Here's one of the other films being featured tomorrow night:
Excellent review, Chris. Weaving an intensely personal story through a life of outdoors adventure sounds like a great combination to me. Can't wait to read this one.
You failed to mention, in 2001, HAL eliminates the crew to fulfill the mission. In Interstellar, Matt Damon is the logical human that tries to eliminate the crew to fulfill the mission.
I'm just a kid with a lot of problems and if I throw this brick maybe the brick will go and solve them!!
hell ya thats my family WILLARD
This actually makes me embarrassed considering I'm from the Big Sky state. Shame on you Missoula independent, for having such a clueless person covering this brand of music. Surely the town of Missoula has some more knowledgeable writers that would be more well versed.
Honestly, this article wasnt as objective as it SHOULD be. Bands should NOT be compared from one another....Although I live in IL, I live southern of the Mason-Dixon line and let me tell you that true southerns, like ANYWHERE else comes is all shapes, sizes and yes, even sounds...
Whoever wrote this doesn't know much more than I did at 16 about southern rock. Fucking idiot.
I agree with above. Sons of Bill has a much better sound than Drive-By Truckers. Terrible article and review. Do you listen to ANY other Southern rock bands besides Drive-By Truckers??? Curious.....
Love and Logic is Sons of Bill's fourth record, not second. Perhaps you should look beyond Drive-By Truckers for what it means to be Southern. You purport that being Southern is tantamount to being offensive, a claim which I find, for lack of a better word, offensive.
I too had the privilege of being a student of Dr Freedman.
MoMa trip was a great college memory...my first trip to NYC. Dr Freedman inspired me. I'm an art teacher now and going to grad school for art ed. Thank you Dr Freedman. Cat Coughlin
re: Cabin in the Woods
It's a parody!
Well that's just like your opinion man.
Brea really approaches that non-dualistic in-between place. I love her for that! Jon Austin
While some of the film was a stretch, a tiger vs. a Sherman, and the battle at the crossroads. I don't believe you and others understand the point the film was trying to convey by use of the two other scenes you mention and the other scenes you omitted in your review.
This commentary gives a critical look at the Judge, but there are its moments.
Loved your review. Here's mine. A different slant. http://moviesandfilm.blogspot.com/2014/08/review-most-wanted-man_4.html
My problem with it is that I happen to know Flynn lifted it almost in toto from Joyce Carol Oates's recent novel Carthage. Even the town/city is the same. We have changed identities, missing girl, man blamed only Oates put him in prison and writes a far better novel. Guess Flynn hasn't studied her "influence" enough - as she refers to Oates.
Add some more from Oates's The Grave Digger's Daughter and Mudwoman for 2 more and GG is rounded out. Reading it through tiqqun's Young Girl reveals deeper strata in both.Flynn wrote 10 years for Entertainment Weekly so what else is new. She liked it there too getting to see a lot of junk movies and get paid for writing about them.
Time to read more David Foster Wallace. I've been saving some because when I'm finished with what I have there aren't going to be any more. Aspartame killed him you know. Don't take anything with that stuff in it if you are depressed.Depressed is a clinical term I hate. I prefer melancholy.
Should have made Oates novel into the film but no one seems to read good writers anymore since only YA sells big. Oh well.
author, you are an idiot
John would be very grateful and delighted with the work you're doing Tahj. Carry on. Hal Mathew from Salem
