Red Cliff – Embarcadero
White doves in ancient Chinese kimonos shoot at each other with tiny bows and arrows. Where’s JCVD when we need him?
The Road – Embarcadero
If you haven’t read Cormac MacCarthy’s Pulitzer Prized The Road then you’re a douchebag. Or you are a douchebag who loves The Road.
I’m the latter. I believe this film was supposed to come out LAST
Thanksgiving, and the test audiences hated it. So, there’s that to
consider. There’s also a scruffy post-apocalyptic Viggo Mortensen
pushing a shopping cart, and the elusive sunken cheeks of Guy Pierce. RAARRR!
Fantastic Mr. Fox – Van Ness, Kabuki, Century 9, Empire
Oh yes, why not – these petit fours seem
delicious! Tiny cucumber sandwiches? Mmm. That’ll pair well with my
English Breakfast. Why, thank you, kind sir.
Old Dogs – Metreon
I saw a trailer for this movie when I was in Memphis. The crowd went fucking nuts — my husband laughed too. Now he’s my ex.
Sound of Music Sing-a-long – The Castro
Man, this movie is soo goood. You laugh, but when you watch it on TCM,
you can’t bear to look away. Julie Andrews is the coolest, and as a kid, I
danced alone in my room imagining I was robed in Swiss drapes (not a
lie!). But I’ve never been to a Sing-A-Long, that actually sounds
annoying. Annoyingly awesome post-drinks! Psst Eve! – Christopher Plummer – NOT Max Von Sydow.
