I honestly do think I have been more excited for a movie to come out since probably Titanic, oh and maybe Spice World. This Baz Lurhman(Moulin Rougue, Australia) film was basically tailor made for moi. Its an adaptation of my all time favorite book about my favorite era the rolling 20s, by my favorite author F. Scott Fitzgerald, and stars my two favorite actors, Leo and Tobey Maguire(I think you get the picture). There have been tons of film adaptations of this novel, and though I was quite fond of the 1974 film I have been waiting for a film to really do justice to this wonderful novel and really convey what a G, Gatsby was. I am already blown away by the trailer and cannot wait until the film comes out in theaters this Christmas. For once I am actually looking forward to the typical Jewish Christmas tradition of you know movies and Chinese food, well not so much the later part still.

This amazing commercial has been spiraling around on the web but I can’t wait to watch it on a big screen during the big game
Like probably most Angelenos out there, I find myself having a love/hate relationship with the city I call home. I try to keep things chill on the Santa Monica Coast and distance myself from the chaos of downtown. However things are starting to get a little dull over here, which is why one of my resolutions this year was to venture outside of my Santa Monica bubble. I must have been inspired by the British architect Reyner Banham I was introduced to in an art history course last spring by one of the most brilliant professors on the Scripps campus. In this hilariously entertaining 1970’s documentary “Reyner Banham Loves Los Angeles” the English architect/tourguide basically takes you on a wild ride through the city exposing you to some of the most beautiful and fascinating places in L.A. The clip I have posted is just a taste of his tour but I highly recommend watching the entire 50 minutes of the film, trust me you are in for a real treat. Hopefully one day I will grow to love L.A. as much as this cooky Brit did back in the day.
