Someday I’d like to check out a Lebowski Fest, but I’ll make do with tomorrow’s screening until then.Any Jacksonville Hatchlings would be wise to take a break from bowling, driving around, and the occasional acid flashback to visit the theatre and enjoy the flick. We’ll be the ones in Lebowski T-shirts, reeling from too many White Russians.
2. Insidious Hits Blu-ray
Insidious is hitting DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday and I couldn’t be more excited. I saw the movie twice in the theater, and each time it set off a flurry of emails between me and the other Hatchers about the creepy film’s awesomeness. I wouldn’t be too surprised if a post or two pops up on the blog after we watch the movie again next week.
3. Thoughts on Nashville
We caught another band at a bar called The Stage. They played a lot of country, which I’m not a fan of (nor is any of the crew I believe), but all of the members were solid. I drank far too much but I do remember that the electric guitarist really wanted to play some Metallica, as he kept breaking in to “Enter Sandman."
4. Top Album Openers
My fellow Hatchers each compiled a list of their favorite album-opening tunes recently. Each list is pretty impressive and seems to say to me, “Remember earlier when you said you’re the least knowledgeable about music in the group? We lists AGREE.” Check out Tiff’s, Pat’s, and Nick’s if you have a minute.
5. Starman Trailer
Appropriately enough since Lebowski is coming up, I watched Starman again recently. I think it’s a really underrated flick. Some aspects haven’t aged well, but the movie, essentially a road trip film about an alien that takes the form of a young woman’s dead husband, really has some fantastic moments and Jeff Bridges turns in a great performance – he was nominated for an Oscar for the role. I’ll actually be writing more about the film sometime in the future. For now, enjoy the trailer below.
