We had a rainy fourth of july in Colorado Springs. Instead of sitting in the wet grass to watch fireworks, my friend (and fellow law clerk) jayne and I saw Ratatouille and Transformers. Ratatouille is one of my new favorite movies. It's a great story, combined with beautiful filmmaking. The Pixar crew keeps getting better. The fact that it centered around cooking didn't hurt.

Transformers was badass, as expected. The dialogue and writing were very summer-popcorn-movie, but it was a fun ride. And badass.
