In the Shadow of the Moon

Fun it was.

Out of this world

From 1969 to 1972, America put 12 men on the moon in nine missions. Eight of the surviving crew members (notably absent is the reclusive Neil Armstrong) talk about their adventures in the documentary In the Shadow of the Moon with less of the engineering and more of the philosophy, a bit different from the dramatic renditions of The Right Stuff, Apollo 13, and HBO'S From Earth to the Moon.

Balls of Fury

Maybe furious, but not pretty . . .

Not Powerball

For slacker comedy, one of the indexes I think I will use is how many times the hero is kicked in the groin. In Balls of Fury, ex-ping-pong Olympian Randy Daytona (Dan Fogler) is kicked in the titular region at least three times, making this a pratfall-prone, intellectually-challenged comedy with enough low-level laughs to satisfy low cultural instincts. He is hired by the FBI to find a world-class villain Feng (Christopher Walken) with an affinity for table tennis.

Halloween

All telegraphing . . .

"I think of horror films as art, as films of confrontation. Films that make you confront aspects of your own life that are difficult to face. Just because you're making a horror film doesn't mean you can't make an artful film."

David Cronenberg

Paris is for lovers.

Diane and Woody World
