Bit of a punt here with a short weekend review...
Finally got to the new Bond flick - enjoyed it a lot...Mr. Craig was great and the opening 'jump' chase was spectacular - but agree that it was too long (or at least naive to think the ten minute 'he's really in love and will drop everything for this woman to lie on a beach and smooch in the sand' sequence would fool anyone or at least be able to create any sadness in viewer when all went south) - perhaps the ladies in the audience bought in...
Managed to attend a few holiday get togethers...very nice. But got stuck twice...once trying to pull out of a parking spot, and once just trying to exit an alley. Too much unploughed snow, City!
Took the plunge and got a Xmas kitten for the kids - a 'unique' kitty with six toes on one paw. But spent way too much time placing ornaments higher on the tree and cleaning up messes and listening to meowing late into night (there's always a but). Still, its all good - the kids are thrilled and that's the point. (Support your local Animal Shelter)
Another cool music video teaser for your entertainment - REM's 'Imitation Of Life' from 2001.
This is the kind of video that me and my DOP (Director of Photography) pals would discuss for hours trying to figure out 'how they did it?'...but were never able to try any of the cool tricks ourselves in the land of tv series. Never enough time or money.
No 'but's' however for the season finale of 'Dexter'. Found it entertaining and exciting (nice reveals and no real idea which way it might go...guess you have that in your court when your hero is also a serial killer) and ultimately satisfying. And really interested now in reading the source book 'Darkly Dreaming Dexter' to see how they grew it into a series as that's something I'm attempting to do now with a different novel.
But I'm betting it's all in the execution...
