Totally with you, +Stuart Zlotnik. I can't quite conceive at which point the zip line is there to help versus just throwing your ass off a building, though I'm not sure it would matter to me. That's a big damned building.

This one snuck up on me. Thanks to +Steven Smart for the recommendation as our very first Listener's Choice episode. A great recommendation for a terrific and touching film. 
 
This week on The Next Reel 120: In the Mood for Love

Wong Kar-Wai's sumptuous film "In the Mood for Love" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000 and, while it lost the Palm d'Or, it left an indelible impression on everyone who saw it. A story of a connection between a man and woman who learn their spouses are having an affair, the film deals with their growing friendship as they help each other come to terms with the infidelity. In the process, they also struggle with their own draw to each other. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we discuss the first of our Listener's Choice films. Steven Smart won the drawing and chose this film for us to discuss, and we're thrilled he did because we both fell in love with it. We talk about the nature of the love between the two leads played by Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung and how, on the one hand, the draw they have to each other is never consummated because they don't want to stoop to the level of their spouses, while on the other hand, they both are afraid that it's not what the other person wants so they don't act. We discuss the stunning look of the film, both from a cinematography standpoint as well as costumes and production design, and how the artists behind those elements make the film what it is. And we chat about director Wong Kar-Wai and how he started making one film but ended up with this one (perhaps because he did this without a script?). It's a beautiful film that touched both of us with its art and finesse. We had a wonderful time watching this film and have a great time chatting about it. Tune in!

Beyond Thunderdome is simply terrible. It's an incredible let down after watching the first and second of the series, but +Andy Nelson and I had a great time talking about it this week on the show and I'm now sufficiently ready for Fury Road, as I endeavor to erase Thunderdome from my memory.
 
NEW! This week on #TheNextReel 187: Andy and Pete enter the Thunderdome... but which one survives!

While the first two Mad Max films had so much going for them, it sure seemed like a stumble with the third of the trilogy. But that’s looking at it through today’s eyes because some critics like Roger Ebert sure loved it — he put it on his ’10 Best’ list of 1985! Okay, so George Miller had lost his producing partner, Byron Kennedy, and let George Ogilvie co-direct it with him. Maybe that’s why “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” seems to be a bit of a stumble. Maybe it was the American financing that made it feel less gritty and more… Hollywood. Whatever it was, it’s definitely the lesser of the three films. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we go beyond Thunderdome with Mel Gibson and Tina Turner, continuing our Mad Max series with Miller’s 1985 film. We talk about all of the problems it has, and how Andy still finds it a guilty pleasure while Pete downright hates it. We talk about the great concepts Miller and co-writer Terry Hayes had in putting this story together, but how poorly executed they were — every one of them. We chat about the joy of working with 400 pigs on set and what they had to do to make that work. We discuss the car chase — way too late in the movie for our tastes — and how it works in comparison with those we’ve seen come before. And we deliberate on where we think “Fury Road” will fit chronologically with these first three films. It’s a very problematic film on which we find ourselves split, but it’s a very fun film to talk about. Tune in!

I agree, Thunderdome was terrible.  It will be interesting to see what they do with Fury Road.

Great info graphic! The take away is to have quality posts instead of an quantity of posts.

This has always had a place close to my heart. Not sure I've ever posted it here. A little nostalgia, with a twist of futurism maybe?

After last week of meetings with clients, I managed to secure some personal time in Boulder with two decades of alumni of In The Buff, the a cappella group I was lucky enough to help start. The group is still going strong, and the concert they gave was proof that everything we stood for twenty years ago is still every bit as strong today. Thanks boys — and here's to another 20 years.

Photographer. Writer. Broadcaster. Former feudal lord.
Introduction
I am a photographer, writer, broadcaster and educator. I've spent the last two decades in the media business; first as a journalist, then as a corporate marketing and public relations specialist with a focus in social media for the largest for-profit education concern in the US.

As it turns out, I'm vastly better at working for myself than other people. In addition to client film, video, photography, and design projects, I host of a number of podcasts including The Next Reel, the super-fantastic film podcast; and Taking Control: The Organizing Podcast, followed by hundreds of millions for practical organizing advice. If you're reading this, you should probably subscribe to both right now. I mean seriously, who doesn't like movies? Or getting organized? No one. That's who. 

The rest? I teach graduate marketing and culture courses at Marylhurst University, I'm married with two kids, three cats, and soon, a puppy, but only because the rats died.

This place is a hidden gem. We have two kids in Kung Fu training with Sifu Wally and not only does he work them hard, he is an incredible model of patience and discipline. His ability to motivate and engage kids is an absolute marvel — they love it, they love the experience with him, and they come home exhausted. Could not be happier!
