Movies and Shows.

1). Exorcist: The Beginning: We saw this on Saturday. It was a lot like the first one only not at all like the first one. Plus, this one had a monkey and was set in Africa. I held my right ear through most of it because it was really very loud.

I was scared during parts of it. I may have jumped a few times. The Devil has a potty mouth, too. There was even talk about anal sex.

2). Rabbit Proof Fence:. What’s the recent fascination with stranded pairs? If you haven’t already figured it out, don’t go for a stroll in the desert, avoid deep sea diving as well. And for the love of god, if you do go hiking in the ocean or deep desert diving, don’t Gerry the rendezvous. This movie was quite sad and wonderful, honestly. I may have teared up a bit, but not as much as I would have if the ending had been in English. As it stood, since I couldn’t see the bottom of our TV set, Toby read the subtitles to me. So it wasn’t as sad. Great film, however. Beautiful and heartbreaking.

3). Pay it Forward: Somehow the dead caught me watching this. Or I was caught undead watching this. Either way, that boy would know. This movie, I tell ya. What asshat decided to end that movie like that? I mean, come on. Necessary? I don’t think so. I get “it” and everything, full cycle, things are good, things are bad, people live, people die. I righta cycle. I lefta cycle. But my word, Hollywood, back the heck up already. I think the director has stock in Kleenex.

4). Dead Like Me: I still LOVE, ADORE, CHERISH this show. Love it. Gets better every week.

5). Six Feet Under: I am going to wait one more week before writing about Six Feet Under.

6). Nip/Tuck: And if any unfortunate person still watches Nip/Tuck, you have my deepest, most sincere apologies.

  1. Dude, we watched rabbit proof fence on the bus through central australia and we drove by one of the fences. How completely insane to see that landscape on screen and out the window on the same time.

    I just saw Garden State this afternoon. Ho.lee.

  2. I have heard nothing but wonderful things. Even the things I haven’t heard yet are, I’m assuming, wonderful. For example, we were leaving our movie on Saturday and I checked my cell phone messages. There was one. It went like this: “Michele, this is Anna. Of Gerry and Anna. We just saw a movie, perhaps you’ve heard of it. It’s called Garden State. We wondered if you’ve seen this movie yet. WE would like you to call us back in order to discuss.”
    I know Anna and Gerry. And judging by that message, they both loved it. I. Can’t. Wait.
