Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘That’s Me Without You’

Hilarious. NASHVILLE is the slow motion train wreck that I can't seem to stop watching.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘That’s Me Without You’

Yeah, but for someone who claims never to read anything that doesn't take place in a Victorian drawing room, you sure do a pretty mean approximation of Pynchon-esque riffing.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘That’s Me Without You’

Not just SLIDING DOORS, but the movie the Belcourt showed last weekend that obviously inspired it. Krzysztof Kieslowski's BLIND CHANCE, bitches!

Oh, and this may be the funniest recap I've ever read of anything. Wait for Alabama to chime in: "Flor-Ala: America's True Taint."

A little snark for a soap can be fun. This piece was just nasty. I'd rather listen to (gag) Florida Georgia Line than read your recaps.

Re: “Salon@615's Fall Season Starts with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Connie Britton, Sept. 20

I attended Saturday's Salon@615 with Kirsten Gillabrand. I enjoyed the time listening to Kirsten. I however only heard about 2/3 of what she said because of the speaker system. I have very high tech hearing aids. If I adjusted them to high I could hear the words "bouncing off the walls". I think the quality of the lecture would have been MUCH better, especially for me and other hearing impaired folk, if she had a microphone on her lapel.

If the sound system is not improved I will not be willing to spend this much money for another lecture and that makes me very sad.

l read about the lecture in the newspaper.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive’

My Name is Amanda. My husband had been gone for about 7 months, I contacted DR ABULU from other testifiers and within a few minutes of speaking with him, I realized that ABULU spell was the one person whom I could completely trust. I didn’t expect the spell would work so fast. Within 12 hours, my husband was back in my life. I want to express my warmest gratitude to I’ll never ever forget all the happiness you gave me. I’ll like to share his contact with you all if any is in need of help..

Re: “In Heaven Everything Is Fine: David Lynch's Eraserhead Midnight at Belcourt

Besides the Millennial nostalgia phenom, there's another trend I've noticed: young women in their 20s and 30s who are fascinated with the movies of Hollywood's golden age (the years from roughly 1920 to 1960) and are writing about it, mainly online, and podcasting and Twittering about it. Karina Longworth, Monica Castillo, the Self-Styled Siren, the Nitrate Diva, etc.

I guess CGI destruction isn't cutting it with these women, and they're looking for something with more depth. They're finding it in movies made long before they were born. They may be the future of cinephilia -- and the people who keep film history alive.

Re: “Dawn of the Planet of the Tapes: Belcourt Launches 'Weeknight Rewind' VHS Nights

There's a documentary about the strange world of VHS collectors called ADJUST YOUR TRACKING. Most of these guys (and they're almost all male) look like the Hells Angels in GIMME SHELTER.

However, several worthy movies are still only available on VHS: MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH, LOOKING FOR MR. GOODBAR, CALIFORNIA DREAMING, OPEN SEASON, etc. And several tons of made-for-TV movies. I assume that music rights or other legal issues are preventing a DVD release ... or, in the case of the TV movies, the owners may assume there's not enough interest.

Re: “In Heaven Everything Is Fine: David Lynch's Eraserhead Midnight at Belcourt

Jim Ridley said: "A landmark midnight movie in the 1970s, back when audiences embraced threat and daring over nostalgia and goofing on shitty movies ..."

Amen. Good to see Belcourt finally showing a real cult movie, instead of pandering to nostalgia for the cheesy blockbusters and kid flicks of the '80s and '90s. The target audience for those movies must be people whose interest in cinema ended when they were 13.

The Millennial craving for their childhood favorites is a strange phenom. In the '70s, you didn't see Boomers going to midnight showings of THE ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR or THE MISADVENTURES OF MERLIN JONES, movies they saw as kids but felt no need to revisit as young adults. I think that for earlier generations, nostalgia kicked in when they were older ... like when they hit 40. Now we have middle-schoolers feeling nostalgic for their kindergarten days.

I'm sure ERASERHEAD won't draw as many patrons as another showing of THE GOONIES or SPACE JAM, but I salute Belcourt for going out on a limb with a quality movie.

Re: “Dawn of the Planet of the Tapes: Belcourt Launches 'Weeknight Rewind' VHS Nights

Ah yes, Silver Video. That's where I once rented a little movie called EVIL DEAD. Later that night I watched it all by myself in a rec room located at the edge of the woods. A night I'll never forget. Eventually I started going to video stores alone because my friends got irritated at my tendency to browse for hours. Looking back on it, I often enjoyed roaming the video store aisles and studying the boxes more than watching the actual movies. It was a challenge trying to pick out good/interesting movies based on the art work and descriptions. Sometimes I got lucky and ended up with EVIL DEAD, PHANTASM or DEAD & BURIED; other times, while searching for the next HALLOWEEN, I ended up with yet another forgettable slasher movie. Sure, I love the clarity and convenience of DVD. But I still occasionally pull out one of my old VHS tapes plop it into the VCR. Just as I think certain music sounds better on vinyl than cd, there are some movies (especially some of the low-budget 80's horror) that just feel right on VHS. For me, upgrades like "crystal clear", digital and high def don't automatically result in a better movie-watching experience. At the end of the day, I guess it's all about whatever makes you happy. Looking forward to seeing what Zack and the Belcourt gang come up with.
