You-review-it Monday

For me, the weekend included stops at the new gallery at the Stutz Building, a visit to the art spaces at the Murphy Art Center in Fountain Square, and finally exposing my two youngest kids to the movie “Hoosiers” — which made me wonder what Gene Hackman has been up to lately.

He’s been lying pretty low since “Welcome to Mooseport” in 2004. (For great, lesser-known Hackman performances, check out 1985’s “Twice in a Lifetime” and 1983’s “Under Fire.”)

A review of at least one of the art shows will be in my upcoming column in the print edition of IBJ.

So what did you do this weekend? Get to the final days of “My Fair Lady” at Clowes? Experience First Friday? Catch “Thoroughly Modern Millie” or “The Laramie Project” or Larry the Cable Guy?

Speak up. Share.

  • We saw The Bank Job yesterday - good movie but very violent. We were expecting a fast-paced,somewhat light-hearted caper movie and got something much more intense. The movie's last third is especially violent and somewhat disturbing, but the writing is excellent.

    For English history buffs, the film was based on the true story of the Baker Street robbery in London.
  • I finally saw Juno yesterday. While I liked it, I didn't think it quite lived up to all the hype. It felt like it was trying too hard to be hip/cool/weird. I'm not saying it was bad, just not as good as I believed it would be. I'm finding that about most movies that are hyped up. There are so few that actually live up to it.
  • I saw and enjoyed Jane Eyre at Footlite and Throughly Modern Millie at Civic. I blogged about one already and will blog about the other one soon.

    I also read HOME SCHOOL, by Charles Webb (2007). This is the long-awaited sequel to THE GRADUATE, which I have not read, but I sort of remember the movie. This is a fast, funny, frustrating read: oh, these crazy, crazy people!

    I also started reading ONE HELLUVA RIDE: HOW NASCAR SWEPT THE NATION, by Liz Clarke (2008). I am probably more interested in reading about what it is like to be a woman sportswriter, but I think the racing info itself will be interesting, too.

  1. Why should I a home owner pay for this"car sharing" ????

  2. By the way, the right to work law is intended to prevent forced union membership, not as a way to keep workers in bondage as you make it sound, Italiano. If union leadership would spend all of their funding on the workers, who they are supposed to be representing, instead of trying to buy political favor and living lavish lifestyles as a result of the forced membership, this law would never had been necessary.

  3. Unions once served a noble purpose before greed and apathy took over. Now most unions are just as bad or even worse than the ills they sought to correct. I don't believe I have seen a positive comment posted by you. If you don't like the way things are done here, why do you live here? It would seem a more liberal environment like New York or California would suit you better?

  4. just to clear it up... Straight No Chaser is an a capella group that formed at IU. They've toured nationally typically doing a capella arangements of everything from Old Songbook Standards to current hits on the radio.

  5. This surprises you? Mayor Marine pulled the same crap whenhe levered the assets of the water co up by half a billion $$$ then he created his GRAFTER PROGRAM called REBUILDINDY. That program did not do anything for the Ratepayors Water Infrastructure Assets except encumber them and FORCE invitable higher water and sewer rates on Ratepayors to cover debt coverage on the dough he stole FROM THE PUBLIC TRUST. The guy is morally bankrupt to the average taxpayer and Ratepayor.
