The perfect companion piece to Dr. Horrible is the season 6 Buffy episode "Once More With Feeling", a full-blown musical written, arranged and directed by Whedon. It's wonderful.

^^ Haven't seen "Dr. Horrible," but yeah, that musical episode of "Buffy" was classic.

As for me, I just got an e-mail from the library sayin' that a couple of the DVDs I've reserved are ready for pickup, so tonight I'll either be watching "Fanboys" or "Kick-Ass" (haven't decided which yet).

"Clerks II" was a pisser, as I expected. Kevin Smith is the man. The "Donkey Show" bit was sooooo fuggin' wrong. (Rosario Dawson: "I'm horrified, and repulsed... but I can't look away." Haha)

Tonight will be either "Repo Man" or "Kick-Ass," I haven't quite decided yet. May have to flip a coin.

"Apollo 18" was pretty cool, as was "Repo Man," last night I watched "Whip It," that was fun too.

Tonight is "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters," a documentary set in the competitive arcade-gaming world. I caught a bit of this on ESPN a year or two ago and was surprised to find it on DVD at the library, so now I can find out how it all turned out.

Also picked up "Tommy," the film version of the Who's rock opera. Haven't seen that in a long time. Ann-Margret...homina homina homina!!!

Tommy is SUCH a bizarre flick, definitely not the best way to experience the music of Tommy, but probably still interesting in an acid-trip gone horribly wrong kinda way.

I think I watched Tommy on cable when I was around 11 or 12. It made very little sense to me, but I remember enjoying the music.

For a long time, The Who were my favorite band.

I'd seen "Tommy" years ago (probably on HBO) when I was in my teens and I remember very little of it except that Tina Turner's "Acid Queen" frightened me, and, well, the aforementioned Ann-Margret.

I caught a bit of it on VH1 Classic a couple of weeks ago and went "Damn, this is whacked." So when it turned up on the shelf at the library I figured it was a sign that I needed to see it again in its entirety.

So I watched "Tommy" last night...and yeah, it's still totally whacked. Haha. Interesting flick though. They could never make a movie like this today. The studio would insist on adding dialogue, product placements, and explosions.

Oh, and Ann-Margret's infamous "detergent, beans and chocolate" hallucination scene... still epic.

Best line of dialogue I've heard in awhile....

Girl - "Make me your bitch, fuck me like I'm Al Queda!"
Guy - "I'm declaring Jihad on your pussy."

laughing very hard

from Californication. This show rules.

Got a couple of new flicks from the library to get me thru the long Labor Day weekend... "Evolution" w/David Duchovny and Julianne Moore, "Scarface" w/Al Pacino (believe it or not I've never seen this movie "uncut" - just the edited-to-hell-and-back version shown on network TV) and "Dog Day Afternoon," again with Pacino.

Picked up "Dog Day Afternoon" on a whim cuz I heard a news report on the radio about the famous bank robbery that inspired the movie, it had happened 40 years ago this week. Never seen the movie but I've always been curious about it, I'm told it's a great one.

Dog Day Afternoon is quite an experience. The political climate at the time was combustible and all that gets filtered into the film. It's not your typical "heist movie", spending as much time on character as it does on the robbery itself. Back when there were truly great scripts being produced in Hollywood.

I miss the no-holds-barred edginess of 1970s filmmaking, bleak, honest and detailed. The only place you can find that level of art nowadays is in independent films.
