Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Grand Budapest Hotel, expert movie making. Anderson has a keen eye. He paints vistas with his camera. No doubt about it...my favorite director these days. He clearly understands the human heart and the child in all of us. THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL was soulful and playful and earthy and surprising on...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Come on, tell me you weren't irritated when they pulling the camera away every time the monsters were about to clash? Not once, but something like three times? Hey Steve, no, I wasn't irritated in the least. I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm not saying I'm right. That's not what it's about. I'm sayi...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Steve Evil, I dunno, man. Actors examining his footprints...that's what they did in the first one. I like Gojira because of its approach. It takes its time. They keep the beast out of sight until the middle. You only hear it. That and it's allegory, using an Oppenheimer character, makes the origina...

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Ah, but Lucas hasn't made them better over time! He largely just ruined the aesthetic with distracting, gratuitous visuals. So true with THX 1138. I loved the stark quality of the original, as it was released in 1971, and I was very disappointed with the longer re-edit and added CGI scenes Lucas ap...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

We saw the new Godzilla flick the other day. Liked it. I'm not going to convince anybody it was a "great film". However, the people involved clearly took the project seriously, and as big (emphasis on BIG) as the special effects were, they were only taken as far as necessary to convey that...

Re: Whatcha listening to?

Silver, no way, give us more? Hey Frank...more about JJ Cale? Darn, where do I begin...? Cale died last summer at 74, a heart attack, most likely the result of a lifetime of smoking. He was, I have no doubt, the most influential "unknown" guitarist and song writer of the past 60 years. Ju...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Is that the road past Pacifica? I love it there. Hey Rick, no, the Great Highway is the fast drag (seriously, we ran drag races there when I was a teenager) that runs straight and narrow north and south along the edge of Ocean Beach within San Francisco itself. At the north end you start at the Cli...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

I'm enjoying it all because I remember where I was and what I was doing this time last year. Oh, yes, I remember EXACTLY where I was and what I was doing on this very day, February 10th, late in the afternoon, a year ago. I was sitting on my mom's bed, slowly feeding her wedges of navel orange, whi...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Robert, I did something similar in my teaching of high school earth science and biology years ago. I taught those subjects by way of an historical review. It was controversial, and I took some grief from administrators and other teachers. But nobody could deny...the kids GOT it. Put science in an hi...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

~ahem~ Rainy much in Cali? We've got urban flooding here in San Francisco. The Great Highway (runs along the farthest west edge of the City, just off the coast...wave to the Pacific as you drive by) is closed indefinitely until they clean up the mess. The main drive through Golden Gate Park is also...
