Re: In Tune With Phil Spector

The actors and subject don't grab me, but I will watch most anything written and directed by David Mamet.

Mabuse, Der Spieler pt.1
I'm a Fritz Lang fan. This is interesting, but too slow.

Re: Last Film You Watched

Well, it was gonna be Winter's Bone , but the $5 BRD wouldn't play the feature. :cry: So, Rowing With The Wind , 1988 Hugh Grant is barely adequate as Byron, but the girls are swell. Good bio-pic, not terribly accurate, but they got the characteizations right. The 'alter ego' twist of the Creature i...

Re: Last Book You Read

I was reading David McCullough John Adams( really poorly written, though well researched, I guess) when I noticed that this bio mainly consisted of long quotations from The Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, so I switched over to that and am enjoying the hell out of it.

Re: Last Book You Read

A better novel than a film, imo; less stylized and campy.

Re: Last Book You Read

Been too busy to read much. As part of my Mary Shelley Meets Frankenstein's Daughter project, I finally plowed through Frankenstein , 1816 ed. If PB Shelley polished up the prose here as alleged, he did a poor job, imo. Also a swell biography, Mary Shelley by Miranda Seymor . * The Great Gatsby , Th...

Re: Last Book You Read

I enjoyed Pillars.... Haven't read the sequel. I did not care for the TV adaptaion at all; Swingen was silly as the evil cleric.
ot I'm slowly reading Great Expectations. I like many of its adaptations, though none are truly faithful to the story.

AC/DC Back In Black
This band has saved me a lot of money over the decades; whenever they release a new album, I just play this instead. The new one usually sounds just like it anyway. :D

Re: Last Film You Watched

Water For Elephants made it to HBO. Pleasant,old fashioned 'dark circus' film, much influenced by the wonderful Carnivale series of fond memory. Robert Pattinson was fine, as he was in Remembe Me . Reese Witherspoon, miscast, was merely adequate. I have never, either in Thailand or the USA, seen a ...
