Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Not my kind of movie at all, but the soundtrack was what made it watchable.

I still want to see this.
Dogma (1999)

Not as good as I'd been led to believe. Easy targets, obvious jokes. Jay wasn't funny at all. Linda Fiorentino seemed entirely out of place. A movie for rude adolescents that looks like it was scripted by rude adolescents.

The Prophecy (1995) with Christopher Walken was far more entertaining and even funnier when it wanted to be.

I felt like the characters in Dogma weren't really acting, they were just spouting words that Kevin Smith wrote. A lot of it was like someone trying to act a blog. An angry blog.

Other than that, I liked the movie, but I still don't understand why people's heads didn't explode when God said "Beep."

Basically why I don't like early Kevin Smith movies.

It wasn't a word (or rather, Word), it was baby talk.
Yeah. That's the plot hole.
The Bad Seed (1956) Genuinely creepy adaptation of the novel, but with a different ending.

Didn't care for that one at all--and "characters in Dogma weren't really acting, they were just spouting words that Kevin Smith wrote. " is exactly right.

i have no problem with religious critique, but this was really shallow, college freshman conspiracy dope stuff.

If I remember correctly it was that your head would explode (or whatever) if you heard the voice of God, it never said it had to be a word. And "beep" is a word.

I watched Guardians Of The Galaxy last night. It was a lot of fun, not nearly as child centric as I expected. Clearly the director was a big fan of the movie Heavy Metal.

Ok, that's really a thing. You actually have a moog theremin? and you can play it? that's awesome, but I don't believe you :p .

And it's Woodstock, you should play along with a guitar, acoustic or electric, any kind is ok.

I've got two of them. Moog Music is just down the road from me. My Pro is valuable so it tends to stay put away. The Big Briar is small and easy to set up, so I fool around with it more.

So you have a theremin, that's cool. I do believe you, but I think we all want to see video of you playing the Star Trek theme music. :D

The Interview

Not very good at all. I thought the concept behind the plot was good, and the first 10 minutes were actually fairly promising, but it went downhill. Is James Franco always so unappealing? I know his character is supposed to be unappealing , but I didn't find him likable in Freaks and Geeks either.
The Ides Of March (2011)

Respectable political intrigue drama with Gosling, Clooney and PS Hoffman, and Tomei. Directed an co-written by Clooney.

Even Hollywood, dripping with Democrat sympathies, cannot resist revealing their own side as squalid graspers.

Makes for good watching.

Having performed on stage with a Theramin, I can say that it is a terrible, terrible instrument unless it is in the hands of a master. The best place for a Theramin, IMO, is at the bottom of a river. To hear what a Theramin is supposed to sound like, and to hear its true potential, check out Clara Rockmore. Ho-ly human waste!!

And it's not a Theramin on the Star Trek Theme, it's a soprano named Loulie Jean Norman.

Yep.

My esteem of Jimmy Page went down a number of pegs once I saw him live (with the Firm).

His Theramin segment was even worse than the violin bow noise segment.
