A slow moving little movie, with sparse dialog and cute dogs. Jeff Bridges does a fine job as Jon Katz, a depressed writer with writer's block, who takes an extended break from his work and family to take care of a new (out-of-of control) border collie that falls into his lap. Katz ends up figuring out that it's actually his own self that needs changing.
I wanted more from this movie. I exepected something more from the end, then the credits rolled.
I can see how the book would have been better.
This local musian performs great songs with an environmental twist for the kiddies. You can also catch him around town crooning his silly enviro songs for throngs of kids and parents. Check it out!
What a delightful series! Well, as delightful as a show about the results of a tragic event can be. David Simon's characters, fully researched and brought to life (as in The Wire and Homicide: Life on the Street), is fantastic, and the actors do an amazing job.
The show opens in the Treme, an area in New Orleans, three months after Hurricane Katrina hit. The Treme is music-rich and culturally diverse, which makes for some lively characters and a stellar soundtrack. The show focuses on a core group of characters as they attempt to rebuild their lives in a broken city.
While watching you know that the show itself is just fiction, but thinking of what really happened in New Orleans after Katrina, well, it's sad. I was reminded of the book "Zeitoun" by Dave Eggers, which is the true story of man who stayed in the storm, helped others, and suffered greatly.
Nonetheless, highly recommend.
(And no, it's not The Wire. But there are some actor crossovers.)
This is a great guide to growing all sorts of veggies in Michigan's climate. It is a handy resourse to have as you are deciding what to plant, and when and where.
This movie was well made, visually stunning, action packed, etc. But it fell short. Really. Why was there so much hype about this movie? I expected it to be some mindblowing tripped out awesome movie experience. But it wasn't.
