Have you seen it? It's in this small, quaint town just outside of my city, and they mention my city in it too, apparently.

For the past ten years there's been a bigger trend toward filming in Canada. Well, until our dollar rose in value. Or yours fell. Whatever. Anyway, my point it that usually locations around here are shown very briefly, and, they're usually crap movies. It's neat to have an actual, quality movie filmed here.

Several years ago, they closed several streets of our downtown to film exterior locations for the movie Silent Hill. That was a source of pride. Our downtown was so decayed that it stood in for a hellish, apocalyptic place. Since then, they've started a downtown revitalization, so it's only 50% as hellish as it was then.

Oh, sorry about that. I wasn't aware that award shows aired late out there. I won't talk any more about winners.

I have not seen it, no.

Imagine how we in The Bronx felt when "Fort Apache, The Bronx" was released. Tourism was sure to skyrocket.

The only thing we get live out here is the Oscars.

Which, frankly, makes it all worth it, being able to watch it and be done before 9-10:00.

I also figured that probably not many people gave a rat's ass about the SAG Awards.


NSW, given the places you've lived, filming must be very commonplace for you.

I'm really excited to see Away From Her. The town is really pretty, and there's supposed to be this scene filmed where Christie's character is standing on a bridge, looking onto a river, and the backs of some old, scenic buildings in the downtown. I go over that bridge every time I drive to school. I'm such a dork.

VP, it's common, but to me, it's still very cool.

On the Fox lot, they have a permanent NYC exterior set up, and every time they shot something and I was nearby, I'd stop and watch. It never lost its wonder for me, whereas a lot of other elements of the business did.

I'm definitely going to have to see Away From Her once it's on DVD.

I'm usually not all that hepped up about the SAG awards, but since we didn't get the Golden Globes and the Oscars are up in the air, I'd better watch, just in case this is the one awards show we get to see!

I only got to see the last 15 minutes of it, I didn't even realize it was televised.

The only one of those songs I've heard yet is Golden Years. That one got cut by the 80 minute limit. Maybe I can use the single version Young Americans or something and squeeze it in.

I'm getting there.

Confession: I still cry at the end of Titanic. And sometimes in other parts, too.

I cried at the end of Titanic, because at the time I did not have a lot of disposal income, and could not believe I had to pay to watch that.

They film in my area from time to time, most recently with the movie the Chambers brothers are making about Immaculata's women's basketball team.

I'd say more, but I stay anonymous online.

Although I don't cry at it, I don't think Titanic is that bad of a movie. I think it just suffers backlash because of how insanely huge it got. :wisdom:
