Date Number One screeners were mailed out to David "GreenCine Daily" Hudson & Amir "Still Lover/Whale" Motlagh this week. So more reviews soon I think. Screening #9 of Date Number One will be happening next Thu, 7/13, at Sangha in Takoma Park. Will have all the details on that screening later today.
Larry Clark's Wassup Rockers opens today in DC (yup, at a Landmark theater, oh well. now that Caveh's Sex Addict is doing pretty well, I guess I'll ease up on my Landmark boycott - and since many indiewood flicks only play in Landmark theaters in this area/until a cool competitor opens up a theater), looking forward to checking it out. A drama about Latin-American skate punks in LA, featuring non-actors, & made by the director of Kids sounds like the most exciting movie playing in DC this weekend.
After seeing American Messiah & hanging out with Chris for a bit last night, me & housemate Allie went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest at 12:01 AM this morning. It was the first show of the movie ever at Majestic 20 in nearby Silver Spring, MD. At least 2 screens were sold out for the 12 AM screening - wouldn't mind making a movie that opens with that much anticipation at some point. Dead Man's Chest is good, a nice long ride, I think I liked it better than Pirates 1, some of the sequences felt too long, but all in all a lot of fun - lots of new monsters. I need to get me a Kraken. Wouldn't be surprised if they made more than 3 Pirates movies. Depp's Captain Sparrow can sell a lot of stories I think.
And that's the latest. Have an excellent weekend. More yummy stuff soon.
