Check it out, the Orpheum Theatre is showing Enders Game a "mainstream" wide Orpheum Theatrerelease film with Harrison Ford & Ben Kingsley, offering "a commendable number of well-acted, solidly written sci-fi thrills." Also, the well reviewed Mr. Nobody, starring Jared Leto: a "big-budget  picture proving Europeans can compete in the sci-fi realm where high production values are king." "A film with a beating heart underneath its breathtakingly designed exterior." Google either film and the Orpheum showtimes come right up. Ain't the internet great? Or as this filmosopher believes, Indra's Net. :)

Hunger Games: Catching Fire is getting great reviews. Philomena starring the great Judy Dench looks like another awards contender, offering "a profoundly affecting drama for adult filmgoers of all ages." We're excited to talk about Michel Gondry's (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) new film: Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky, in which he applies "his playful imagination to animating a series of conversations with the esteemed linguist, philosopher, political commentator and activist Noam Chomsky."   

We'll also talk about the intriguing Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay and more, on the filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30, again a new time Sunday mornings at 11:30.
