Our Path Leads to “Hollywood and Highland”
Yesterday marked six-years since Julie and I decided to give “us” a shot and set-out down a long and winding path together. Since our relationship kinda snuck up on us we have never had an official “first date” or other signifier to celebrate so years ago we settled on March 6th as the day we would call our “anniversary.” Not that these things really matter anymore since we have an official Wedding Anniversary that we can now celebrate; I still feel that 6-years was quite a milestone! And I couldn’t be happier with the way things have turned out (and continue to turn-out), and I am tickled pink to think that I’m still learning things about her.
We also walked down to the tourist-choked Hollywood Blvd to catch a showing of “Be Cool” on Sunday. I really, really wanted to like the film since I’m a big fan of “Get Shorty” and the cast of the sequel was filled with great, funny names. I even enjoyed F. Gary Grey’s “The Italian Job” more than the average viewer so I was trying to ignore all the negative reviews that Be Cool was getting. Unfortunately I was disappointed by the dis-jointed and pondering film. The script wasn’t terrible, and the movie was filled with funny performances by great actors, but the film just didn’t “gel” for me. It seemed that each scene was just butted against the one before it. There was no energy in the cutting and the film felt flat and lifeless. I still laughed, but I had little invested in the many characters and their various arcs. So yeah, I recommend waiting for the DVD, even if you are a huge Get Shorty, Travolta, or Uma fan…
