|05.21.06||Alamo Downtown|| An alamo event with live score supplied by local band Django's Mustache... It was a much better fit than Fantastic Planet set to random Chicago tunes but it still felt like the band just played their songs to the movie, pairing sad songs with sad scenes and happy songs with happy scenes. Since it was a trio with jazz guitar, rhythm guitar, and tuba the sound "fit" well enough with the movie but it still didn't compare to White Ghost Shivers' score to Sherlock, Jr. and Cops. Plus it helps that I am a much bigger Keaton fan than Lloyd but oh well, tonight was still fun and pretty unique.|
The movie has its moments. The end chase scene is really well done and there are several cool gags going on... actually the movie's pretty good, i should give it more credit. It certainly held my attention for 80 minutes and got a few laughs out of me. What I thought most funny though was that there were a few White Ghost Shivers that sat next to me for the movie. I was pretty close to the front of the theater so I didn't want to put down the band and have them overhear me but I really wanted to lean over and tell them that they did a much better job.
