Two Dilemmas and Some New Movie Reviews.

By: The Dude on the Right
I have two dilemmas I am dealing with right now, both of which I hope to remember to discuss with Stu Gotz during our "Weekend Wrap-Up" podcast tomorrow.  Well, one I will definitely discuss with him, and that simply has to do with having a podcast that really isn't for the kids.  No, we aren't going to have any strippers or porn stars in the studio discussing perverted sex acts or how they were molested as children, although Stu would probably welcome that.  Nope, I'll leave that to the kings of those who do that.  In any case I heard a new song on the radio this weekend.  Nope, it wasn't on an FM nor an AM station, it was on satellite radio, Sirius as a matter of fact, and it's a pretty blunt song about Connecticut.  The thing is I laughed my ass off during the song, and I'd like to play some clips for Stu, as well as some clips from some of the band's other songs.  I'm not sure if I want to go there, namely risqué songs, but I think Stu will appreciate the songs, for the campy feel they are worth.

My other dilemma has to do with movie theater loyalty.  I don't think Stu has this issue, but for the past many years I have been a steady patron of our AMC theater sort of near my dude-pad.  It was a little further away than some of my other local theaters, but it was the only one with stadium seating, had a huge variety of times movies would be playing, had great online ticketing that didn't charge you anything if you were a MovieWatcher member, and even gave you free stuff (popcorn, sody-pop, and movies) and other bonuses if you were also a said member of said MovieWatcher program.  But another movie theater has opened, much closer to me, and at slightly cheaper prices.  The problem I have is they don't have free online ticketing, the movie screen isn't as enveloping, and as far as I know, no free stuff for patronizing them.  The benefit is that the seats are a little more comfortable and bouncy, and they stock Raisinets.  I suppose I might have to do a statistical analysis of the pros and cons of both theaters, but man, the five minute travel time versus the 20 minute travel time is a huge issue, although without that travel time, I wouldn't have heard said song I eluded to in my first paragraph of this plight had I gone to the closer theater on Saturday.  Who knew going to the movies could be so complicated?

On the simpler of things, I did catch "Nacho Libre" and "The Lake House" this weekend.  I'll talk to Stu about them as well, but feel free to read the reviews in the meantime.  There's a few more movie previews posted, with a few more to come in the next couple of days, and then finally I should be all caught up in getting my movie previews done.  My next step is to get back to some concert reviewing, some CD reviewing I've been promising for awhile, and even some DVD's.  My summer is looking very busy, and hopefully very fun.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

What's New? A Movie Review of "The Lake House."

For this movie review of "The Lake House," The Dude on the Right is a sap for a good romance, likes time travel and magic mailboxes, but wonders if Alex might have gotten a ticket because he doesn't think his truck had the proper license plate on it. Even so, he still liked the movie.
