CORRECTIONS

- If my senior year of Latin is correct, there's no such thing as "simulacrums" but "simulacra", right?

- Matty actually first used the 'hipster nostalgia porn' phrase in 2009 not 2008, in conjunction with the movie "Where the Wild Things Are." Surely it had to have appeared somewhere in the zeitgeist prior though.

NOTES / LINKS

Matt Singer/IFC.com

- Incidentally, I'm with Matt that the 'best' scene in "Super 8" is Elle Fanning's 'Audition' scene... My example is just a good one for why the movie really works for me.

- Massacre Theatre winner: Jennifer Ozawa
