Lent: Part 18

Deep Blue Sea (1999) – Maybe I’ve been ruined by science fiction/horror of the past, but I find movie scientists less believable when they provide a motivation other than “I just wanted to see what would happen.” Still, the fact that most of them die is quite rewarding.

Oh, and I know I said I’d watch Hard Day’s Night, but Netflix is an asshole, and now denies that the movie even exists.

Lent: Part 15

Black Narcissus (1947) – A movie about mountain-climbing nuns is not as hilarious as you would think it should be.

A note on programming: As I am running grossly late on Lent (today should be Part 20), I will have to do some catching up before my schedule gets completely out of control.

Friday: there will be a movie. I don’t know what yet, but there will be at least one.

Saturday: Two or three movies, of the Beatles type, at Darien’s, Joe’s, and Mori’s house. Hard Day’s Night and Yellow Submarine for sure. Possibly a third to be decided when the time comes.

Sometime next week: Skidoo, Carol Channing’s lost piece of garbage, assuming I can find it in the heap of garbage that is my room, and Carol Channing: Larger Than Life at the Film Center in Seattle Center. I was going to make an event of this, but it turns out there’s no good time to double-feature these two. Oh well.
