Dude, where have you been?
Posted to FoodDude's profile May 19, 2009
no new reviews yet, bud? I'll be back...any chance for a review for "Angels and Demons"?
May 26, 2009
It was mediocre at best... okay I'm being generous. It pretty much sucked. 2 stars out of 5. The book was great though.
May 31, 2009
aw no....I guess I made the right decision in skipping it.

I'm hoping we'll see a "Terminator Salvation" review from you soon! :)
May 28, 2009
Honestly, Lunch users beat me to the punch to the bunch b/c, like @jbeswick, I was disappointed with the film!  A hyper mess with a dull story.  However, it did yield good laughs as my friends and I attacked every sci-fi cliche on screen.  Christian Bale: "oh no!  terminator is attacking, I better shoot the giant container of lava above it ...whooops...didn't work...how about that pipe spewing liquid nitrogen?  Whoops...didn't work..." etc.

Well, that was direct recall of the second film in which young John Connor saw the "good" Terminator use the same tactics to slow down the "bad" Terminator, so that cliche as you refer to it was actually an intentional reference to T2.
May 30, 2009
Reference or not, it didn't fit in with the new Terminator film that tried to be a serious sci-fi flick, rather than the more entertaining and over-the-top days of T1 and T2. There's a distinct tone change in this new one that doesn't pay homage to the glory of Arnold and the kid.

Well, there I agree, but that's been common in films of recent years. Notice the change of tone in the new Bond films and the new Star Trek. Apparently, we've entered the age of taking everything too seriously whereas in the '80s and '90s nothing was sacred. Too bad, especially for a guy like me with an irreverent sense of humor. Oh, well. the more serious people take things the sharper the satirical edge in my reviews I guess. :)

I see that in some movies, but Star Trek was quite funny, and we're mainly referring to summer blockbusters.  Fortunately, there's still Woody Allen's Whatever Works to keep everyone playfully cynical and amused.
June 02, 2009
Yeah, I don't know... I sort of got off the Woody Allen bandwagon when he started having sex with his own adopted daughter. When's he going to realize that he's an unattractive and only marginally talented filmmaker who continually casts himself as a neurotic sex symbol?
June 02, 2009
What an artist does in his personal life should not have an effect on how you judge his work.  If that was the case, nobody would listen to Wagner because he was a Nazi...who made beautiful music.  I think Allen's lack of sex appeal is one of his great attributes because he's an average looking guy with hilarious, self-deprecating commentary on the world of dating, living in New York and even philosophy (see Hanna and Her Sisters).  I love how he toys with the audience in creative ways, like in Annie Hall when he breaks the 4th wall or images life as a cartoon character.
June 02, 2009
To a certain extent I agree. I too love Wagner's music as well as Orff's, and as you point out you can love a work of art while loathing the artist (Hitler himself was a talented painter despite being a human monster). Still, I think i'm biased against Woody these days. Somehow I feel he's lost his edge and tried to regain it by being as sexist as possible. Even his recent dramas all have the same themes and include men who take advantage of women who are unwilling to see through their shallow exteriors. He is, however, great at getting actors to give their best efforts (evident in "Vicky Christina Barcelona" most recently).

I see you've changed your screenname--formerly known as "Movie Man eh?
May 12, 2009
"What's in name? That which we call a cinephile By any other name would be just as movie obsessed."
May 12, 2009
he heh.
May 12, 2009
Yeah, only now I'm thinking that you go to the theatres just for the popcorn and not the films. :)
May 13, 2009
I have been known to grab a cocktail at the Arclight in Hollywood, steal their amazing popcorn and run out before my parking expires.
May 15, 2009
:) Smart man.

Won't even try eating catnip? Not very open-minded afterall. :)
April 07, 2009
catnip is very good.
April 08, 2009
Is it now? Do you use any special herbs to season it? I suppose it's a lot better than kitty litter. >:(

Thanks for the friend request, movieman! It's always awesome to meet someone who loves movies as I do. I'll talk to you later, and Count Orlok had suggested that we join the discussion forum for "Watchmen"...
Posted to FoodDude's profile March 13, 2009
I like being followed on the internet. In real life is where I draw the line. :)
Posted to FoodDude's profile March 09, 2009
Sorry, I usually just put soy sauce and/or olive oil on my fish, but allrecipes.com is a great place to find recipes of all kinds if you don't know about it already.
Posted to FoodDude's profile March 05, 2009
Will be waiting to check out your review of Watchmen.
Posted to FoodDude's profile March 04, 2009
Yeah I went there a few years back and fell in love with Chimay. European beers are excellent but I love trying local brews, and wines, for some reason.
Posted to FoodDude's profile March 04, 2009
Hey there, I've got a ton of favorites. My favorite beers are from Oregon's Deschutes Brewery. They make the best porters and stouts, which go very well with hearty foods like burgers & fries. Unfortunately, it's hard to find them in Southern California, but they are in some liquor stores here and there. Do you have any personal favorites?
Posted to FoodDude's profile March 03, 2009
Hi Eric, thanks for the comments and suggestions! I'll try to make my way to Jaipur the next time I'm in the LA area. And is Slumdog Millionaire really worth watching? Maybe I should check it out before they stop playing it in theaters!
