I think this might be all that we do anymore. I mean, besides eat. Ah well, here they are (out of order):
1). Manchurian Candidate. Yeah, I don’t know. It was only o.k. (Sorry, movie critics everywhere, but I did actually exhale during the last 30 minutes of the movie).
2). Dirty Pretty Things Pretty creepy and disturbing but good. Through kidney removals and the flushing of a human heart, somehow you still just want to hug the hell out of Audrey Tautou for being so unbelievably cute.
3). Gothika I can’t believe that this did not suck. I may have even enjoyed it a little bit.
4). The Dreamers Now this movie? It was just bad. I don’t care if your actors are french AND hot, that doesn’t give you the license for creating pretentious crap. Outside of a few “Did he actually fuck her” sex scenes, this movie just ain’t worth it.
5). Holes This one we watched in order to justify our paying 125.00 a month for cable. I spent most of the time trying to figure out which weird state it was filmed in. My guess is either Nevada or Utah.
6). Deadline The documentary I mentioned on Friday. Held a crazy number of scary statistics. Entirely disturbing. If you’re on the fence about the death penalty and you happen to actually watch this and you’re still not convinced our system if failed, we’re all worse off than I have imagined. I really enjoyed this documentary. Canceling a happy hour to watch it was not regretted.
7). Truly Madly Deeply I saw this one many years ago while working at the video store while I was in college (I watched everything back then). And you know what? This movie never gets any happier. But somehow it always sucks me in. (Another movie we watched helping to justify our cable bill).
And then there was T.V.
1). Dead Like Me: I think this might be my new favorite show. I absolutely adore it. Really.
2). Six Feet Under: I love this show. Best quote of the night:
Having to admit fucked up shit about yourself fucking sucks.
You might say this weekend’s line-up had a theme I hadn’t realized up until now. How weird.
