The trailer didn't give me a Woody", but then again, I'm old.

Besides, screw the tannin vs. smoky wine esters, where's the absinthe? :laugh:

You got a problem with that?

Hollywood must be going to a different Paris than the one I went too, as I wouldn't use those adjectives on it. I thouroughly enjoyed the historic aspects of the touristy central parts, especially since my grandfather spent some of his youth there, and had the photos and daguerrotypes to show me. I loved the parks (especially Luxenbourg), the Latin Quarter, and the museums, leaving the area between the river and the Sacred Heart Catherdral for future trips. Having riden the bus between airports, I'm keenly aware of the less than glamorous aspects of this huge, industrial metropolis. Give me a small town in Occitania, anytime.

Woody and Owen are good names for a movie, but this smells of chick flick. Granted Woody's chick flicks are usually pretty good.

my opinion of the Works of Woody has been thoroughly stated in the movies thread, and is unlikely to change. Funny, though, I was thinking of him yesterday morning as I read a copy of Heeb magazine on the toilet.

Paris, like any great city, (and there are only a few) will give you what you bring to it. It can be a magical place.

A fat wallet helps. But it is not needed. Just eat/shop where the avereage Pierre does, and you can save a bundle. We ate at little Paris 4 Creperies, or places like Cafe du Marche, mostly filled with locals.

Still Occitania is were we felt most at home. It does feel like a different culture, with a more relaxed & Latin way of doing things. I was in nerd heaven at the Le Mans car museum, but it didn't have the homey feeling I got in the south.

Haven't seen a "Woody" work in some time (yeah OK, take your potshots).

Funny, though, I was thinking of him yesterday morning as I read a copy of Heeb magazine on the toilet.


I didn't know that mag still existed. I have a copy of the first issue somewhere here in the archives. What a scream.

I am excited.

I used to be a huge fan of the Woodman, but the last 10-15 years have been pretty lean, so I've sort of lost touch.

This looks like it will capture a lot of the same Paris charm as "Everyone Says I Love You." His cinematography has always been inspired and this looks to have the classic touch.

Is it a coincidince that two of my favorite places are his, Manhattan and Paris? Or is it just that they can both be magical places?

Maybe he just finds them more magical than LA ... "a city where the only cultural advantage is being able to make a right turn on a red light."

Though, given the self-portrait of his driving skills, would you want to get in a car with him behind the wheel?

Both are large and densely populated cities. Our Lady of all the Angels type cities are large, but spread out (like many others in the USA), and some cities are densely populated, but have a small footprint (New Orleans). But NYC and Paris are huge cities and densely populated. Densely populated cities tend to attract art, but only the really big ones can attract enough art to get that 'magic' feeling you might like.
Just a wild guess.

His London films weren't too magical, so the huge, densely populated city theory may not be totally correct.

However he did Barcelona quite well too (if anyone managed to see past Penelope Cruz).

Her dance in From Dusk til Dawn was an awe inspiring event.

Fantastic song too. I'd love to be able to play that on the guitar.

I hate movies. Really, I do. Mostly I hate the industry more than the product but since 78% of all movies suck dog piss (I made that number up), I usually hate them almost as much as I hate the industry. Actors are a waste of good air.

Woody pissed me off with The Floating Lightbulb. Despite that, Mighty Aphrodite was a totally enjoyable little film. I would actually watch it again in a few years.
