Searching for Bobby Fisher
Damn, if you forgot how awesome this movie is or say you've never seen it, I suggest you check it out again, or for the first time. I had the pleasure of catching it on direct TV whilst I was flying over Mexico and California yesterday. I was totally blown away by the greatness of this movie. The vibe is one of the best in any movie I've seen. Mellow and awesome but not boring and stupid. Everything i didn't want to happen totally didn't happen and that's always nice when movie watching. And hey, i also forgot that the guy from Boogie Nights who (SPOILERS AHEAD;) kills himself and his wife at a new years eve party because she has sex with tons of dudes, in front of tons of dudes. The same guy was also in the movie Fargo. In Searching for Bobby Fisher his character was still pretty dorky, but not as dorky and pathetic as in those other aforementioned movies. Man, Searching for Bobby Fisher is the best! Also I think there should be something said here, in this post, about heightened emotional levels while seeing movies on planes, i think they might be much higher than if you were to see the same movie at your house or in a theater. Maybe it has to do with the headphones, or going somewhere or coming back from somewhere. I say this because when i was flying over California and Mexico the opposite direction last week, i got pretty choked up watching The Bridge to Tarabethia, maybe the biggest piece of crap in cinematic history, sorry Disney, i sure hope you're not reading this. I also almost cried on a plane one time while watching this shitty movie about some little girl and this dog she found who, together, save some crappy little town from pollution or something. OK, i'll maybe think about posting more paintings of mine at another date, in a week or more if it's all the same to you. But damn speaking of awesome kids who are great, check out some awesome You Tube videos! The first was just sent to me by Joe White and the second was sent to me last year by Tim Schafer. So remember, see Searching for Bobby Fisher.
ps. If you think Searching for Bobby Fisher sucked, feel free to not agree with me.
