Yes, I’ve been neglecting my poor blog here. I’m a full-time student now and super busy. But I really miss Film & Food and want to help it grow… so here I am again.
If you are bored this weekend, with no plans, or you want to do some hardcore geek-watching, head over to the Albuquerque Convention Center for the Albuquerque Comic Expo (ACE). You can buy tickets at the door and even get a VIP pass for all the events and panels.
My 14-yr old is most excited about seeing “Xander” from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Taylor, who does the U.S. dub for “Ash Ketchum” for Pokemon. She isn’t into Pokemon now but wow, we were uber immersed years ago. We all still have a soft spot in our hearts for Pikachu.
Now, her mom (er, me) is looking forward to the Tromadance NM 10th Anniversary Film Festival.
And please, let us know what you’re watching this weekend!
(Little tip: sometimes Dailymotion embeds require you to reload the page to get it show up.)
One of my favorite movies, even with a glaring continuity error that makes me crazy every time I see it…The Big White!
And lastly, my 14-year-old chose Summer Wars, even though we’ve seen it many many times already. She’s my kid, what can I say!
As a bonus, here is the extremely catchy song from the film:
No Place on Earth is a documentary chronicling the experiences of Ukrainian Jews hiding in a cave for over a year during the Nazi invasion.
Danny Boyle‘s Trance with one of our favorites, Vincent Cassel.
Guess what came in the mail?
Stephen Fung’s Tai Chi Zero, a steampunk kungfu joy ride. It’s on!
Well. We are 7 days (here in this hemisphere, anyway) into 2013. Any movie- or food-related resolutions on your list for this year? Let us know!
I resolve to tackle the very large stack of movies I’ve been collecting over the years but have not taken time to actually view.
I resolve to tackle our Urbanspoon Wishlist and also add to it consistently.
I resolve to see more indie films and locally-made movies.
I resolve to eat seasonally and locally as much as possible.
And with that, I’ll leave you with this cheese-tastic scene from the first film we watched this year, Highlander. There can be only one!
