The “Rewatchables”

Posted by Eric (April 27, 2007 at 2:56 pm)

Watching moviesLast Friday I got together with a group of guys to watch Reservoir Dogs, one of my favorite movies. Most of us had seen it before, several of us many times, and it was a blast—all those great lines from Mr. Blonde (“regular job, job-type job”; “you gonna bark all day little doggie—or are you gonna bite?” etc.). It’s arguably the perfect movie—not a scene, a line, a camera angle out of place.

Reservoir Dogs is one of those movies that I can watch over and over and over again—one of the “rewatchables.”

But It’s My Right! Ron Says So!

Mona Lisa, 3 eyesWe’ve got a new frontrunner for the Stupidest Thing I’ve Read This Year Award (previously held by “Spiritually, the guitar is the bedfellow of the kazoo”). Here’s The Da Vinci Code director Ron Howard (via Barbara Nicolosi):

To deny the right to see the film is a fascist act.

My wife April’s reply to this this weird statement: “Who’s trying to deny anyone the right to see The Da Vinci Code?”

My answer: “The guy at the ticket booth, if you don’t fork over your eight bucks. I guess he’s a fascist.”

Now I have a “right” to see The Da Vinci Code. You can toss it in the bucket with the other new rights that I’ve been hearing about lately, such as my right to pay less for car insurance, to have a full head of thick, luxurious hair and to earn a six figure income from my living room whilest wearing my pajamas.

Not to mention Ron Howard’s right to be a complete idiot.

BTW, Barbara Nicolosi, one of those smart-guy Catholics I was talking about the other day—and a real hoot in the bargain—is Da Vinci blogging at Church of the Masses. Also worth a visit:

I Don’t Watch TV . . .

Posted by Eric (February 23, 2006 at 12:45 pm)

24. . . but I do watch TV shows*. That is to say, I watch a few shows on DVD. At the risk of scandalizing more pious readers, I’ll admit that two of our favorite shows are The Sopranos and Curb Your Enthusiasm. We checked out Six Feet Under, but found it tedious. Last Fall we got into Lost. Our latest discovery is 24.

Before I go on, a warning. First, don’t follow any of the links above if you haven’t already seen all the episodes of any of those show and there’s any chance you’ll want to watch them. Network sites abound with spoilers. Second, spoilers on 24 will follow. (more…)

Brokeback, Indeed

Posted by Eric (February 15, 2006 at 6:17 pm)

Manuel and HarveyThis past Sunday, the family watched Captains Courageous, the classic movie starring Spencer Tracy as the Portuguese fisherman Manuel Fidello, who takes the outrageous brat Harvey Cheyne (Freddie Bartholomew) under his wing after fishing him out of the sea when he fell overboard on a cruise with his tycoon father. It’s a film about what it means to be a man—a film that could scarcely be made today, when we’ve lost that meaning. (Witness Brokeback Mountain.) (more…)
