    What a sorry line-up. I’m not going out for any of them. I saw Teenage Fanclub last night for the price of a movie ticket and it was eons more fantastic. The rest of the weekend is about the Cubs. I’ll Dr. Strange next week but it’s been a meh October for movies.

  2. Greg says:

    What a great October:
    Train to Busan–probably the best movie I’ll see this year–incredibly well done
    Phantasm: Remastered
    Christine (which was my favorite movie at TIFF)
    Girl on the Train which I really connected with her character and her redemption-I saw it twice.
    Under the Shadow
    LOVED, LOVED The Accountant–fantastic, my preconceived notions were blown away
    Jack Reacher 2 was an enjoyable second tier action movie.

    I will never understand people…I get joy just from going to see a movie, good or bad. Its about the escape.

    Opinions vary, Greg, I’m excited for Under the Shadow but it’s not playing where I live. I’ve seen Phantasm 100 times but again, if it played in Chicago I didn’t know enough ahead of time to roll into the city. The other stuff I had no real interest in or will see on dvd.

    It’ll get better. Very excited for Moonlight and a lot of other stuff in the next few months. My interest is just elsewhere right now and that’s not a bad thing.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
