Hoosiers-We all know how Bill loves it. It's classic. But as part of my 2-disc DVD set, I got....

1954 IHSAA basketball finals-Milan vs. Muncie Central-Grainy, black-and-white video with radio broadcast not completely in sync with the game itself. In other words, I loved it. It shows the difference between basketball of the 1950s and now (of course, Muncie ran the Antoine Walker offense, complete with one guy shooting 35-footers all night long). Is boring for a 4.5 minute mark in the fourth quarter, as Milan holds the ball to slow the game down. Ends with Bobby "Jimmy Chitwood" Plump of Milan hitting a 15-foot jumper to win the state title for the Indians. Even has bonus footage, showing the presentation of the runner-up trophy, runner-up individual awards, Trester Award for MVP of the Tournament (given to Plump), championship individual awards, and the championship to the Milan Indians. Also has '80s techno-rock music in the background during the bonus footage, which brings a smile to my face.

I watched The Rookie last night with my son. I told him it would have been far more inspirational if Jim Morris played for anyone but the Devil Rays. He said "yeah, but I'd have been rooting against him if he played for the Yankees". That's my boy!

Saw Kicking and Screaming on Friday night, based on my belief that Will Ferrell. Pretty good, reminded me ALOT of Little Giants. Probably too kiddy but it was entertaining and I didn't see a lot of better options in the theater, at least that my girlfriend would have seen.

I saw Kung Fu Hustle a couple of weeks ago. It was great! Stephen Chow starred - he's basically the new popular guy in that genre.

In terms of plot, basically a gang takes over the local city (the Axe Gang - they uses axes as their weapon of choice, duh). A small time crook (Chow) tries to get in and basically starts a war between the Axe Gang and this poor little village. However, the village is populated with former Shaolin Kung Fu masters. Crazy Kung Fu fighting ensues.

The cool thing is that they use a lot of CGI to take the fighting way over the top to make it campy/humorous. Obviously there's a Jackie Chan influence but it's a little bit different kind of humor.

I'd recommend it. Might be out of most theaters by now. He also did Shaolin Soccer which you should be able to find at your local video store.

If anyone's here a fan of Jackie Chan, I strongly suggest you check out Project A and Project A II. Fantastic kung fu movies.

I watched a documentary on Channel Z, an old Pay Cable TV station that changed the game and pushed HBO and Showtime into showing less well known films.

Also watched a documentary on Hitchcock, confirming that he was a complete fucking genius.

Watched some random documentary on THC (Da History Channel!) about La Cosa Nostra... REALLY eye opening.


Good stuff.

That thread is a perfect example of my conversation starting abilities. As a person that watches a large amount of movies, Crash is one of the better offerings to come out of Hollywood in recent memory. Check it out if you're headed to the theaters.

All the President's Men. Holds up surprisingly well. I had forgotten that once upon a time Robt Redford could actually act.

My pre-ordered copy of The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou came last tuesday. So I watched it for the first time since I saw it in the theater. Bill Murray.... yeah, he's a genius....

I saw the new Will Ferrell movie as well. Not bad but due to the rating they had to be careful with the humor, but Ferrell referring to Mike Ditka as juicebox and all of the little kids being shoved around by adults made the movie very entertaining.

i want to see that, i like wes anderson. im a big fan of rushmore. the only thing that i dont like is the same cast of characters for each movie. if you go back to bottle rocket through through life aquatic, some of the same people are in every movie. i find that to be annoying at times

I think that's the best part. I love how Wes Anderson used the same actors. P.T. Anderson does that too. So does Woody Allen and a number of other directors. Some directors just find actors that work well with their script style and their characterization. I think Bill Murray, the Wilson Brothers (Owen was Wes' roomate in college), and others identify and work well within Wes Anderson's system.
