The Imitation Game

What a great film. I knew nothing of Alan Turing before this movie and actually kind of feel like an ignorant fool for not knowing about Enigma. BUT: If you, like I, knew not much about this historical hero, do yourself a favor and DON’T google him before you go. The movie will be much […]

Boyhood

Boyhood is a movie that’s been getting lots of attention: Richard Linklater (of Before Sunrise et al. fame) went on a journey with his cast over 12 years of filming. The result?

Great film. Totally worth the money for 3D.   Anyone else have a monumental crush on […]

Sunday Songs

Neon Trees, “Everybody Talks” — What can I say. I’m a sucker for a poppy, whiney melody. Beruit, “Santa Fe” — No words for this one. Just LOVE it. Death Cab, “Crooked Teeth” (even though there are too many double negatives for me to really understand the chorus — someone want to explain it to […]
