Quote of the day

"if Superman is such a paragon, how come he wants to save a species so universally dumb that not a single member of it recognizes him when he puts on a pair of glasses?" -ANTHONY LANE

Now I'm not one to ever be turned off by the bitting whit of the uber-sarcastic... but the review attached to this quote is almost as singularly focused on entertaining as the movie it has chosen to abuse. Still, both are worth the time for what they do best. And enjoy them and did.
PS- The fun of Superman Returns in 3D almost makes up for the melodrama it falls victim to.

House on Telegraph Hill

Beautiful, odd, and oh, so SF!

Typically considered Film Noir- this film is at the butt end of the genre.
Women in jeopardy is apparently more accurate.
Anyway you slice it though, it is SO much fun to watch now that I am living in this delightful city.

I cannot wait until to see the rest of the movies made in my new home....
any guesses how long it will take me to burn out?

No women, no kids. That's the rules.

So upon rewatching Leon, I have come to the startling conclusion that this may in fact be my favorite movie of all time.

How that happened, I can not say.
But alas it is true.

Sometimes the strangest things happen and we are not entirely irresponsible for these things...
It occurs to me that not everyone would be able to truly enjoy the subtle nuances of the relationships in this movie, the humor, and the simple pleasures of being a human being played out to Beethoven.

Picking out favorite movies is a bit like picking out significant others.
It's so often a crap shoot, a moment when you desperately in love with some part of something and forget everything else. But it isn't always true.
Most times the initial feeling fades and your left with nothing.
You feel silly, cheap, as if you gave something precious away.
You must live with the claim that this was the best, the one, the only.

Any favorites list is like this, whether it be music or books or movies. It is difficult and tragically final. By naming one you leave all others behind.

This is what it is for me, now in this moment I must ignore my love for all other movies.
At the moment, this is an easy task, for I have found true love...
