For those of us not going (at least at this time) you might enjoy Google Earth, beside the satellite view they have the street view too.

On another note, funny thing is it lists Book of Eli as a Western even if it is postapocalyptic (science?) fiction. However on seeing it I did feel that it definitely had an old west vibe (in addition to the Mad Max vibe!). For a western feeling but definitely not a western you guys might enjoy the...

One that's really easy to have missed is "Tempest" 1982, with John Cassavetes, Gena Rowlands, Raul Julia and others. It may leave many cold but I've re-watched it several times and really enjoy it.

I recently saw Avatar . I agree with most reviewers; it's an epic retelling of Walt Disney's Pocahontas , and it's all spectacle ... but still a pretty incredible experience. I was tremendously skeptical to see it in 3D, but it really enhances it, especially with the ash and flora fluttering around...

I've read that one of our greatest anxieties is the fear of being publicly judged. In this scene we have the Santory exec's (who are judged by their superiors) judging the director, (obviously feeling the pressure), and poor Ms. Kawasaki who is not about to draw any unwanted attention upon herself. ...

Yes, saw it today. I thought it was terrific and it's not even the type of movie I generally enjoy. BM's makeup was a little distracting though, his oddball expressions weren't as obvious (to me).

I love the ways you guys have addressed the Charlotte scarf question. Questions like this and their many variations, "do you like the new carpet, room color, my dress, my watch" etc are really about whether you're going to be part of their life and care about what they care about. John's "I don't kn...

Sorry, guys. I kinda flaked on this. The turn-out has been a little disappointing. But I think we have a contingent of members that want to contribute, right? Cryogenic, for my part I'm thoroughly enjoying your chapter expansions. After spending plenty of time on this forum and watching the movie a...

Welcome T-Dot

Welcome T-Dot. I agree with you about this forum. The wealth of information and observations is just amazing. I thought I knew the film until reading all the posts! It has helped me get even more enjoyment out of the film.

HD DVD quality

Well, I'll throw my two cents in. I also have a HD-DVD player and although I first bought a standard resolution DVD of LIT I went out and got the HD version when I bought the HD player. The resolution quality, in HD, varies dramatically from one scene to the next. I think this is due more to the gen...

you guys are good

I give up! I give up!

You guys are so good with your observations I'm suddenly in the mood to watch the movie again. Perhaps I can recapture that same haunting, beautiful, suspended in the moment feeling I got the first 100 times I watched it. :)

You're absolutely right Cryogenic, I have never connected the opening and closing scenes like that. What a difference in Bob at the end of the story, rejuvenated. One of the things that I love about this forum is how the members have helped me further appreciate the depth of this movie. It is truely...

The opening butt shot also provides a nice contrast with the first scenes of the movie, Bob riding to the Hyatt. Here, on one hand, is a young, semi-nude woman, resting in the safety and quiet of her room, then the very next shots are of a exhausted middle-aged man, fully dressed, riding in a cab th...
