    So this right here is why you don't blind buy Elvis movies. I saw that IHATWF had a Blu Ray version on Amazon and I figured it was can't miss. It fell within the time frame of my favorite Elvis film Viva Las Vegas, it was directed by Norman Taurog who directed 2 of my other faves Blue Hawaii and Spinout, and it was on BLU. The only other film from this era I've found that gave me those sweet…

    Do you ever think about the click track of your mind? Old trails burned into your psyche. Trails easily fit back into, even decades later. Imagine these dirt trails grooved into time itself, inevitable crevices humanity burrows itself into...unknowingly...for eternity. Future humans excavate and endlessly record over these tracks, but it all ends up the same song and dance in the end. Does "Independence" mean anything anymore? Well it did to me once, in August of 1994.

    There's a song…

    *Viewed at the Trylon Cinema in Minneapolis as part of their Summer of Nic Cage “National Treasure” series. 

    What a beautifully rainy Noir-ish evening to watch Dennis Hopper and his years past the expiration date Frank Booth haircut pass the scepter of wickedness and lunacy onto a 29 year old Nic Cage! 

    When I picture old Dennis up in Heaven, this is the version of him that I see - a 1970s jet black boat tail Riviera eternally racing a train…

    An inebriated Colin Trevorrow fumbles mightily with his soiled, battered copy of Roger Dodger as he works the ancient buttons of his very first college big boy DVD player. Roger Dodger had served as his dating encyclopedia while he attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts as a young squire about the city. Colin Trevorrow hadn’t been on a pub crawl in quite some time since he’s a happily married father of 2…yet something deep inside of him yearned for…

    You can look at this film in two ways:
     A pseudo-indie film experiment which imploded under the weight of its slumming superstar cast....
    Or you can look at it as a kick ass slow burn neo-western in which James Mangold slyly subverts and toys with the underdog Rocky persona...and then eventually celebrates the vengeful forgotten man persona of Rambo.

    It would have been really interesting to see how this film would have…

    Oblivion is a film you may or may not remember from about 7-8 years ago. Tom Cruise is in it playing a man on a post-apocalyptic Earth. There isn’t much to know about the plot other than Cruise bombs around in a cool looking spaceship (and sometimes a futuristic motorbike) looking for damaged drones to repair. He has a partner in a high tower that helps him find these things, and in between missions he finds tchotchkes from “old Earth”…
