Movies

Blood Work. This movie was entertaining enough, but not one of Eastwood's better efforts. I did enjoy the fact that he owned up to his age and played an aging cop in poor health -- a nice touch of reality rarely seen in Hollywood films (yesterday I saw in The Onion: "Woody Allen's Third Wife Born").

In one scene, Eastwood is interviewing a computer programmer in his cubicle. On the shelf behind the programmer is a copy of RHL 6.1. That's nice, but even nicer is that there is also a copy of the autobook. It is blurry, but I like to think that's what it is.

American Astronaut . I went to see this again last night. This time Cory McAbee was in town to promote it. He also gave a concert (I didn't attend). He's an interesting and charismatic guy. Anyway, I learned some things about the movie, and I always like hearing from the directors and learning about their processes.
