Movie Review: Untraceable

Last night we went to see the movie, Untraceable, starring Diane Lane as a Portland-based FBI agent trying to nab a guy who is committing some sick, sick crimes streaming live online… So, thriller. The real thrill was seeing all of the Portland scenes! The people to the right of us were whispering to each other through the whole movie, but I didn’t mind..because I’m sure they were just pointing out familiar places to each other…like B and I were 🙂 How was the movie? Diane Lanes best work since Must Love Dogs. Read that however you will…
If you live in Portland you must go see this movie though. There’s a flyover shot of the Broadway bridge going westbound. Where the lanes peel off to the left and right…we live to the right! Also, someone from Sellwood gets the ax. Our favorite breakfast place, Fat Alberts, is in Sellwood. Creepy.
There’s also a scene where its raining on the Broadway Bridge. When they shot it they had to make Hollywood ‘rain’. Hello…When is it not raining on the Broadway Bridge?

Power in Numbers

Well, we got a white christmas this year! I took a grainy video of the snow coming down, but its so grainy, you can’t see the snow…so I won’t subject you to that…
Portland was quite the place to be for the holidays. We had the night of a hundred Santas – something to do with Santacon? We hadn’t heard of it and were ‘startled’ to say the least, by the number of intoxicated Santas we saw on the way home…when we got to our stop, low and behold! it was also a ‘meeting spot’ for the Santas – I snapped a pic then hurried inside:

Speaking of cheer in volumes…we also got to take in a little caroling with about 250 tubas…at Pioneer Square

On Christmas night we ended up watching The Big Lebowski at the Clinton Street Theater. We were at the 4pm show…Had we gone to the 7pm show we could have had White Russians with our movie! Maybe next year 🙂
