Sin

Posted on Monday, March 7th, 2005

Dave!Gee... entirely too many good things happening today. Most importantly, my motorcycle is OUT of storage and my car is back IN to storage. Life doesn't get much better than that! I've already gone out for an hour, and realize once again just how trapped I feel driving a car now. Many other people must be feeling the same way, because there were a lot of motorcycles out over the weekend. While this does get a bit tiring because of all the "motorcyclist courtesy waves," there can never be too many motorcycles out on the road. The more people riding, the fewer rights that dumbass lawmakers can take away from us.

I keep "flip-flopping" back and forth over which upcoming movie I am most looking forward to seeing this year. After the fiasco that George Lucas had with the first two Star Wars prequels, I can safely remove the third (and final?) off my list... still, it's got Wookies and Darth Vader, so even that has some amount of excitement around it.

No, setting aside the Wallace and Gromit movie, there are really just two that are coveting for my top spot. The first, Frank Miller's Sin City appears to be very faithful to the stunning comic book that inspired it. It looks exactly like Sin City, has Quentin Tarantino as a guest-director for part of it, and features Gilmore Girls' Alexis Bledel looking disturbingly hot. Moviefone has a new trailer up that totally kicks ass, and has me even more excited to see how it's going to play out...

Sin City Trailer 2

The other film, Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is based on one of my favorite novels of all time, and has been a long, long time coming to the silver screen. The casting looks note-perfect, and since Douglas Adams himself worked on the script before his untimely death, that can only bode well for the adaptation. I want so badly for the film to blow me away and set box office records so that the remaining books in the series will be put to film. The original trilogy deserves at least that much...

Hitchhiker Trailer 2

Yes, a very promising year for movies I think, even if these two films were all we got.

And, in music news, I have a song stuck in my head from a movie trailer I saw for a romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon called Fever Pitch (definitely not a movie for me). It's an excellent rendition of the Supertramp classic Give a Little Bit which is not sung by Supertramp! A search on the iTunes Music Store reveals it's a cover by the Goo Goo Dolls, which I proceeded to purchase immediately. Very sweet. It's the instant gratification that makes me so happy to be alive in the digital age.

Movie Quotable of the Day: "See, I did join the army, but I joined a different army. I joined the one with the condos and the private rooms."
Yesterday's Answer: A League of Their Own (1992) with Tom Hanks and Geena Davis.

    heh, was going to say Private Benjamin.. had to go confirm tho, as it could have been any of those silly army spoofs.. :)

    but… it (star wars) will answer “all” the questions, unlike the final episode or ensuing movies of twin peaks.

    is the quote from private benjamin? i’m such a sucker for those 80s movies. goldie was our sandra bullock.

    great blog!

    Movie quote: Um, is it Private Benjamin?

    As for Hitchhikers Guide, God I can’t wait for that one. I haven’t even see any trailers or visuals, so thanks, Dave, for giving me my first glimpse of the movie! I think I will give the book a quick re-read.

    Quote is from Private Benjamin w/Goldie Hawn? Do I win prizes?

  5. Dave2 says:

    So everybody got Private Benjamin eh? I am definitely making these things too easy… but it is one of my favorite non-profanity-laced quotes from the film.

    The ONLY reason I want to see Star Wars Episode III is for James Earl Jones as Darth Vader and WOOKIES!! WOOKIES, I say!!!

    As for a prize? Yes, yes there is a prize… you win another day of Blogography from yours truly, which is about the bestest prize ever! :-)
