Wow, this is up quick after the last post. It's almost like I didn't have to write anything at all for it!
Stubless: Fantasia & Fantasia 2000 on 30 November 2010 in my living room, 8pm and Homeless Angels & Spring on Korean Peninsula on 5 December 2010 at the Harvard Film Archive, 7pm.
Shockingly little to say this week - the linked reviews more or less say it all. Although my brother Dan confirms that the Fantasia story I relate in the "Animation" entry did take place in 1982, as he remembers it too, with our next-youngest-brother Travis the baby at the time. You know, 1982 is a long time ago, to the extent that Dan now has two daughters, just a little younger than he and Travis were back then.
One thing that came to me when reflecting on that bit, though, is that if this is a formative movie-watching experience for me, it separates me a bit from a lot of the other mega-movie-fans I talk to online, especially genre fans, in that their stories are often about catching movies on late-night TV (the older ones), or VHS, or the ones that were in heavy rotation on HBO/Cinemax. I sometimes do think I'm a little more insistent on film, and seeing things in the theater than they are, and don't have quite the attachment to certain movies (I've never seen Road House, for instance).
So... That's that. A relatively late "Next Week" coming up!
