One of the coolest things that Film Streams does is bring live musicians in to perform a score to silent films. Combining the Alloy Orchestra with a Buster Keaton film like The General is the best combination since peanut butter and jelly, Bert and Ernie or Franklin and Bash. On Friday, Sept 18, head down to the Ruth Sokolof Theater at 7 pm. Oh, and make sure you have a ticket (which is $12 for general audience, $10 for students, seniors, teachers and military), or they’ll toss you out like Indiana Jones chucked Nazis off a blimp (“No ticket!”). Okay, they’ll probably be nicer than that, but you should still buy a ticket.

I love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson because I have eyes, ears and a heart. But, Mr. The Rock, you are taking my love for granted by starring in Jungle Cruise, the latest film based on a Disney ride. Where does this end? What won’t they adapt from their theme park? “Coming in 2025: Standing in Line: The Movie.”

If you haven’t seen What We Do in the Shadows, what’s the point of me even writing about film since you won’t listen to me anyway! For real, find it streaming now or buy it on one of those physical drink coasters that you put into something called a “DVD machine.” Because that’s the only way you’ll be as excited as I am that there is going to be a sequel! We don’t know much right now, only that the subject of the faux documentary this time is likely to be the vampires’ nemeses: the werewolves! No one has ever been this excited about vampires and werewolves without making me disgusted!
