Holy cow. If you want to read some droll Internet commentary, scroll down to the Reasonable Discussion section of any given film review on The A.V. Club, such as for the anti-abortion film October Baby. Each one another Oscar Wilde. 😛
Characters in movies never drive on the Interstates. They always take the scenic routes.
I’ve always viewed choosing a font to be a brief formality before I type up a document or start a website.
Here’s a rundown of some books I’ve read lately, besides “Moneyball”, all worthwhile as well:
Having had an opinion on “Moneyball” the movie, I checked out “Moneyball” the book by Michael Lewis.
Detroit and Texas were rained out tonight so we saw a movie about baseball instead.
“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” is like a dark Scandinavian “Punky Brewster” for our pessimistic times.
The original “Planet of the Apes” movie has perhaps the most spoiled movie plot on… the future Planet of the Apes.
Cool stuff in “The Fast Runner”, an Inuktitut-language Canadian film about an Eskimo legend, includes igloos, sealskin clothing, dog sleds, and the complete absence of anything green.
Hanging upside-down in an ice cave must be a metaphor for something but I don’t know what.
I feel derelict if I don’t share this video with people at least once a year.
WarGames was on my list of top films for a while. Then I dropped it and now I’m wondering why.
“Exit Through the Gift Shop” was pretty provocative stuff. I wish they had pursued their point a little farther.
Who would win? Annie or Scarface?
“Falling Down” immediately got my attention with the opening scene. Who wouldn’t go nuts?
I’m going to watch all my top films again plus a few others and see just what they say about me. This might take a while.
I’ve read two reviews so far of “The Tree of Life”, both favorable, and I still don’t understand what it’s about.
The king’s peach wasn’t quite right and gave him diarrhea, but with help from a kindly Australian he was cured.
“The Fighter” was very good; “Despicable Me” was not so good.
We’ve heard a lot of good things about “The King’s Speech” so naturally we went to see “Cedar Rapids”.
