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. :'-(
