All right...enough with the Star Wars nonsense...
OK, so it's still Star Wars related, but this isn't nonsense, well, it might be a bit silly -- OK, so what if it is a bunch of Star Wars nonsense, it's my blog, so shut up!!
Click the picture above and you can challenge Darth Vader to a battle of wits, Twenty Questions. He'll always take a firm guess on #20 if he hasn't already beaten you by then. He'll continue to guess up to around 30, but be creative - he can be beat!
Be aware that it is little more than a Burger King promotion, so if that creepy Burger King guy shows up, you'll know why.
Films Recently Watched:
Father of the Bride (1991) dir. by Charles Shyer
Father of the Bride (1950) dir. by Vincente Minnelli
Having seen the 1991 film several times and again, recently, this was my first time seeing the original 1950 Father of the Bride. After the Cheaper by the Dozen fiasco, I was surprised to see that the older Father of the Bride was apparently used as a model for the later, 1991 version. This is one case where, in my opinion, both films are well-made and quite good.
Strangers on a Train (1951) dir. by Alfred Hitchcock
Pretty classic Hitchcock. Robert Walker's facial expressions and stares in this film were spooky! Reminiscent of Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs.
Napoleon Dynamite (2004) dir. by Jared Hess
Much to Christy's chagrin, I was compelled to watch this again because I picked it up used from Blockbuster and wanted to check for defects before the guarantee expired. I believe that Christy would be more than happy to point out the "defects" in this film and return it to Blockbuster for me, but it looked fine to me!
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) dir. by Michael Gondry
Odd for a "romantic comedy," but pretty cool conceptually as science-fiction.
