Died Tragically Rescuing His Family From The Remains Of A Destroyed Sinking Battleship

The Royal Tenenbaums is definitely one of my favorite films. I own the Criterion Collection version, and I have seen the film possibly 25 times.

I am including some links for you, if you want to learn more.








Since I don't have anything but sub-basic cable (Which means, I get the local stations, ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX, plus a Christian station, Public Television, some kind of Classical Music channel, Local Origination, which is different than Local Access, A Shopping Network, CSPAN, and finally TBS, and WGN, which is the big local in Chicago, some 7 hours away from here by plane.) I really don't have much to watch.

So I have been watching a lot of my old DVDs and VHS movies when bored, and recently I pulled out my old favorite, the Tenenbaums.

This movie is wonderful, and reminds me of JD SALINGERS Franny and Zoey, in that the Glass Family in that book were young genius's, as were the Tenenbaum children. The characters are fun, not too complex, and very interesting. Abut most of all, I love the film making, the cinematography, and the soundtrack. As a film, this one is flawless in my mind. But I have simple desires when it comes to films, so don't judge me too harshly.

If you have not seen it, please go out and rent it, and if you have, think about seeing it again. It is a fun distraction from the world in which we live, and has plenty of laughs.

It might also inspire your creativity for Halloween costumes this year!

Until next time...
