Then I thought I better write about some of the movies we have playing. I think I started with PRODIGAL SONS. I mean, a film by and about a transsexual in Montana with an adopted brother whose biological linage is Hollywood royalty. You can't make this stuff up. It has to be a documentary.
I also had a few sentences about THE 2010 Oscar NOMINATED SHORTS. We have both the animated shorts and the live action narrative shorts. Hell, I even did a whole bold line about how these are a double feature. See the animated ones and then hang out for the live action. Cool, eh? I did think to mention that though the animated ones are cool for most kids, the last one, Logorama, is a hard R. It is crazy funny, but granny's ears will bleed.
Yeah, we all remember THE HURT LOCKER got Best Picture over that silly movie with blue people. We're still playing HURT LOCKER.
I was trying to find something to write about THE ROAD, but I've been too busy to watch it. Same with THE WHITE RIBBON.
As usual, I had to piss and moan about something. Good thing I can't quite remember what that was.
And there was that thing about us bringing opera and ballet to the big screen at the Darkside in High Definition. We'll have the details for you on that soon. Lainie is working out a press release and would have been really pissed if I had written something like I did above. Boy, that was close.
Oh! And I wrote a little bit about how the Darkside is coming up on its 5th anniversary. April Fools Day! No kiddin'. I wrote something about being all grateful and stuff. It was really moving. Not a dab of sarcasm-just unbridled affection for all of you who have supported us through this 1/20 of a century. I think I wrote something about asking you to reply with your favorite movie you've seen here. Hell, you can still do that!
Then I closed it all up by looping around to the opening paragraph. It's pretty standard writing style-because it works. It moves the beginning of the story into the end of the story painlessly...like a yoga pose.
