Jon Whitney introduced me to the Midwest Grill, otherwise known as the “Parade of Meat”. What a wonderful place, a simple $19 gets you a never ending cavalcade of various meat products brought to your table on swords, from which you choose what you would like and they shave off a bit for you… We tried to catch Memento at the Kendall Cinema after food, but we just missed the show.
This CD is awesome, and on top of that, it has me dying to see some of these movies again. I haven’t really been watching many horror (other than the Brattle’s recent Italian Horror Series) movies of late (probably because I saw too many of them in my youth).
It looks like I am going with friends to see Final Fantasy this evening after all. I am the odd man out, since I seem to be the only geek on the planet who isn’t all hot and bothered by this film. Perhaps it is because I never got into the video games, but I think the problem is deeper.. See, there was a ton of hype, clips, and stills released during the production of this film that made the film look very photo realistic, especially in the character animation. Unfortunately, all of the trailer material I have seen has looked firmly cartoonish.. We will see I guess, but if the animation doesn’t blow me over, I don’t expect much from a film made by a video game company.
