Out of the Blue

When the Knicks started losing playoff games to the Celtics after going up 3-0 in their series, I was able to take some comfort from history: No NBA team has ever overcome such a deficit to win a seven game playoff, and sure enough, the Celts were not able to complete their run, which certainly showed a lot of championship heart. Now I have to start rooting against history after they lost game one in their series against the Pacers, as the Knicks have never won a playoff series after losing the home opener. And the last time they lost game one at home was also against the Pacers back in 1995. At least the Pacers don't still have Reggie Miller, though I'm pretty sure the Knick killer would still be able to put up 20 points per game against the Knickerbockers at age 47, so thankfully he's decided to take it easy these days.

oblivion isn't a perfect film, but i agree that it's underrated. if you're a scifi fan you owe it to yourself to watch it at some point. i'm as much a tom cruise hater as the next guy, but he does his role credit in this film. he's not all fiery intensity this time; he actually finds some small measure of subtlety to give peace to his character. and the scifi visuals are, at times, breathtaking. also the soundtrack is phenomenal. certainly it's nowhere near as bad as prometheus.

Tom Cruise may be a nutty Scientologist but hes also one hell of an actor who has taken a lot of risks in his career over the years. Like Keanu Reeves who is often the butt of internet jokes, Cruise is known for being very professional on set, has taken huge pay cuts just to make films happen and given bonuses to the crews. Unless people want all their stars to be media mavericks who rarely take chances like Will Smith then we're going to have to tolerate the odd behavior from many in the arts
