Oh man, @headgeek666 himself is here at the Paramount for Micmacs! I’m so excited for this.

Micmacs brought tears of joy at the end, a biting, heartwarming revenge tale, I will own this on Blu-Ray the day it comes out.

7:03 PM Mar 13th via TweetDeck

I don’t think it will have the same broad appeal as Amelie, or A Very Long Engagement, but it deserves to be seen by all.

7:05 PM Mar 13th via TweetDeck

It made me so happy to hear that Jeunet wanted to make this in 3D, and that would have been freaking jaw droppingly fun.

Well, it’s that time again, 20% battery! If I don’t pick up, my phone died.
