Hello, Dali

Had a chance to catch Terry Gilliam's new movie, "Brothers Grimm" at the Grove tonight.

I like his movies a lot. His ability to bring his visual imagination to life is amazing. And I love the overdone, elaborate look of his pictures. It's something between the surrealism of Salvador Dali and Rococo architecture. (A tour guide in Prague once explained to me that Rococo is simply overdone Baroque. Thankyouverymuch.)

This movie's story was OK, but the look didn't disappoint.

The Grove was jumping tonight because Tony Orlando and Dawn were performing a free concert. Who knew they were still together? Sadly, they were on while I was in the theater.

Thanks to everyone who read my blog in August. I had my best month ever, with over 400 hits. You can check it out for yourself my clicking on the Sitemeter button to the left and then clicking on the Views/Year button.

Tomorrow it's off to Honolulu for USC's first football game of the season on Saturday against the University of Hawaii at the Aloha Bowl.
