Texas Ted Burghoff joins Bruce and Shane in the studio this weekend. We saw Total Recall together and our experience was quite different than many others. We'll cover the three new wide releases, including The Bourne Legacy, "the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise", with Fairfield's own Neil Cunningham; The Campaign, a "crude brand of political satire" and Hope Springs the best reviewed of the three, "led by a pair of mesmerizing performances from Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones." It's a gentle, yet poignant story of reinvigorating a 31 year marriage. An Oscar Best Picture The Artist shows Friday evening (8/10) at the FF Library, free!
You may have heard us, or read our Filmosopher's blog extolling Wes Anderson's (Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore) joyful film Moonrise Kingdom (image). We're excited to tell you it starts Friday at the Co-Ed Theatre. This continues their recent history of booking splendid indie films (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, etc.). If so inspired, let Marilou and the staff know that's appreciated.
Shane and I saw the sweet, loving documentary Being Elmo, available at the FF Library, about Kevin Clash the puppeteer who created and "is" the Elmo millions worldwide came to love on Sesame Street. We'll talk about that and more on the Filmosophers, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM Central, again Sundays, 9:00 AM. "Jiminy cricket, he flew the coop!" - Moonrise Kingdom
Friday, May 25, 2012 is the 35th Anniversary of the opening of the iconic film Star Wars. It's also the day filmmaker Patrick Read Johnson (Spaced Invaders) will depart Wadsworth, Illinois, "in my 1975 Ford Pinto, on a 30-day, cross-country, road-trip Kickstarter campaign to finally bring 5-25-77 to the screen." There will be a test screening of 5-25-77 Saturday night at the Sondheim. We'll talk with Mr. Johnson about his film and his current adventure, soon to be known as Hearts of Dorkness: A Filmmaker's Oddyssey.
We'll also talk about the much anticipated opening of Men In Black 3; the highly praised Moonrise Kingdom, the latest from one of our fave filmmakers- Wes Anderson (Rushmore) and more. We're the Filmosophers, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions", Friday at 12:30 PM Central, rebroadcast Sunday at noon. Live stream @solar powered kruufm.com
