My Week in Movies

I’ve been pretty distracted with job stuff this week, so not much time to blog or to watch too many movies that aren’t related to work, but just wanted to remind myself to show some clips from an Oscar Micheaux film in class next week to conclude my discussion of early cinema. So far, I’ve been pleased with the dicussion of early cinema, especially the student responses to Georges Melies’s A Trip to the Moon.

In completely unrelated film news, rumor has it that DeNiro and Scorsese, attempting to recapture their 1970s mojo, are contemplating a sequel to Taxi Driver. No word yet whether the film’s title will be Meet the Bickles.

    ROTFLMAO at “Meet the Bickles.”

    Even better than “The Graduate 2” proposed in “The Player.”

    They should title it 37 Push Ups after the Smog song that goes “I feel like Travis Bickle/ I’m listenin’ to Highway to Hell“.
