Oh great, the week that Bogus Gold links this film series turns out to be a week when I’ve been behind the 8-ball at work and tied up at home. As such I haven’t gotten all the way through this week’s film, a 3-hour version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped.
I’ve got the day off to do birthday things with Tiger Lilly, but we’re just about to go to Barnes & Noble for her present — a shopping spree! That will keep her occupied afterwards for a little while (she reads at a faster wpm than I do!) and I hope to finish this week’s film.
For what it’s worth, I’m seriously thinking about re-starting a version of the Fundamentals in Film class that was the genesis for this series a couple of years ago. There’s another crop of young teen boys that have come along and I have an idea for a regular (perhaps as often as bi-weekly) father/son hoagie-and-a-movie (plus discussion) gathering. Guests or regular participants outside our group will be welcome. If you’d like to get on a mailing list for upcoming movies and times leave a comment or email me and I’ll be happy to keep you in the loop as I try to get this going.
