King Corn Screening Tonight at COCC

Do you eat corn? Yes? Well, have I got a movie for you. Have fun sleeping after this, corn-lover!

Slow Food High Desert is screening King Corn tonight at COCC - Grandview Hall at 6:30 p.m.  You'll learn all sorts of facts about genetically modified seeds, the fast-food industry's addiction to corn, harmful fertilizers and pesticides, and a giant evil cornstalk that comes out at night and hunts children. Okay, not that last part. But the other stuff is pretty scary too.

The film will be screened as part of Slow Food High Desert's monthly potluck and film night, so bring a dish to share. One caveat: don't use corn. Duh.

Upcoming BendFilm Screenings at Sisters Movie House

Posted By on Wed, Feb 2, 2011 at 8:51 PM

We just got word that BendFilm will be screening two films in the next month at Sisters Movie House.


 

First up is Lovely, Still on February 17 at 7 p.m. Billed as a December-December romance, Lovely, Still stars Martin Landau and Ellen Burnstyn, who is so amazing that she could spin around in circles for an entire movie and I'd probably still love it. The film has made the rounds at major film festivals across the country, garnering awards including Best Actor and Director at the California Film Festival. Judging from the trailer, it looks like it might be a tearjerker so bring your tissues. 

Bicycle Dreams

Second is Bicycle Dreams, on March 3rd at 6:45 p.m. Another film festival circuit favorite, about the 3,000-mile-long race from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific. According to the website, it's considered the most difficult sporting event in the world, and top riders finish in ten days. Ten days. After being blown away by the athletes in Hood to Coast, which BendFilm recently screened at the Old Mill Regal 16, I can't image what kind of turmoil these athletes will be put through. 

Both shows are $10.

Darkside of the Rainbow: Oz meets Floyd at the Tower tonight

Posted By on Sat, Jan 22, 2011 at 8:30 PM

As we mentioned on this blog earlier in the week, BendFilm and the Tower Theatre are presenting The Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon playing over the soundtrack.

If you don't know already, these two pieces of art (allegedly) sync up perfectly for the most cosmic hippie freak out of all time. Or maybe they don't. Either way, this FREE event should be fun.

It begins at 10pm tonight and again, it's free!

If you want to get academic about this urban legend, check out this treatise on the subject.

The Big Lebowski Costume Winners

At a screening of "The Big Lebowski" in Bend, Oregon, these folks won the costume contest.

Posted By on Sun, Jan 9, 2011 at 7:31 AM

If you weren't there at the Tower tonight to watch The Big Lebowski with 400-something other people who may have become your new best friends, you also missed an incredible costume contest, which kicked off the weirdly, awesomely, justifiably well-attended (and sold-out) event.

Here are a couple videos from the Walter and Dude categories of the contest. Sadly, I didn't capture any images of the "freestyle" competition, which included a Big Lebowski, complete with wheel chair and Phillip-Seymour-Hoffman lookalike assistant. Seriously.

The Big Lebowski Screening at the Tower Theatre is Sold Out

The first-ever Lebowski screening at the Tower Theatre in Bend is sold out.

This week's issue of the Source features plenty of material on The Big Lebowski, including this essay in which I brazenly denounce anyone who doesn't enjoy that film.

There's been plenty of buzz about tomorrow (Saturday) night's screening of the classic film, which is probably why it was recently announced that the screening is totally sold out. Yeah, there's no more tickets -- so if you put together your bathrobe and sunglasses get up, but never got around to getting a ticket, that's a bummer, man.

For those who did use foresight with this, we're excited to see you out there -- hopefully in costume. White Russians will be served, FYI.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest Opens at Pilot Butte on Friday

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, the third and final chapter in the series is opening at Pilot Butte 6 on Friday.

Posted By on Thu, Nov 18, 2010 at 11:18 PM

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's NestFans of Stieg Larsson's Millenium Series and the Swedish film adaptions can rejoice: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, the third and final chapter in the series is opening at Pilot Butte 6 on Friday. I received the screener this week, so you can count on reading the review in next week's paper and online. Though, I've never read the books, I have enjoyed watching the films and am excited to see how the series wraps up.

Noomi Rapace reprises her role as the film's badass leading lady Lisbeth Salander and is joined again by co-star Michael Nyqvist as Mikael Blomkvist. When we last saw Lisbeth at the end of The Girl Who Played With Fire she wasn't in the best shape, and the third film find her recovering in the hospital, awaiting trial for the three murders she's been accused of. Mikael must find a way to prove her innocence, and Lisbeth must be willing to share her tortured experiences.

Those hoping to see Rapace cross-over from Sweden to Hollywood are in luck, as the actress is filming a role in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes sequel with Robert Downey Jr. As for the American remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, I'm eager to see how Rooney Mara does in filling Rapace's shoes as the new Lisbeth.

Check back next week for my full review, and in the meantime check out the trailer for The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.
