I saw it on our mega screen (not quite IMAX) in 3D, and that's my take on it, too.
IMAX and 3D. It was worth the extra $2.00 in ticket price.
There is a discussion going on another board about the significance/symbolism of the Hank Williams song. I had eh pleasure of telling the guy h had waaayy too much time on his hands.

Gravity? Didn't the republicans just shut down the government to repeal that? Or was it the Law Of Averages? The Law Of Supply And Demand? There was SOME law that they didn't like that they were willing to destroy the country for.

OH! I know! The Law Of Unintended Consequences!

I'm at the transit center. Its pretty much an industrial area. Some random person comes up to me asking if I know where a store is, close by. It needs to accept food stamps and be close so they can catch the bus to DSHS (welfare office)...(sigh) do I look like I woud know that? Even still...look around, transit center, and, warehouses.
I would have directed her to the nearest employment office

Perfectly safe for work. Just look at the magnified images. Subtle but still safe

It took my SIL almost two whole months at school to decide she wants to swap roommates. That's progress, right? It was 2 weeks last year.

Is she settling in any better at this school?

Yes and yes. She got a job doing...something on campus. We haven't heard from her much and she's 8 hours away, so we certainly haven't seen her. It is glorious.

My in-laws have been doing better as well. They both stopped smoking (again) and seem to be coming out of their depressive hazes a bit. It's almost pleasant to talk to them--J's stepdad actually has a sense of humor...who knew? He's been helping us out with a few projects around our house. I'm cautiously optimistic about a relationship with them--I know they're not healthy people, but they're putting forth effort, so...

Sounds like some cautious optimism is in order.

Pffft, they can't become normal or even semi-normal! If that happens, all we will have are my neighbors for some excitement.

Dear Prudence

This is the letter that is making the news on the websites about drinking and rape.

Her whole column is very long. I'll put the other letters up separately
