cinema_babe: (movie reel)
Been meaning to give my movie attendance update but I’ve had a lot on my mind (and plate) this week. So without further ado…..

Tonight, I’m going to see The Man Who Fell to Earth over on the Douglass Campus at Rutgers. They used to run this every year or so late Saturday nights on Channel 13 but I haven’t seen it in probably 10 or 12 years. I seem to remember it as being visually dark so I’ll see how good my memory is.

The Rutgers Film Coop is running this latest adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. I’m not a Keira Knightly fan; I think she is this year’s Gretchen Mol. Out of all the books Jane Austin wrote I ‘m a bit tired of seeing (yet another) version of this one. (BTW, Colin Firth rules! Dig up a British mini series called Lost Empires and a squicky psychological thriller called Apartment Zero; they are both more then worth a look. That'll make you forget all about that awful Bridget Jones mess.)

Tomorrow night, The Raconteur in Metuchen is screening Lars von Trier’s new movie, Manderlay; the follow up to his powerful ( and disturbing) 2003 film Dogville. They’ll be holding a discussion of the movie afterward so it should be an interesting evening. Anyone who wants to go but might need a lift, let me know. I’m going to try to get my hands on Dogville and watch it on Friday while I pack boxes.

I probably have plans Saturday night and Sunday is part three of the strategic planning sessions I’ve been research assisting for; that will be an all day affair. We’ve all been working hard the past couple of months on this and this is the session where it all comes together. It’ll be very cool to see what goals the organization sets for the next 5 years or so.

I could easily be convinced to go to the movies Sunday night. I’ve still got several movies to see before the Oscars in a few weeks.

I'll be sure to have some reviews to post at the top of next week.
