Books & Film
Hey, folks, I'm in the mood to post this, so here I am. I recognize the fact that most people really like Ben Affleck's most recent movie, The Town, and I would've wanted to like it, too, but imho, there's too much wrong with The Town for me not to look at this film with much harsher judgement and a much more critical eye than many, if not most people.

Will put it back soon. Need to restore from backup.
I’m pretty much a lone voice in the wilderness here, as I feel differently about The Town than many, if not most people do. Moreover, I read Chuck Hogan’s novel, Prince of Thieves, on which The Town was based, and I liked the book far better than the movie, which seemed like an extended made-for-TV feature and a very cartoon-like film. The Town had the potential for being a very good film, or one of the all-time greats regarding movies, but fell woefully short of that potential for the following reasons:

So we went to Barnes and Noble the other day, and I'm sitting on the ground in the children's section with my 8-month old baby looking for a book to read to him. I take my eye off him for a minute or two and when I look back he's reached into one of the lower shelves, pulled off a Spongebob paperback, and is chewing on it. It's one of those cheapo books, with the pages only slightly thicker than newspaper, so by the time I notice we're the proud soon-to-be owners of this $3.99 treasure.
The Black Swan , by Nassim Nicholas Taleb is an engaging book about an important topic. However, if a reader who is familiar with the topic(s) will not find any new ideas.
Today, I’ve decided to take a break from the rough-and-tumble world of domestic and international politics and write different kind of essay; on movies.
I went to see “Sizzle: A Global Warming Comedy” at the Woods Hole Film Festival this weekend. It is billed as a mockumentary/reality/documentary hybrid, and is basically a film about making a documentary about Global Warming.
