Ladies and gentlemen, let's make a resolution to share more openly in 2011. I'll start with this, our semi-nightly off-topic thread, in which we can talk about anything and everything.
We can talk about the death of actor Pete Postlethwaite, who I recently saw in both The Town and Inception, a pair of movies I watched in December 2010. The actor was memorable for some fine films, like The Usual Suspects and The Constant Gardener. And he was also in Aeon Flux. But let's remember the better Pete Postlethwaite roles while we talk about movies, music, literature, current events, personal anecdotes and more.
