We sent Brother Chris on assignment in Chicago to see Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight in 70mm. "The exclusive 70mm Roadshow engagement of The Hateful Eight pays homage to and recreates the grand film exhibition style popularized in the 1950s and ‘60s and that brought audiences to theaters with the promise of a special event. Taking place in the nation’s largest cities and grandest theaters, Roadshows presents a longer version of the film than will be shown in the wider release, included a musical overture to start the show, an intermission between acts and a souvenir program. Ultra Panavision 70 refers to the very rare and exceptional format that Quentin Tarantino and his team used to shoot The Hateful Eight. Panavision’s unique anamorphic camera lenses capture images on 70mm film, which provides an amazingly wider and more detailed image. This Ultra Panavision 70mm Roadshow presentation of The Hateful Eight is an experience that hasn’t been had in over fifty years." In fact, the camera lens Tarantino used are the "same lens" used to film Ben Hur.
We'll talk about that, new releases, what we've seen and more, on the Filmosophers movie talk, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. "As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all..."
Reggae and beyond.
Rock and beyond.

...from this love I've found. So sayeth Mother's Worry, and I concur. For this show I am pulling out some favorites, as I wind my way up to my five-year anniversary show on Jan. 23rd. I lead off the show with my number one song of 2015, Room of Strange Love by Haunted Leather. From there to Psychic Ills, Alt-J, Golden Gunn, Opal, Dream Syndicate, and even a Turtles song. Plus some obscure rock by T. Swift & The Electric Bag, Plan 9, and Phantasia. Heavily progressive stylistically. You won't be snoozing through this show. Cool Breeze
This show is getting on the road as I type this.... listen for tunes from David Gilmore, Etta James, Wire, The Grateful Dead, and The Smiths. Let your love light loose, is the name of the game today. Enjoy. The G Man
