Apropos of nothing
Austin Books is a heck of a store. And they had a darn good Free Comic Book Day. I salute them.
Austin's Paramount Theater has already started the 2008 Summer Film Series. And there's a lot of great stuff coming up.
In June, they're showing
-Mary Poppins (and I LOVE Mary Poppins. Shut up.)
-Harold and Maude - never seen it
-Laura (this movie is really good. No lie.)
-The Birds (Oskar Sala!)
-Frankenstein & Revenge of Frankenstein (why they didn't grab Bride of Frankenstein, I have no idea)
-Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
-The Last Picture Show - never seen it
-Hud - never seen it
-Three Days of the Condor - never seen it
-Village of the Damned - only seen the re-make
-The Time Machine
-Planet of the Apes
-The French Connection
-Destry Rides Again
-Gone With the Wind
-Bridge on the River Kwai
-(and your endurance test) Lawrence of Arabia
Not bad. If anyone is interested in any of these movies (or something I didn't mention), let me know, and we'll make an appointment.
