What Would People Think?

This Is Going To Be So COOL!

I have just decided I must see the new movie called Brick. Why? Because it's film noir set in a high school! Because Joseph Gordon-Levitt is channeling Humphrey Bogart!

I loooooooooooove film noir. Such a source of great lines! Such style! Such characters! Such cinematography! Such twisting plots! Such memorable, colorful characters! Such dark cynicism (which normally I don't like....but these movies are so stylish about it!). At some point I must post about how much film noir kicks ass. Until then, check out all the movies I just linked to. Actually, you should also check out these modern films which have a touch of noir influence (although I'm guessing most of my readers have seen those).

Man oh man....I cannot wait to see this movie.
------------------------------------------------
On an unrelated note: Last night, I was at a home where this movie was filmed. You've probably never heard of it, but I sat down at the same fireplace where Christopher Walken sat (in a home of one of my professors) and that, my friends, is pretty damn cool.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
You may wonder why I linked to a bunch of films in this blog post without just naming them, thus forcing you to go to all the trouble of clicking on a link. Why would I do that? Well, as a great man once said, "I must obey the inscrutable exhortations of my soul."

  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt channels Bogart, you channel Calvin. Brilliant!

    If I didn't point out that you somehow missed "The Maltese Falcon" and "Chinatown". So, you somehow missed "The Maltese Falcon" and "Chinatown". Allow me to correct that.

    I too want to see that movie. Sadly, it won't be playing anywhere near here. Reminds me of certain other movies I really want/wanted to see. I guess that's the problem when you live in the culture capital of Unculturedland (a.k.a. Texas, though it's beginning to look like Florida isn't far behind). Anyway, I'll stop rambling now.

  • I meant to say, "I would be remiss if". Just in case that sentence doesn't make any sense.

    No really, I'll shut up now.
