Attention: Hollywood Theaters!

I hope the movie "Babel (2006)" will be shown here SOON, instead of waiting for the release of its DVD.

While watching movies at home has its advantages, nothing beats the thrill of watching a movie on big screen--plus the smell of popcorns, the chattering around you, the shrieks, the grunts, the cursing, the wonderment, and the like, the socialization before, during and after the show, and the mere fact that for about two hours, you form a bond with strangers who are hopefully enjoying the movie or learning something from it.

The movie, directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, stars Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, and Gael Garcia Bernal. The story is about "a chain of events that will link an American tourist couple's frantic struggle to survive, two Moroccan boys involved in an accidental crime, a nanny illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children, and a Japanese teen rebel whose father is sought by the police in Tokyo."

Here's to wishful thinking!
