I did "Let it Go" with one of my after-school clubs. Not a bad song, but I am sick to bloody death of it now. . .

I watched both the season premiere of Defiance and series premiere of Dominion on Syfy last night.

Both are a good deal more impressive that that channel's usual offering.

We watched Ender's Game over the weekend. Serviceable, not a bad take on the novel, and in some ways considerably less objectionable than the book. Somehow, the film gives us more of Ender's interior than the novel did, which surprised me.

The Attack, a 2012 movie about the Israel and an Arab doctor. Heartbreaking. Subtitles.

Oh boy it's a Studio Ghibli weekend!

The AFI Silver Theater up in Silver Spring is having a retrospective. This evening, HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE (my own favorite) and tomorrow morning (love going to movies on Saturday morning), SPIRITED AWAY.

Reason #17 I miss DC - while the Museum of Fine Arts Houston film programs try, it can't hold a candle to the AFI.

Taxes should fund old theatres. Bring back culture with the heavy hand of the state.

We've got a pretty nifty little Art Theater in town.

Called...um...The Art Theater.

Point noted. I've been there a handful of times in the last decade.

Which is peachy until the state decides what you can and cannot show in the theater they funded.

Loved the AFI Silver - four or five times a year for new or revival films. Last thing I got to see before my relocation was RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK on the big screen again, if memory serves.
