Pebbles, Vol. 19: Screen Special

Film week post #4

1. Movie enjoyability as a function of movie quality.

2. Tyler Cowen reviews The End of Poverty. Scathingly. Someone should ask him to write about Michael Moore's latest.

3. The utility of computers is sometimes exaggerated in films and TV series.

4. US films' domestic box office, without and with adjustment for ticket price inflation. No. 1 on the adjusted list is as expected, but have you ever heard of The Robe? Or It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World? Not I.

5. "Somewhat edgy gift for a person in the terminal ward."
