Coming Distractions October 28th, 2008

We's a gonna gets 4 U:

The L Word - 5th Season
Kit Kittredge: An American Girl
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Zombie Strippers

Firstly: the Vermont International Film Festival begins today and we now have schedules for the films at Cinema 9 on the front counter at the video store. I am personally very excited for Let the Right One In (even, I dare say, more excited for that than for Zombie Strippers, if you can believe it). Another intriguing offering: the documentary Flow: For the Love of Water.

Congratulations to Chris & Mike for each winning a pair of tickets to see the Spaghetti Western Orchestra at the Flynn Theater on Monday! 5 musicians playing up to 100 instruments, celebrating Ennio Morricone's soundtracks for Sergio Leone.

In case you hadn't been in the store yet to see: this past Tuesday we documentaries, lots of documentaries! (the numbers are upwards of a dozen and downwards of two sets of ten!) Some highlights include:
Constantine's Sword
Fall From Grace
Cinematographer Style
Palestine Blues
Jack Smith and the Destruction of Atlantis
Critical Condition

We do it just to prove learning can be fun, and that our sign about movies making you a better person isn't just a marketing ploy. It works, right? Please leave comments as to what personal affirmations we could include on our signage that would make you want to rent more movies.

Here's one sample: You're Beautiful. Rent Some Movies.

You know what your problem is, it's that you haven't seen enough movies - all of life's riddles are answered in the movies.

You can map your life through your favorite movies, and no two people's maps will be the same.
