Switched to movie mode today, more or less (there was also football involved - much better on fantasy this week, and OUAT - um...what?). It literally took years, but I finally finished watching '2001: A Space Odyssey'. I've tried to watch it before without getting more than a few minutes into section 2. The last several weeks I've been watching 10 minutes here or there. At long last, I finished it today. And boy was it a chore. I didn't get it and I didn't like it (other than the music). But it has been seen.

Meanwhile, believe it or not, this Baltimorean has never seen 'Diner'. Bits here and there, but less than half of it total and never in order. By chance I saw it was on last night (on PBS, of all places) and recorded it. It was thoroughly bleeped, but otherwise legit. Naturally I spent half the movie playing spot the location (the horse farm where Boogie tries to pick up the rider is right by my brother's in-laws place; the Tudor-style building across from the manger is near the office and contains the office's bank.) It was perfectly acceptable as a movie, but not up to the reputation it seems to hold around here. Filming in Baltimore isn't unusual anymore and frankly, 'Diner' is a film for guys. But the music was great, again.

I've never seen Diner, and I'm a home-grown Baltimorean.
