Shocking though it might seem, I actually let Olympic Central and hit the town. Mind you, it was to go to the Writers Guild Theatre to sit and watch a movie, so the activity was not all that much different. But it's the thought and activity of movement and subject matter than counts.
What got me to leave was that the Guild was screening The Monuments Men. I quite liked it. It's a bit disjointed and isn't overly involving, but it's very well done, intelligent, and absolutely wonderfully acted. If they had more scenes of Bill Murray and Bob Balaban together, I'd have forgiven any of its flaws. All the acting was good, as I said, but they were an especial joy. I hope someone finds another project for them.
By the way, an update-ish reminder. I mentioned the other day that NBC is supposed to have a featurette with Tom Brokaw about the movie version of the novel, Unbroken. I said that I'd guessed it would be run during primetime, but I've revised my thought. The network seems to be running most of its features during the afternoon segment, which today is between 3pm to 6pm. I could be tonight, but I'm laying my cash money on earlier.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
