A few people snapped photos of him. I said, “You must hate the fact that cell phones have cameras.” He said, “Why would I?”
“Because now everyone has a camera with them, and you have to constantly stop for pictures.” He smiled and said, “Yeah, that’s true.”
I went over to a table that had shade. I got into a conversation with some filmmakers about the scariest villain in movies. I told them Siskel & Ebert debated whether Hal in 2001 could be considered a villain. As we all weighed in on that, one guy said, “Do you realize we sound like complete geeks?” I said, “No, not really. Unless we’re talking about episode three of the first season of Star Trek.”
He replied, “Maybe more so if we were talking about Star Trek. But we still sound like those geeks that debate these things online. Here we are at this great party and we’re talking about movie villains.”
Maybe he was right.
