Can you guess which of the eggs in my fridge are more of the “hard boiled” sort?
Maybe it’s just my imagination (game), but it seems like more movies made news this year than in most previous years. It might just be the zaniness surrounding The Interview or the controversies about American Sniper that grabbed a lot of the headlines recently. But I think it’s because so many of the notable films were based on real-life people or events.
Time was, we were the only ones on the block recycling. Now in 2015, most of our neighbors drag their recycling out to the curb. Multicolored bins line our street like giant Pez candies.
We’ve noticed since our girls left the house, that we generally only have a small bag of trashy garbage and two large bins of recyclables. That’s a lot of television time.
I think I have failed you, dear reader. And for that, I apologize. In my “best of” movie list for 2014, I left out a film I hadn’t seen yet. Granted, it was released in a very limited run — later in the year and didn’t really hit the DVD/rental market until a few months into this new year — but still, I could’ve done better.
If you haven’t guessed by the title of this blog, I’m referring, of course, to The Lego Movie. No, just kidding. Though I did wait until 2015 to see that particular film, I encourage you to go rent Hector and the Search for Happiness.
From Wedding Wire and The Knot:
“Rodney Curtis is an award-winning wedding photographer based in Troy, Michigan. Proficient in both portraits and wedding photography, he photographs all over the Greater Detroit areas of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. Rodney also travels across the state and country too. He has photographed wedding couples in such exotic locations as Paris and Jamaica, but he’s just as happy taking portraits in Lansing & Ann Arbor.”
When Bernie and Alex approached me to create a video featuring them slow-running with the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack I couldn’t believe our rescue dogs were such cinephiles.
The audio clip is from George Baker’s hit Little Green Bag, recorded in 1969. You can purchase the track here on iTunes for 99 cents.
