We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to announce that
I just won a $25 Amazon Gift Certificate from Meljean Brook!!!
Excuse me I feel the need to dance.
*snoopy shuffle, snoopy shuffle, plie, plie, graceful leap *snort*, trip over the dog and bow*
Now, before I get a bunch of 'way to brag bitch' comments you still have time to enter her contest. Hie thee off to Meljean's pronto!
Dude, for real, she's paying out over there!! You can read my crappy movie sum ups later!
And now back to your regularly scheduled program.
What. The. Fuck!!!!
I want my hour and a half back.
The whole thing was a mess. If someone can tell me what Spain, the present and the space ship have to do with one another I promise not to blog for a whole day. Win, win.
Ah, just read the Amazon blurb and apparently it was booed at the Cannes Film festival. It all makes sense now.
Excellent even though I figured it out half way through. Not that I'm a genius but I had heard this movie had blown people's minds so I was looking for it. Still, it kept me thinking and wondering and even though it's really about obsession and narcissism and where it can lead, it was a good way to spend some time.
Because I Said So.
I really didn't want to rent this movie because I think the lead actress whose name is missing from my brain right now, acts the same in every movie. I think she overacts to be honest and yes, she does that in this movie. Still it was cute and not horribly obnoxious so I would say it's not a bad way to spend a few hours. Nothing earth shattering here although one spot had me tearing up.
The Painted Veil
I went into this knowing it wasn't going to be a HEA. I mean, how can it be? A man takes his wife into the middle of a cholera epidemic after discovering she is having an affair. The things they did chose to say were painful and I wished they had said what I wanted them to say while I was watching. They do this overview thing where you see them talking about the heroes work and that they are getting closer but I never hear the words. We just never hear the words. And even though I knew it wasn't going to end happily, I would have preferred a different epilogue. Should you rent it? Well, it certainly wasn't the horridness that was The Fountain and it wasn't the brilliance of The Prestige but it was beautifully shot and Naomi Watts and Edward Norton do an excellent job.
Oh. I totally went online last night and bought even more books.
I feel much better now.
I'll share when they arrive.
Hey, I have to give you a reason to keep coming back!
