron’s co-stars (Patton Oswalt and Patrick Wilson) to the day players, does a good job keeping up with her.
Here’s a photo Jason Hamric took of the Cutters on the closed-circuit TV at Bottletree…
I’ll probably regret saying this one day… but I really dig the trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
