I do run out of ideas of what I want my next movie to be.
That’s why I maintain a list on the website of my supplier of rented DVDs, the online service zip.ca
I will link most of the movie titles in this blog to imdb.com, for your convenience.
Of course, that’s where I get my art cinema from, and concert movies too. I’ve just had MORE (Pink Floyd), PERSONA (Ingmar Bergman) and Jim Jarmuch’s YEAR OF THE HORSE (if you are into air-guitar stuff, get this. Forget Guitar Hero, get a friend and ride the Crazy Horse together).
Every once in a while I look back at the movies I rented in the last 3-4 months, and the feeling is good: they still do 5-star movies. On any scale you would think of, one can find a recently-produced movie to top it.
Here’s a sample from my list, hopefully you’ll say “Hey, I haven’t seen this one, let’s check Georgies taste”
I know, these are last year’s movies, but I know some of you might have missed them.
BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU’RE DEAD ( 5 stars out of 5)
Until recently I had my podcast hosted by Podomatic. It was a free, 500 MB storage service that worked decently for the basic needs of a podcast.
Following PAB2008 I knew I need more, but I was procrastinating because of 2 reasons:
We moved to Toronto’s suburbs in late 2006. By then, my Subaru Outback was 1 year old and we were totally in love with him.
With life in the ‘burbs, we soon found out that we need another car. We leased a brand new VW Rabbit, cause I saw it’s ad in Rolling Stone and thought it was cool.
Fast forward 5 months, and we had it with the life in suburban Canada: we missed the busy corner at Yonge and Davisville! We sold the house immediately and moved back to our beloved Merton Street.
You can reach this heavenly corner in a one-day trip from Toronto, Hamilton, Kitchener, Detroit, London, Buffalo etc.
This is a place on the Northern shore of Lake Erie.
It’s called Sandy Hill.
A sound-bite stuck to my mind while walking away from Scarborough Dude‘s (with John Meadows) presentation at PAB2008: “I bought every single Rolling Stones record from the 60s until today; I have the right to play a damn Rolling Stones song in my podcast!”
I felt compelled to stand up and applaud!
