Breaking Bad: an oldie but a goodie. http://www.memphisflyer.com/memphis/breaki…
Haven't heard of it. What's it about?
This is good, but when are you going to review (and watch) Breaking Bad?
I may have to go see it if that's the way the scene goes down. I can't imagine going through an abortion even from the male perspective, much less the female perspective.
Speaking of Seth Rogen movies, I love that he and James Franco are now terrorists according to North Korea and Kim Jong-Un.
Good point, GroveReb84. However, everybody else who'd written about the movie was calling it an "abortion comedy", so I left it alone and went looking for other things to talk about.
But the long conversation Donna and Nellie have about abortion is one of OBVIOUS CHILD's best scenes--certainly more straightforward and open about what it would be like to get one and recover from one than any even remotely similar conversation I've seen in American feature films. (Compared to something like KNOCKED UP, it's incredibly honest.)
And on a totally unrelated note, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is pretty good.
Surprised there was no mention of the abortion storyline.
That's a bit of a key part to the story I would think, or at least it's going to be a big part of why this film is talked about.
Personally, though I'm pro choice, the idea of abortion still upsets me, so I'm not sure if I'll be going to see this one.
i was very happy to read your very articulate and accurate article on Shawn Lane. I was not fortunate enough to have known him in person but feel I am very close to him through his inimitable music. He is the reason I picked up the guitar again after 40 years. I heard his music one day on Pandora while listening to my Eric Johnson channel. I sat there in stunned silence at what I heard. How had I missed hearing the most amazingly talented guitarist up until now? It was really the music I had always been waiting to hear. Thank you so much for saying what I am thinking.
Thank you Paul!!!
The lane family loves you!!
must be a slow news week
That's a good question; those are the kinds of movies I could address or tackle (at least partially) in the weekly summer film journal, actually. Nothing springs immediately to mind except Kelly Reichardt's NIGHT MOVES (which may show up in Memphis) and Tsui Hark's YOUNG DETECTIVE DEE, which I saw at a film festival in the spring and then saw on DVD at a branch library. So it's out there, and if you don't mind tons of sub-Hollywood CGI, it's really weird and fun. But I'll ask G. Akers and see if he has a list of what's shown up and what hasn't.
Addison – Because Memphis lacks a full time serious arthouse cinema (The Studio in Midtown targets only mainstream Hollywood fare and The Ridgeway shows only prestige films more targeted to an older female white demographic - that’s the reality of the local market) we loose out on any heavy weight or foreign films (particularly during the summer) , what are the top 10 or 15 films without Memphis play dates that deserve to be shown here??
Check out the audible at 1:42: Strong.
Why no mention of "Playing for Change" at the Shell?
Thank you, Eli. I appreciate your participation. Let me know what I can do better or how you think you could improve what we do. firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, hell, have at it here. I've been a disgruntled reader and still am. Feedback is helpful. Thanks again.
I believe that the Goner event on Beale takes place Friday.
