If I ever had a new aria to learn I would listen to Gedda first in order to make sure I was “doing it right.”

Oh boy, did I like Gravity. I know, I know - so did everybody else. I don't care. I liked it. When I walked out of the theater, they asked for my reaction. I said, "I'm still thinking. Sometimes it's a fine line between simple and profound." I still think that's true. But I've realized that it doesn't really affect my overall opinion of the film: even if it's simple and not profound, it's really well done.
And hey, Scott liked When Comedy Went to School, a movie about Jewish comedians! There may be a punchline in there somewhere, but it's probably offensive. I'll let Scott add it in the comments.
Would you believe we didn't see Runner Runner? Scott may get to it today. Otherwise, you're stuck with my summary.
Scott did, however, see Ride with Larry, part of the San Diego Film Festival, which is going on right now. And he liked it! A lot! Given the subject matter and Scott's temperament, that's really saying something.
