I saw Christopher Walken on Friday. He walked right by me. I didn’t want to bother him while he was eating. The other patrons of the bar I was at went off on the usual quoteathon that happens when you see celebrities, namely “MORE COWBELL!! HUUUUUUUURRR!” I was just satisfied that he was in the same bar as I was.
That night I watched a documentary on Terry Gilliam’s attempt at making “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” called “Lost in La Mancha“. I enjoy Gilliam’s films, and it was interesting to watch a total disaster of a film being made. In the end, the film doesn’t get made due to all the difficulties they came across during filming.
Saturday night we went out to dinner with my in-laws for Katie’s other sister, since she wasn’t able to attend Wednesday’s dinner. Afterwards I went out to Dave’s and watched the hockey game, and had a few beers.
Sunday I saw “The Hangover” which I thought was actually really funny. I had heard about it a few weeks earlier and that it was supposed to be good, but the trailers for the film started to make me doubt that. With lowered expectations, it was really enjoyable, and even darker than I thought it would be.
Sometime during the weekend, I also watched a Godfrey Ho film called “US Catman: Lethal Track” which was another Godfrey Ho special where he basically mashes up two films that have nothing to do with each other. Since one half of the film is usually in a foreign language, the actors are dubbed to fit whatever happens in the English half of the film. Unfortunately, the Thai half of the film is godawful, but the English part is tolerable and funny in the unintentional way.
I’m trying to figure out when I can watch the Mike Tyson documentary that came out recently, and I also have a Luna documentary I want to get to.
