If you have not seen Juno yet, I am jealous. (And I would strongly recommend you go rent it before reading this review.) It is a cinematic experience unlike any other. It is normally difficult for me to relate to movie characters on a personal level. Television seems to do a better job, but outside of How I Met Your Mother's Ted Mosby nothing has really ever come close. That is, until I watched Juno.

In fact Juno has the double bonus of portraying me as the geeky teen Bleeker, with his super spunk, and the adult rocker-wannabe Mark (Jason Bateman) with his giant collection of punk music and bad horror movies. This isn't to say my main attraction to this indie is my ability to relate to these two actors. Rather, this is just indicative of how character driven Juno is. The emotions and thoughts unfold in a very intense way. And you really don't have time to catch your breath until it is over.

And then you'll watch it again.

You're like Ted? Better than Marshall. Or Barney.

I've got Juno in my Netflix queue (although I don't think it's actually released until next month). I can't wait to see it, I'm a big Michael Cera fan since Arrested Development.

Amber, it did win an Oscar for Best Screenplay!! That made me happy. I plan on watching it again, and posting some cool screencaps. (Can we call Juno a cult classic, even though it is less than a year old?)

LA, I think you will really enjoy Juno.

Thanks, Diane!!
