(8) Fri Mar 18 2005 21:47 PST A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental: Sumana knows I'm obsessed with the automat, and sent me a bunch of frustratingly-small historical images pertaining to that dys/utopia of restauranteering. I must now see Dark City just for that sleek-looking automat scene. Also, for some reason, vegan cheesecake.
I highly recommend Dark City as a fun movie. The trick to it is to hit mute until you see Keiffer Sutherland pop open his pocket watch. The focus groups must have been really confused by the movie, because they had him basically explain the ending in an initial narration.Those who hear this spoiler hate the movie, and those who do not love it. It's a mad world.
How could you make an automat even more automatic?

No, but I haven't had time to repair it yet. Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion!

Obligatory similar complaint re: Urban Creation Myth.
I love Dark City, but heard the spoilering on my first viewing. The trick is to develop a horrifically bad memory, such that by the time the ending comes around (or, indeed, the first five minutes have elapsed) you've utterly forgotten the opening monologue.

I can't fix Urban Creaton Myth; I have to re-record the whole thing.
