I meant White Nights. Found a torrent of it but it took some effort because of the mis-spelling. I'd forgotten about the opening ballet scene. Barishnyokov was great and it's one of Hine's best films.

Miss that guy....he was too young to go.

Does he dance with Barishnyokov ?
iirc, Hines was pretty bad-ass soft shoe (or was it tap?)

Hines played a tap-dancer who defected to Russia. He has a killer routine in his first scene. But, no they don't dance together IIRC, I'm half through the movie and there MIGHT be some sort of small scene.

"Rubles!"

later: yes, they did. It was a scene for the benefit of the spying Soviet agent and it looked like they came up with a "jazz-pop" routine that they could somehow do together. Still pretty good for an 80s flick.

Now to watch "Moscow On the Hudson". Coffee coffee coffee coffee coffee coffee coffee!!

A Man and a Woman (1966)


Very mellow and very French is what I got out of it.
Also a surprising amount of race car footage for an artsy film. (It's "the man's" occupation).

How was it? Did they trash the novel?

I thought they were going to trash it, but it was surprisingly good. They rushed through it a bit, but were able to include a lot of the book.

Actually I forget what is in Ender's Game and what was added in Ender's Shadow so I felt like they left out quite a bit when they actually may not have.

From the dialog in the trailer that I've seen, I got the impression that they might have killed major points of the story, such as Ender not knowing that he wasn't playing a game.

It's well worth a read anyway. If you read it first, you might understand some things in the movie better, perhaps.

He thought it was a game and that he was playing against Mazer. Only after he used the little doctor on the planet did he realize it was real.

They really did a good job of keeping true to the book.

Brave.

Ok, I like Disney movies, and this is better than the some that have been out in the last 10 or so years. Humor, sarcasm, a teen girl who is so stereotypical it's funny. I like how they made her grow.

Red Lights - It was on Netflix. I'd never heard of it before. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad, either.

Yes. Yes.

David Cronenburg does Bill & Ted. Or maybe Dario Argento's Harold and Kumar. Generation Z's version of The Evil Dead, and probably as close as they'll get to The White Album. Definitely a drug-inspired movie. And although in the end, I'd still call it cheezy, parts of it are really brilliant. I laughed, I cried, I kissed three bucks goodbye.

EDIT: naw, just kidding. I watched it on Netflix.

Napoleon Dynamite.

It's been a while since a movie did such a good job putting me to sleep. I do know that when I checked how long the movie had been on, I was ~21 minutes into it. I don't know how much further I made it, but I don't remember much after that.

I do know that I woke up about four hours later, pretty well rested, so I guess there's that.

Paralax View a 1974 movie with Warren Beatty. It was supposed to be a taut, political thriller. I found it neither taut nor thrilling. Well acted, though.

I saw Superbad and Pineapple Express back-to-back.

That is what I think every time I see another Will Farrell "comedy" promoted. That guy wouldn't know funny if it bit him on the ass.
