Movie Diary 7/29/2009

Julie and Julia (Nora Ephron, 2009). Yes, it was 102 degrees today. This is not what I meant at all. Plenty of security people to “wand” moviegoers as we filed into the theater and to peep through infrared goggles at the audience during the film, but not enough manpower to fix the air conditioning, although it worked fine in the other rooms of the theater. (And what an audience – it really is something to see a film in 2009 with a group that apparently has not seen a movie before.) This screws up the whole beautiful plan of how an evening like this could roll out (see previous posting). This will not do. As for the movie, when it is not about Julia Child, it is about how awesome it is to be a blogger. (full review 8/7)
