This past Wednesday, it had been 20 years since I've seen these two great Wong Kar Wai films (CHUNGKING EXPRESS and DAYS OF BEING WILD) at the very cool UC Theater in Berkeley, CA. Back then, I saw these films with my friends Rich & his then girlfriend-now wife Christina. We would get awesome Chinese food next door and either eat it in line before...

One of the perks I enjoy about being a spoiled ArcLight Cinemas Gold Member is that with each new movie I purchase tickets to, I occasionally rack up enough points to receive free tickets to their "Arclight Presents" screenings of classic films. So tonight (Tuesday evening), my movie viewing was one of my major favorites: Sergio Leone's THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY...

Another film I viewed recently and enjoyed very much was THE GOOD LIE, starring Reese Witherspoon! Great performances from the Main Sudanese actors (children & adults) - some of whom had direct experience of surviving the long turmoil that took place in Sudan. Kudos to Screenwriter Margaret Nagle, Director Philippe Falareau and Crew for creating a thoroughly engaging film. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

THE GOOD LIE TRAILER

prongs:
That was not what I expected. In a good way.
