While I can't yet vouch for whether wine film Bottle Shock is any good, I can say this with great certainty: The Dark Knight
is fabulous. Heath Ledger
and Christian Bale
make Jack Nicholson
and Michael Keaton
(from the first installment of the Batman films) look like parodies of the super hero genre. And don't even get me started on the dreadful Kim Basinger
...Oh yeah, right, this is a wine blog... well, I do plan on catching Bottle Shock
before it's gone from the one theatre in which it is being shown. We'll see when I can actually fit that in - my bachelorhood comes to an end today, as my wife and daughter return from PEI after a two-week absence. While they've been gone, I've been rewatching the final season of The Sopranos
- probably my favourite TV series of all time.In a recent episode I watched, Christopher Moltisanti
and Tony Soprano
steal a whole bunch of wine from some bikers (who were in the process of lifting the stuff themselves). Their haul? Cases of 1986 Chateau Pichon-Longueville. According to reviews
, it's good stuff. Christopher, a recovering alcoholic, then goes on a bit of a bender.Product placement is rampant in The Sopranos, and I've noticed that the Sopranos tend to enjoy the tan-labelled Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale
on a regular basis; it's a widely available Italian red (it sells in Manitoba for $29.05).
