Heyo kids, I know Dustin posted about this a long long time ago but I just finished watching Little Miss Sunshine and I liked it alot so I had to say something about it. Yeah, it really is wonderful. Top two movies I can think of right now: I heart Huckabees and Little Miss Sunshine.
You know that Japanese dancing-style video game that came out a few years ago? Dance Dance Revolution, DDR, etc.? Well, it's not really popular here any more--I have yet to see it in a single arcade. But apparently it's popular enough now in the latin world that they've made a whole movie about it. Man, I hope it gets released here--I'd even pay the crazy Tokyo movie theater prices ($20 a pop) to see it!
I just read in Adrienne's blog that Cinema du Parc has closed. Even though I don't live in Montreal anymore, this makes me sad. I always had a membership there, and saw a ton of cool movies as a result. The Hour has a write-up about it, which basically blames the AMC Forum Theatre for the Parc's demise. I'm sure that was a big factor, but I think the Parc could have survived if they handled themselves better. They were located right beside a giant group of rich McGill kids. That should have been one of their core markets, but I rarely saw much Parc advertising at McGill or around the ghetto (except for their schedules, which does count somewhat I guess).
Anyway, this post is just me shedding an online tear for the good ole Cinema du Parc. :'-(
People who write quotes do it to feel smart. People who read quotes do it to get smarter. People who burn quotes do it to get attention. But those who eat them along with the fortune cookie they came from have found solidarity.
