The last few posts have been kind of angry, so here’s something a bit more positive.
I’ve been renting a lot of movies over the hiatus, and these are some of the ones that I’ve really enjoyed:
Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill – Cutest birdies ever!
Chappelle’s Show – Season two was way better than season one, but they were both funny as hell.
The Towering Inferno – Best disaster movie ever, and especially amazing when you consider that there were no digital effects back then.
Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room – It’s not often that a movie pisses me off so much that I throw things at the television. I remember those blackouts. It was boiling hot and we were working on a TV show that was shooting at the Culver lot. We had to rent a generator and run cable because lot management couldn’t tell us if we were going to lose power, or how much warning we’d have if it did go out. Did I mention that it was boiling hot and when the stage power went out, so did the air conditioners?
Airport 77 – Second best disaster movie ever, but it scared me more than Towering Inferno – my dislike of flying is well-documented and watching this didn’t help one bit.
And a photo:
In front of the Kodak Theater – this is the red carpet madness of American Idol. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person in the country who doesn’t care about this TV show.
