I thought the trailer showed enough really... I don't like these trailers that feel like they're showing half of the movie..

Starring Nicolas cage and directed by Panos Cosmatos



Definitely not for the squeamish..
Directed by the son of Rambo First Blood pt 2 directer George P Cosmatos

Kind of in the spirit of 70's exploitation movies.. Cage is back to his crazed best as he takes on
a group of drug addled demon bikers..  Great fun but full on..

The Swimmer
1968



Staring Burt Lancaster.. who at 55 looks in great shape in this drama..

Cult movie about a man who decides to swim home using all of his neighbours swimming pools..
The further he gets into his journey the more he appears to find out about himself...and all is not as it at first seems..

I havn't seen this film in a long time but still enjoyed it..
I've always admired Lancaster.. an actor not afraid to take on interesting, offbeat and uncommericial projects
interspersed with more usual star fare... sound familiar ?  ;)

One of the main things that interested me about the Pepper re mix was the (apparently) vast improvement
It made to the drums...

I would be very interested in hearing the recently re mastered/mixed Sergeant Pepper album to see if it really
 is such a vast improvement over the original release... Did anyone hear it yet.. ?

Any Laurel and Hardy fans out there ?
I don't think this will go on general release until next year but from the trailer it looks very good..



Set near the end of their career's and detailing the duo's last tour of England in the early 50's..
Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel and John C Reilly as Oliver Hardy..

Thats a tough one Matt.. I'm a huge Bowie fan but long ago pretty much gave up on trying to work out the meanings of his songs.. I guess a lot of them are open to many interpretations..

Quoting Bowie himself when asked..

"That song for me always exemplified kind of how you feel when you're young, when you know that there's a
piece of yourtself that you havn't really put  together yet. You have this great searching, this great need to
find out who you really are"

Bowie's songs often returned to these themes.. Fractured personalities and alienation... People on the outside, lost.. looking for something..

But as you say.. (and particuarly with his songs )  its up to the listener to interpret the songs and take from them what they can...

I recently played at a converted cinema in East London, Walthamstow where Hitch went as a kid to see movies.. Amazing building, I've got photo's but unfortunately they're on my phone so I can't upload..

Ha... I often feel that way too..

I was talking to a girl backing singer I was working with recently and I asked her if she could go anywhere back in time where would she travel to.. She said the 80's..

Heartbreak Ridge for me too.. For all the reasons KC states.. I think its one of Clints best performances..

After that Kellys Heroes.. I always enjoyed the film as a kid and like all the other actors/performances also..
