Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

Good chance you will enjoy it if that is what you are looking for. I thought it was pretty bad yet still an enjoyable rent. Even better if you have the blu ray.

Very cool. He seems like an interesting guy.

I just picked up American Gods for the library a few days ago and look forward to it.

If you thought it looked awful, you probably won't like it. I liked the visual aspects and the campiness. The story was convoluted. It wasn't a great movie, but I enjoyed it.

I finished reading King Lear yesterday. It was incredible, and I can't wait to know it more thoroughly. It's definitely my favorite Shakespeare (out of Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, Taming of the Shrew, Much Ado About Nothing, Henry V, and Hamlet -- although I need to go over Hamlet again due to age). As for one adaptation, I've seen A Thousand Acres, but did not care it. It looked like every Iowan male is a selfish, cruel, oppressor of women in their hick farms. It was bordering ridiculous. And now I know how tragic Lear is, whereas in Acres, "he" is despicable.

But . . . next up is Kurosawa's Ran. I'll watch that maybe tonight but probably more likely next two days. Definitely looking forward to it.

I wrote a nice paper about the role of vision in King Lear. It IS an incredible play.

As in Gloucestor finally "seeing" the truth about his sons only after becoming literally blind? Nice touch, William. I also definitely liked the storm's significance, how nature raged on while Lear's own feelings raged. I think there was a line that directly pointed out the metaphor. But Shakespeare doesn't bury you with it, it feels entirely comfortable and right.

More than just see the truth regarding his sons though, he sees that Cordelia loved him all along, and he sees that his sorrows were brought about because of his prior inability to really see things (despite having physical sight then). Glouchester, too, suffers from this lack of "insight." When Glouchester says that "I have no way and therefore want no eyes; I stumbled when I saw," well, that just encapsulates the whole tragedy right there. The Fool, for his part, tries to hint at the importance of really seeing things. I could throw out a bunch of choice quotes that suggest that vision is operating in a complex way in the play even before the central irony of true-sight-after-loss-of-sight is introduced.

I don't know if this has ever been listed but I saw this tonight.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0972883/ "Red"



"An older, reclusive man's best friend and inspiration for living is his 14-year-old dog named "Red". When three troublesome teens kill the dog for no good reason, the grieving man sets out for justice and redemption by whatever means available to him."

I really enjoyed it. As for one who adores animals I could feel for the old guy. I felt myself entrenched with sympathetic feelings from the start and throughout the movie. I thought Brian Cox gave a good performance along with the supporting cast.

Recommended!!!

Have either of you (or anyone else) seen the British mini-series based on Gaiman's "Neverwhere"? I have it, but I haven't gotten around to watching it yet. I don't know how it can do justice to the book and I'm afraid it's going to be a kind of hokey. I'm sure it's pretty low budget.

Dogtown and Z-Boys - This documentary about the new wave of skateboarding in the 70's may have already been discussed, but I just watched it and thought it was a pretty good story.

Quote:
A new style of skateboarding emerged in the 1970s -- showcasing moves borrowed from famous surfers -- and with it, a skating culture was born. Legendary skateboarder Stacy Peralta (Riding Giants) directed this fast-paced, award-winning documentary that focuses on the Z-Boys of Venice Beach, Calif. This innovative group of guys became legends in the sport, and the depth of their influence is felt in a variety of sports -- and society -- today.

That does look cool. That said, I think we're rolling in to an entire genre of "get off my lawn"-geezer revenge films.

No, I haven't seen any of that miniseries. What year did it originally air?

That documentary is a whole lot better than the film "Lords of Dogtown."

You can watch it streaming on netflix if you have an account there. I tried to watch it, but as you correctly alluded to, it's very Dr. Who-ish as far as the level of watchablity.
