I’m getting behind on my movie-tracking already.
I had an interesting job nibble a couple of weeks ago, tangentially related to a singing group from a past era. No idea if it will manifest, but just in case, I watched a couple of movies that I figured might inform either the structure or the subject matter of a hypothetical script. These were:
The Temptations: This was originally a two-mini series based on a book by founding member, Otis Williams.
Twenty Feet from Stardom: I got the screener for this documentary through the voting process for the Independent Spirit Awards. Much of it is devoted to the back-up singers of the fifties, sixties and seventies.
And finally, Paul and I actually went to a movie theater (!), and saw the Lego Movie. Many of our friends (and our niece and nephew) really loved this movie. I thought it was okay. It would take a disproportionate amount of energy to make coherent argument of all the reasons why, but this woman’s review poses some interesting questions.
