Season 5 already? I like this show, and you will too if you enjoy fantastical adventures of a Hollywood star and his gang, filled with camaraderie and bonhomie. My wife asked why I like Entourage and the explanation is it’s the best example of friends ripping on each other on TV.
Remember the squirmy awkwardness you had from watching the UK Office? You’ll get that again with the first season of Extras. The second season, with its mocking of the instant celebrity culture, could be Ricky Gervais’ response to fame.
I listened to The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao while riding my bike too and from work and so didn’t notice the extensive use of footnotes by DÃaz. Oscar Wao’s greatness is not in the story, but in the fantastic and interesting narrative that featured multiple narrators (confusing to follow at first). There were several sci-fi/fantasy/comic/anime references if that’s your thing.
Cory Branan, a singer from Memphis (now living in Austin), sung about in a Lucero song, is a compelling stage presence. Dustying up his voice to better suit the narration of the song and playing the shit out of his acoustic guitar, Branan is a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll. There weren’t too many people there, but those who were had a good time.
Maybe it was me (or my ability to like crappy movies, rather), but I really enjoyed this Iron Man. Excellent pacing, casting, acting, story, action… Watch it.
It was terrible weather for a cruise around Boston Harbor, but Lucero is one of my favorite bands and I was on a boat with several of my friends. The sound wasn’t so good, but Lucero is one of my favorite bands and I was on the boat with several of my friends. You couldn’t see the band at all, but Lucero is one of my favorite bands and I was on the boat with several of my friends.
WALLÂ·E was great and I’m glad I saw it on the big screen. Again, this was a case where I had sky high expectations that were not met, but being disappointed by movies like WALLÂ·E and The Dark Knight is preferable any day to having my love of visual media shaken to its core by drivel like Reservation Road. Endearing in its cuteness, cutting in its editorializing.
I took a long break after watching Season 1 of Deadwood, and I made up for it by burning through Seasons 2 and 3 in a week. Season 3 definitely ended with some untied loose ends, but not in a cliffhanger, making the show’s cancellation a LITTLE easier to take. I end up cursing creatively and excessively for 2 weeks after watching Deadwood.
I can’t help but be disappointed by a movie that garnered as much hype as The Dark Knight did. This movie was great and I can’t wait to see it again, actually, but neither the movie, in general, or Heath Ledger, specifically, lived up to the my incredibly and irrationally high expectations. Sitting in the 2nd row of the theater couldn’t have helped, either.
I spent about 90 minutes watching this movie and waiting for it to be over because it’s mostly about hardcore from the early 80s that I don’t like too much. Then, I decided to check out the special features and spent another 50 minutes riveted by the extra interviews. The special features raised this movie from 2 stars to 4 stars.
