weekend movie breakdown

Some big films have come out this weekend:

The Social Network
Let Me In
Some Film in Which Renee Zellweger Is Terrorized

do you plan on seeing any of these? TSN is getting rave reviews, remarkably. I don't know why I'm surprised- David Fincher is a fine director, one of my favorites ("what's in the boxxxxxxxx!") but I just thought it was TOO SOON (and kind of trite) for a Facebook movie. I guess it makes sense- it really did shake things up. and Mark Zuckerberg, what a guy. I can't stand Jesse Eisenberg. if I want to watch Michael Cera, I will go find Michael Cera.
all in all though, it looks to be interesting. are you going to see it?

Let Me In is a remake of the Swedish (hai) film Let the Right One In which didn't come out that long ago. there's American cinema for you. I like the title; that's the extent of it. I'm biased on the Swedish issue, as you probably well know.

Renee Zellweger is in a horror movie.
love you, Renee!

...

anyway, I want to see Waiting For Superman about public schools in America but OF COURSE it's not in Erie. I'll have to wait until like December or something. boy, I do love this town.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
