Hi-De-Ho!

Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone! Just a general "what's happening" to you all.

Tonight its a little "Lucid" mixed with some viewing of a little historical film called 12 Monkeys.

Hope you all are well.

 

:cheers:

Ah yes, the last film that Brad Pitt did for a paltry sum before he blew up into a big star. Enjoy the show and the 'sinthe!

Yes, it's quite an interesting little flick. One that I can't seem to get enough of. Probably a weekly thing for me.

 

I am not a Pitt fan but to see him in his Jeffery role cracks me up!

Hi Abby. :wave2:

 

We do have a thread for just this kind of post. You can find it here.

 

Good movie and decent absinthe. That's my kind of night! Once I get off work I hope to fire up Netflix and stream Triumph of the Will alongside a glass of the green stuff.

I recommend checking out the 'inspiration' for '12 Monkeys' too: 'La Jetee' http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056119/

 

Absolutely. One of the most haunting movies ever made; it blows 12 Monkeys out of the water. I did my happy dance when I found the Trevor Duncan score available for download on iTunes.

You weren't aware of the absinthe and nazi connection?

 

Actually, I'm just watching it for the historical significance. I only got a chance to watch the first half last night, but I couldn't help but see the similarities between the Nazi rallies and the ones we're shown of North Korea today. Blind, fanatical hero worship.

I can understand that. I had to sit through it twice back in my grad school days and each time I felt the need to shower afterward. Kind of like my experiences with Birth of a Nation. Probably could have used a glass of absinthe at the time.
