Hey!

   I'm watching WNET Thirteen channel 13 (NYC) Currently showing "Soundtrack of The Century"

I've seen this before but not every episodes. Excellent documentary about popular music since the turn of the last Century.

   If this interested you turn to that channel now or check your local listing for time and rerun.

Call me jaded but I didn't think Eastern Promises was hittin on jacks***.  Just when it got interesting, it went flat.  Maybe I was expecting too much.   Stylistically- I was expecting more- it was fine.  But just to compare, I whipped out Collateral by Micheal Mann.  This movie has a dumb premise but it is a beautiful thing to watch.  Color saturation and definition are top shelf.  Speaking of MM, a nice touch he used in Miami Vice (dismal) was when the FBI informants were shot in the beginning, rather than having the bullets penetrating the windshield and the little blood things exploding in the actors' shirts, the camera was in the back seat where the seat backs were being blown out by thru and thrus.  The terror was more effective on me than the former would have been.  I admire directors that leave something to the imagination.  Going back to the director of EP, somebody needs to tell me why critics think the director, David Croneberg, is so cool.  Last year's History of Violence was more of the same, an old story with new wrappings and Crash (before the studios became interested in this cat) was a movie for the hipper than thou and, sure nuff, became a cult hit.  Predictable, in my opinion.  For drama, The Coen Bros are in a class by themselves.  Pardon the rant.

Just finished Lonely Hearts that was a good but messed up show.

Saw Bourne Ultimatum couple days ago and agree it was very good.  I didn't expect it from a triquel. 

Saw Hot Rod last night, thought it was be at least stupid humor funny....not even that.  It was painful to watch it was so dumb and didn't it come close to humor of any sort.  I don't think a 13 year old boy would think it was funny.

Just finished watching this on FilmHD(Zoom HD channel)...an amazing mind trip...great cinematography and a soundtrack by Philip Glass that fits like a well worn glove...
I have seen bits and pieces of this here and there throughout the years, but this time I sat down and watched the whole thing from beginning to end. Now I want to see the other two parts of the Trilogy from this docu-film-maker.

Cable (in the background).  "The Hot Spot".  John Lee and Miles collaborating in the background music.  Probably an overdub but those cats could make great music anyway.  And Jennifer Connelly is painfully pretty!  Don Johnson can actually act, you know.  In this and that flick where he played an LA county sheriff tracking down some race killers.  Dude driving a '57 Golden Hawk.  Trippin me out.

One of my favs from art school.  Shockingly beautiful and so poignant!

Have been watching the Battlestar Galactica series. I like it! Only heard of it a few weeks ago. Will be finished with the first 2 seasons in a couple days, then apparently have to wait until late March for dvd's of season 3 to come out. Then I guess season 4 starts in April? Anyway, I like the cgi and several characters are pretty good.

Oh yay, just remembered, a local coffee shop used the Koyaanisqatsi imagery on a t-shirt reading: Sconeandacoffee.
