    Movies you thought you would LOVE but hated..

    Ever been DYING to see a movie, then when you see it, you can't believe you wanted to see it?
    Mine:
    -Pearl Harbor
    -Bruce Almighty
    -Chicago (I didn't really hate it, I just didn't get what all the fuss was about..)

    (For some reason, it seems like a LOT of the Summer Movies are like that..for me anyway..)

    Anger Managment--not that I expect much from an Adam Sandler movie, but when my husband pressured me into seeing it with him, I expected a few laughs for my trouble.

    That reminds me how much I hated the movie version of "Circle of "Friends." They just ripped the spine out of one of my favorites.

    I also didn't like:
    Supernova
    Signs
    Daddy Daycare

    Eh... What can you do? They were either completely boring at parts or too stupid to be real. Signs was so fake near the end. Supernova had too much nudity and absolutely no plot. Daddy Daycare just didn't hold my interest at all (I almost fell asleep in the theater ).

    I thought I would love "Smilla's Sense of Snow," the movie adaptation of the book by Peter Hoeg.

    Yes, it is easy to get disappointed when seeing a movie version of a favorite novel.

    But this situation is a bit different. All I wanted to see was one scene, just one scene. I wanted to see the scene played out. It is one of my favorite scenes from a book ever.

    In it Smilla carefully articulates her love of math with a man who, the meantime, cooks her an elaborate lobster dinner.

    Math and food--it is a delicious (and incredibly sexy) passage. Yet, they left it out of the movie adaptation. The adaptation was bad for other reasons, too (incomplete portrayal of the protagonist, for one). However, leaving out this scene was neglectful.

    Shayla... I haven't read this book, but you make me want to. The "math" thing reminds me of a book by Aimee Bender called Invisible Sign of My Own - one of those flawed characters who does everything in relation to a number. I know you have a "list" - but throw this on there somewhere, you'd like it.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?
