E-mails came in and I'm taking a page from C.I.'s book and using those for an entry when I'm tired and can't come up with a different one.
Rachel: How far in advance do you plan your movie pieces?
Not far at all. They can and do change. It's usually based on what I saw most recently that made the strongest impression. Tomorrow will be a Michelle Pfeiffer film or a film by a director C.I. recommended to me and figured I would love. (I did.)
That could change when I get ready for bed tonight and pop something in to watch.
So, no, no great plan.
E.W.: Do you do requests?
No. But you can make a suggestion. I don't like to plan ahead like that. It's tough and I also don't like to do requests because I might not be able to write about a film or feel like. But you can make a suggestion. Especially of an older film. There are a lot of older films I love that I'd love to write about and if someone else loves them that would be reason enough for me to.
Lonnie: What's your all time favorite movie?
Tough and I can't give you a fixed answer. Depends on my mood. I go with "Some Like It Hot" and "Tootsie" tonight. I love both of those films. I love Dorothy Michael best of all the characters in Tootsie and am sad when she ceases to be. ("Because I am not Emily Kimberly, daughter of Alma and Dwayne Kimberly. No, I'm not. I'm Edward Kimberly!")
I really love Tootsie.. The only thing that bothers me some is that long Stephen Bishop interlude. There are times when I watch the film and that section goes on way too long. Other times I enjoy it.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
