We have one over at MMA and I figured it would be cool to have one here too. Also I watched a very jazzy movie last night so...

i know there is a ton of stuff on youtube, and Ive enjoyed watching some Miles Davis interviews there. I might check out Bird, as Ive been trying to move backwards with my jazz listening (I dont have much from before 1950, aside from a Charlie Parker/Miles Davis album)

OOOOOOOOOOOOOH boy, this was a strange one...

Following on from my Darren Aronofsky phase, The Fountain. Fantastic film actually, I'd recommend it.

Semi-recently saw The Return by Andrei Zvyagintsev and was gutted at the end. Still a beautiful film, however. Wouldn't call it a Thriller, though it is psychological, but there is probably just as much of the feel of a family Drama too, if a bleak one.

The Adjustment Bureau -7/10
I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

I caught "The Tourist" the other night and it was okay as a light diversion flick.  However, Angelina looks like a million bucks in every scene.  She's always a knockout but whoever dressed her for this one knew what they were doing.  Yowza!  Sax man

Re-watched Social Network again last night not so much for the plot but for the excellent soundtrack by Trent Reznor.  Clever dialogue in that flick is intriguing, as well.

Just re-watched Pyscho & Dial M for Murder back to back. Anthony Perkins does do a good job indeed
