The Mystery of The Green Monster Hand

It’s been a few weeks now since I first noticed the Green Monster Hand giving what looks like some kind of a two-finger salute of unknown meaning (I don’t think the fingers are spread apart enough to make it a proper peace sign, but I could be wrong). I can’t say when exactly it went up, but considering I pass by this block (Avenue B between 13th and 14th Streets) almost daily, I think it’s relatively new.

I like it.

This Week’s Must-See Movie: The Prestige!

The Prestige Movie Poster

Yesterday I went to see the film The Prestige, which I’d been REALLY looking forward to seeing for weeks even after reading a lukewarm review in Salon.com. As much as I’m all over Salon.com, that reviewer must be dead from the neck up, because The Prestige rocks. I don’t want to give anything away, because the movie kept me guessing right up until the very last minute. All you need to know is that the story involves two rival magicians (played by the very hot Hugh Jackman and the even hotter Christian Bale) and an illusion known as “The Transported Man” which becomes the obsession of Jackman’s character. David Bowie even gets the chance to flex his impressive thespian muscles in the semi-meaty role of inventor and electrical pioneer Nicola Tesla. Scarlet Johansson is on hand as required eye candy. The film also features gorgeous cinematography, and a pleasingly dark undercurrent which will appeal to all you Halloween enthusiasts out there. I advise you to go see The Prestige as soon as possible.
