I will be in the thick of shooting a short film I have been obsessing over for about 6 months. Yes, in 168 hours (that's one week girly), I will be halfway through my third and final day and will have a pretty good feeling as to whether the film will be successful or will join the ranks of literally thousands of other short films that will be made this year and suffer a very slow and painful death on the festival circuit. In my nightmares I can see it now.....
Since I will be preoccupied with shooting here are a few things I will miss this week and thus must bitch about them now as I will be busy later.
LOST is really starting to suck. This week's episode will highlight the story of the plane crash survivors who landed on the other side of the island. Recently in my mind I interviewed the writers of LOST and here is the transcript:

WWEY- Well it's great to finally meet you all... I am an avid follower of the show.
WRITER'S OF LOST- YahHiGrea (grumble grumble)
WWEY- I must admit however...not much is happening and alot of stuff is repeated. Who should I blame for that.
WOL'S- (Silence)
WWEY- Great so this week's episode is about the other survivors... Are you guys just kind of making it up as you go and Michelle Rodriguez's people contacted you because FAST AND THE FURIOUS 7 is held up in pre-production so you had to fit her in.
WOL'S- Well...pretty much. Yes.
WWEY- Awesome...sooooo honestly is the ISLAND actually just inside a new IPOD VIDEO and the passengers of OCEANIC FLIGHT 815 flew over top STEVE JOB'S yacht and he used the HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS ray gun (with fire wire chord attached) to beam them inside and all the trippy shit that is happening is just from MR. JOB'S GRATEFUL DEAD and DOORS playlist.
WWEY- Boooooyah. That's what I thought. It was either that or a science experience hosted by a far superior race...

This week I will also miss the opening of WALK THE LINE..
Finally I will miss the introduction of more STAR WARS watches that I am collecting...
viva la Star Wars 4,5,and 6

I just wrote a huge review on all these movies and my words got erased by a computer crash. Instead I will now offer my abridged thoughts on each of these films...all of which I highly recommend.
Very much like JUMANJI...ZATHURA is a film about two brothers who unwillingly journey to space via a 1950's boardgame. Visually the film is really cool and the story is alot of fun. Definitely great for the whole family.
GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK is beautiful. I may be developing a man crush for George Clooney. I loved his first outing as a director (CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND) and this film, although very different, definetly proves he knows what he is doing behind the camera. The genius about this film is you don't have to know anything about the COLD WAR or MCCARTHISM or EDWARD BURROWS. Clooney clues you in on everything in a very relaxed fashion. You get a real sense of what it must have been like to live in those paranoid times but there is plenty of opportunity to laugh and enjoy great acting.
JARHEAD...WELCOME TO THE SUCK. Best tag line ever. This movie was stunning in every way. Surprisingly I found myself and the rest of the audience mostly laughing at the frustrations of modern soldiers in modern warfare. It definitely was not the movie I thought I was going to see. It was not offered no pro or anti war sentiments... in fact halfway through one of the films main characters says "FUCK POLITICS..WE'RE HERE AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS". Fox and Gyllenhaal are perfect together and SAM MENDES (American Beauty) deserves another OSCAR. Go see this movie in the theatre...the way it is suppose to be seen. HOO-RAH!
