Second trailer for new Spiderman movie this summer is out. It contains spoiler so if you haven't seen Avengers yet and have somehow been successful in avoiding spoilers, don't watch the new trailer.

Anybody see VICE (on Dick Cheney)?
Not sure if I'm pre-disposed or how much of a comedy it was supposed to be. But they definitely misrepresented the facts and also just made shit up for their own agenda. But in a vacuum it had some good writing.

One of my buddy's who is a California Silicon Valley attorney who is liberal as fuck hated it more than I did. Said it was completely inaccurate.

Only thing I didn’t like is it’s lefty propaganda vibe. But the dark comedy, acting and pace was great I thought

It was great on so many levels, already watched it twice.

I was recently credited as an Executive Producer on my first major film project. One more and I to can join the PGA! First one was about the late Stiv Bators and the second may be about the late Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones.
I started as an EP investor of films...nobody cares about the EP! Now I work in film/TV production. Nobody cares about me now, either! lol

I care about the art, especially if the checks keep coming. ;)

If you made back your principal, you beat the odds.
Well, the great thing about doing docs on... a-hem...unavailable celebrities is that their fame is proliferated by many pirates. We did a vinyl run on Record Store Day and it sold out and alt venues buy the film for screenings. Good legs on these projects

Any anime fans in the house? I am not, but one of my boys are; tonight we are going to see something called Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. It is the film's 35th Anniversary and AMC is showing it in one of their theatres.

I like anime artwork. My favorite Japanese animated series was Cat Shit One. Not anime, but Manga. The first one was SOF bunnies killing Al Qaeda Camels in Afghanistan. I understand they have a new one, Cat Shit One 80, about a recon team of animals in Vietnam.

Barely started War Machine on my last Trainer ride and it's great. Sounds exactly like McChrystal in a lot of ways and the narration is beyond humorous.

How did you like it? If you're a fan, Studio Ghibli makes some really neat films. Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro are some of my all time favorite films. Studio Ghibli also collaborated on a game called 'Ni No Kuni: The Wrath of the White Witch", the game should be on the PlayStation network.

It was weird. But...my 16 year old anime fan said:

- I liked it because it had a cool story.

- I liked that they moved around a lot (settings)

- I liked the classic voice work

- I liked the softer drawing of the 80's

- He recognized Studio ghibhi and told me it was responsible for putting out some of the best anime films.

I have a friend who enjoys anime so I might start watching more.

Miyazaki is tits. This one not so much IMO but all good. Classics are My Friend Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle (both good, last one has some action). Also Spirited Away. Once you've seen the mainstream ones like these there's one about a pilot who is turned into a pig (Poco? It's good), but the real hidden gym is 'Wolf Children', or something like that. Most of them have so much character and story content, probably best animated stuff ever. Better than a lot of 'real' movies.
