The Filmosophers Movie Talk

Held over at the Orpheum is The Theory Of Everything, included on "The Sate Theatre photoIndependent's" list of New Year's films to see: "it’s a moving, life-affirming portrayal of the eminent scientist’s life (Steven Hawking) from his student days at Cambridge to receiving his Companion of Honour from the Queen." You'll also enjoy Eddie Redmayne's Oscar nominated-to-be performance.

Al Green, Craig Stamps and I saw The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies at the historic State Theatre in Washington (see pic). It was their first time back in 2-3 decades. The State first opened in 1893. Therefore, I say the 1902 pioneer film A Trip To The Moon so wonderfully realized in the must-see (in 3D, IMO) 2011 film Hugo, starring Ben Kingsley as Georges Méliès, was shown as a new release feature film sometime early in the century at the State. They still feature a curtain rising before every show. How cool is that? From my perspective, Brother Al had a joyful reaction. And of course Brother Chris has seen The Battle Of The Five Armies more than once.

We'll also mention new releases, including young talented Director J.C. Chandor's (All Is Lost; Margin Call) latest well-reviewed film: A Most Violent Year ; some of 2014's highest rated films and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch, special guest Al Green and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions". Friday 12:30pm, again Sunday mornings 11:30. "One day I'll remember. Remember everything that happened: the good, the bad, those who survived... and those that did not." - Bilbo Baggins
