m says...

hi everyone! the blog author and i just saw eagle eye and i wanted to let you all know that it was kind of awesome. it made me think of that simpsons treehouse of horror episode, house of whacks, but with tons of expensive explosions, car crashes, running away from things and running to save things, an excess of ridiculousness, yet no blood, as it was pg13.

some people you didn't think you would see in this were, lynn cohen, magda from sex and the city, ethan embry, come on you all know who he is, mark from empire records, michael chiklis, the commish!, and bill smitrovich, life goes on. i didn't realize life goes on was from 1989. sorry we don't have the commish or life goes on at the store, but i'm sure if anyone really wanted them they would've already bought them for themselves, as who wants to go to waterfront and ask for the commish?

oh shia and your doofy mugshot, who knew you could create such a wildly entertaining movie that had me laughing from start to finish. well like we said in an earlier post there are many movies at waterfront that relate to eagle eye and i think you should come on down to the store tomorrow a.m. and rent every single one, especially demon seed as that's the one our blog author mentioned while we were watching eagle eye.

Coming Distractions September 30th, 2008

On Tuesday the world (might) implode.

Taxi to the Dark Side
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Iron Man
Bigger Stronger Faster
The Unforeseen
CSNY/Deja Vu

Tomorrow-Friday, September 25th-is a big day for theater movies. But don't go out to see Choke or Eagle Eye or Nights in Rodanthe, because you know you want to wait several months until they come out on video. Or you want to see them in the theater and then rewatch them in the comfort of your own home.

From its advertising campaign one can infer that Eagle Eye is a story in which several characters must run away from something. Another movie where someone has to run from something: The Game, which was directed by David Fincher. Fincher also directed Fight Club, which is adapted from a novel by Chuck Palahniuk, who also wrote Choke. Clark Gregg is the man who directed Choke and he acts in Iron Man. Hopefully, knowing all that will make each of your days on this earth a little easier to endure.

In Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana must run from a boulder. Right? Yeah!

<---here's another advertising campaign! Think of all those times you've cut yourself spreading peanut butter or had to wash that spoon from your late night snack. Finally! Gosh, what took mankind so long?? We already put a man on the moon (...or did we?)

Tuesday: That Great Day in The Beginningish Part of Your Week

Sex and the City Movie

Run, Fat Boy, Run
The Foot Fist Way
Boston Legal - 4th Season

I love art history. It has almost everything I would be inclined to learn about: history, religion, art and architecture, fashion and film. There are even interesting movies about art historians, such as Don't Look Now, which I would recommend not only for having one of the better sex scenes ever filmed, (Question: Are Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie smoking hot? Answer: Yes!) but also for its depiction of some risky church restoration.

Fashion! Last Tuesday we added Lagerfeld Confidential to our collection. After three years of collecting footage, the world can now see Karl Lagerfeld's countless rings, priestly collars, and Nicole Kidman. And clothes. After that, you can also watch our new Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton documentary, or Unzipped, with Isaac Mizrahi.

The only thing art history doesn't include is enough music. But you know what does? The movie Unknown Woman, score by Ennio Morricone, man of a million soundtracks. Unknown Woman, directed by Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso, A Pure Formality, Malena) is tense and engaging, and after its all-too-brief one week run is returning to Cinema 9, on Shelburne Road next Friday. (Correction: where Helvetica did not play last Saturday...oops...)

In fact, a lot of exciting "awesome" movies are falling into theaters next week, so stay tuned for the next installment of WATERFRONTVIDEOBURL.BLOGSPOT.COM

-Rent them while they're hot-

Grey's Anatomy - 4th Season
Young at Heart
Made of Honor
The Love Guru
Finding Amanda
88 Minutes
Speed Racer

This Saturday, September 13th, Cinema 9 is showing Helvetica (no, sadly that font is not helvetica) at 11:30 a.m as part of the Burlington Book Fair. I know I would be there if I didn't have to work at Waterfront Video during that time. Cause I love words, and in this day and age, if you love words, you must love fonts (unless you've been some kind of crazy neo-luddite since the age of the typewriter). Fonts and Words. What I am trying to say is if you aren't at Helvetica on the 13th, I'd better see you in Waterfront Video on Saturday. Because, really, what kind of enjoyable Saturday activity doesn't involve motion pictures?

Speaking of Waterfront Video, here is a map of our store!

Goodbye to our dear employee Mary as she steals away for the west coast. This blog post is dedicated to her bright (and rainy) future in Seattle.

Goodbyes, like break-ups, are hard to do but easy to sing about. Just ask Phil Collins. Or ask these movies with "Goodbye" in the title.

Goodbye Lenin!
Goodbye, Mr. Chips
Long Goodbye
Long Kiss Goodnight

And when Mary invites all of the other staff members at Waterfront Video out to stay at her place in Washington, we'll bring all of these Pacific Northwest themed titles. Every single one of them.
