[SIZE=3]Scorsese by Ebert[/SIZE]

[Image: ijz1v.jpg]


Roger Ebert loved the shit out of Scorsese films. Have you ever had an itch to read every Ebert review of a Scorsese film? Well here's your chance. Added bonus: Repeat reviews, years later, like "Second Thoughts". Downside: Since this is a collection of reviews, there's a lot of repetition of information that we already know.

[SIZE=3]There's A Boy in the Girls' Bathroom by Louis Sachar[/SIZE]

[Image: 5xf5.jpg]


This is probably my favorite book of all-time. I first read it when I was 10 and I immediately started drafting the screenplay for it. As the years have gone by and I've gotten older, I still go back to this book. And as usual, I cried around page 171.

Neg: *Bawls like a baby*
Stranger on the bus: Um... are you okay?
Neg: Yeah *sniff* it's just this book is so fucking good. *Continues reading*

[SIZE=3]Sean's Book by Sean Hughes[/SIZE]

I saw this at a second-hand store and had to pick it up. It's my book. Oh, who's Sean Hughes? Hmm... browse... intro chapter "How To Steal This Book"... purchased.

An excellent collection of poems, prose and essays by British comedian Sean Hughes.


"The truth"

We lie to each other on a daily basis
little white lies to stop emarrassment
big black ones to save face
Multi-colored ones for the variety
We constantly can't face up to the
reality of ourselves
We escape through drugs, TV and religion
The truth seems shallow
we are shallow
we are empty
we are human
This is a foundation
knock it down
start again...
Then you can believe in you
and remember if you're looking for
something that big
it must be staring you in the face.

I love Bruce. Bruce write book. Book is good. Not all Bruce movies good, but book good.

I feel like you're offering me another challenge. :lol: But I don't do thinks half-assed. If I were to do this, I'd do it right. And by that I mean read every review Ebert has ever written. Now that's a real man's challenge.* :lol:

A real crazy man's challenge that is. :lol:


And no, I am not about to read every single review he's ever written. Although it would probably take a hell of a lot less time than watching every single movie ever approved by the MPAA.

That's definitely on my list, maybe in the next batch. I went to a book-signing for that one. I gave the signed book to a co-worker as a "I'm-trying-to-bang-you" gift.

Down Here In The Dark by Lee Thompson

[Image: jseszl.jpg]

Naval gazing horror.
Main character ex-cop is either institutionalized, or trapped a compartment of Hell, or just tweaked up.
He and two companions (keepers - fellow druggies - aspects of his own personality?)
engage in the good fight and follow him battling demons, musicians, zombies, nurses.
Trying to find their way out - if there is such a thing as out.
Subplot about guilt for wrongful death hinted at repeatedly by lethal villains.
Author Thompson creates needlessly obscure narrative, featuring characters unlikeable and, I suppose, perhaps not real.
Dark Fuse has an ambitious publishing schedule of 3-4 books per month, which often means they churn out the clunker now and then.
Horror buffs, be you cozy or gore, seek elsewhere.

Blood Money by Max Collins

[Image: zk0hog.jpg]

Immediate sequel to Bait Money finds Nolan returning to the Family,
managing a small motel with lounge and pool.
An offer if extended for full reinstatement, a larger establishment to manage,
if he pays a hefty "consideration."
All too soon, he learns someone found his stash and fled with it.
Guns are oiled, and the hunt begins.
Another fast moving, hard boiled yarn by a very young Max Allan Collins.
