Posted on March 16, 2011 | 3 CommentsRelease Year: 1972 / Director: George Roy Hill / Writers: Kurt Vonnegut Jr. (novel), Stephen Geller (screenplay) /Stars: Michael Sacks, Ron Leibman, and Eugene Roche The film I chose for this week’s installment of “Old Movie / Young Eyes” has some sentimental value to me, as Slaughterhouse-Five was the...
Posted on July 8, 2010 | 6 CommentsI picked up “Pattern Recognition” after being away from the works of William Gibson since, I don’t know, probably “Mona Lisa Overdrive.” It wasn’t an intentional split — my reading habits are really more like phases, and I think I went into an essayist phase...
Posted on July 1, 2010 | 6 CommentsSo I (and by extension, this column) vanished for a couple of weeks. Sorry about that — I got busy with a bunch of other book stuff, but I’m back now. At least it had to do with books, right? This week’s book you really...
Posted on June 10, 2010 | 7 CommentsRichard Matheson. I love the guy. Chances are, you do too, even if you don’t know it. You’ve probably seen at least one thing he was responsible for — Stir of Echoes, The Incredible Shrinking Man, What Dreams May Come, Somewhere In Time. . ....
Posted on June 3, 2010 | 5 CommentsGo ahead. Try to find a picture of Tom Wolfe not in a suit. Sure, you might find one from pre-1962 where the suit wasn’t white, but I’ve never seen one where the guy was dressed down. The suit has nothing to do with this...
Posted on May 28, 2010 | 6 CommentsYou know how, every once in a while, you’re assigned a book to read for class? It’s pretty rare you actually enjoy it. It’s even rarer when that assignment introduces you to one of your favorite authors ever. But that’s what happened to me. My...
Posted on May 19, 2010 | 2 CommentsYou’re probably familiar with this week’s book, but my guess is you haven’t sat down and actually read it. This is one of those where “seeing the movie is close enough” is a pretty common sentiment, and I’ll half-agree with that — the 2001 film...
Posted on May 12, 2010 | 9 CommentsHave you seen this man? In the world of reclusive authors, there’s Thomas Pynchon, and then there’s everyone else. I’d wanted to attempt a Pynchon novel for quite some time, as I’d heard they were “surreal,” “trippy,” “difficult,” and other “adjectives.” Still, it was never...
Posted on May 5, 2010 | 2 CommentsI’m not, by any stretch of the imagination, a sports guy. Sure, I like hockey and boxing, but that’s about it. I’ve fallen asleep at a college football game or two. My wife has seen me watch Hulu on my laptop while she’s watching the...
Posted on April 26, 2010 | 5 CommentsAny attempt to summarize the plot of this book will make me sound like a crazy person. Don’t believe me? Try this on, then: This book is about an in-depth criticism of a film that probably doesn’t exist. Even if the film does exist, the...
