'That Moment - The Making of Magnolia' 

Great documentary on the making of Magnolia; the amazing, underrated 1999 film by Paul Thomas Anderson. Originally included as a bonus feature on the Magnolia DVD release, the documentary gives the viewer a unique look into the filmmaking process from pre-production through its theatrical release. Why is this better than other ‘making of’ documentaries? From a filmmaking perspective, there isn’t anything really unique about the documentary. What makes it great is it provides a intimate perspective into the mind of one of the best filmmakers making movies today: Paul Thomas Anderson. A man still in his creative prime and whose best work may very well be ahead of him. Magnolia was his follow-up to 1997’s Boogie Nights; the acclaimed film Anderson wrote and directed at the very ripe age of twenty-seven. It will be interesting to see if his next move Inherent Vice (adapted from Thomas Pynchon’s novel and starring Robert Downey Jr), holds up relative to the high quality of his previous work. We’ll find out when its released on December 12th of this year.

Pat Sajak vs. The Global Warming ‘Alarmists’

image

Wow, thank you Pat Sajak for finally clearing the air (pun intended) about the ongoing global warming/climate change debate. There’s nothing quite like having the game show host set the record straight for all us knuckleheads out there. Thanks for clueing us in Pat! Leave it to the game show host to label everyone with an opinion differing from his own as ‘unpatriotic racists,’ scheming and plotting to deceive the world for their own personal gains. 

I know this is a highly debatable, hot-button issue and has been for years now. There’s evidence supporting and conflicting with the global warming/climate change argument. I’m not going to pretend to know enough about the issue to have an opinion either way. Much less, voice a very polarizing and hard-lined opinion on a public forum like Twitter after reading a couple one-sided articles or a book on global warming, probably about as much research as Pat Sajak’s done on the matter. Especially if I’m a public figure with 30+ years under my belt as the host of the game show that’s kind of like a glorified version of Hangman, that game you probably played with your friends when you were in the 2nd grade. Only in this version, you spin a wheel with different numbers on it before you guess the missing letters, so they aptly named it “Wheel of Fortune.” 

If he really feels so strongly and is so well-versed on the issue, one would think he’d have the self-awareness and wisdom to know any opinion from the game show host is probably going to be made a mockery of (kind of like I’m doing right now) and quickly dismissed. Nice job doing more harm than good for a cause you (evidently) feel so strongly about Pat. Thanks again for the laughs!!
