Can’t wait to see Funny Games at Esquire. It seems odd that a remake would be almost exactly the same as the original made just a few years ago (1997). Then why are you bothering to remake it? I’ve ordered the old version on netflix to make my own comparison. The synopsis has me a little freaked out, so I’m hoping to attend during the day with other people to mitigate any lasting psychological issues.
This weekend, be sure to get out to a Tap Project participating restaurant. They’ll charge you $1 for tap water and it will be donated to UNICEF for their clean water fund. Andy’s Mediterranean Grille is actually matching all contributions they collect, 1 for 1. For every $1 collected, a child will have clean water for 40 days. Come on – you were gonna go out to eat anyway.
