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!!

Sounds like you need to cap off the evening with Red Heat.

Now just jamming with "Book of Invasions".
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).

Ender's Game

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.

I should read that book. Should I read it before or after seeing the movie?

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.

Who is John Gault?

I am, you are. The question is, what do you do with that knowledge.

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.

Has anybody seen "John Dies At The End"? Is it worth it?

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.

Superbad was okay. Pineapple Express was better.

Really? I thought Pineapple Express was really, really terrible. When I got to the end of it I said, "If that's the state of modern comedy, then film is truly dead."

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.
