Walk The Line - Friday Night: Dinner and a Movie

Dinner at the usual place: Apple Baked Pork Chops and Rigatoni. Are you noticing a pattern here?

My wife thought that this would be a chick flick because of Joaquin Phoenix, but it was like all the guys came back from deer camp to see this movie. In fact there was the distinct flavor of spilled gasoline on workboots in our end of the theater.

The movie covers twenty years, marriage and divorce, drug addiction and arrest, and many groupies in Johnny Cash's early years. It covers the obvious physical interaction between John and June in their relationship and one can see the small cuts of the scenes that describe the foundation of their love like the 10 second cut involving the Friendship Baptist Church.

Oh, and I loved Momma Maybelle with the shotgun helping to run off the drug dealer.

Alex Baldwin does not play a villain in this movie either. Robert Paterick (T-2000) plays Johnny Cash's hard drinking father.

New previews: Tristan & Isolde due out Feb 3rd.

Update: Did anyone else notice Acidman as one of the inmates in Folsum Prison.
