We rented Waiting last night. It was pretty good- not hilarious though. As a former long time waitperson, a lot of it was totally right on about the restaraunt staff and the customers. A few things were over the top,(like the *messing with the food* bit. I've never worked in a place that did anything to the food, nor would I, but it's quite a scary thought it could happen) but it brought back many, many memories. Not a run out and rent it rental, but a good one if you just want to veg out without thinking too much about it.
[QUOTE=SnowflakeGirl;1847443]Oh, we LOVE Father Ted here. My favorite is the young, daft priest, Father Dougal is it?
Yes, young Dougal. The housekeeper is great too!
We just rented The Aristocrats. I had heard that it was funny but no one told me how gross and explicit the comediennes get! Even if you don't think lude humor fazes you, this might. But I liked the premise of this film, following the joke across generations and around the world, and getting an inside look at the comedy industry. Seeing Bob Saget depart from his family-friendly TV image was hilarious.
Just don't watch it with anyone who's squeamish.
Saw the King Kong remake this weekend. I thought it was about one hour too long. The perils of the island went on and on and on...I get it, the island is dangerous! I'll spoiler quote this in case anyone would consider this a plot give-away:mmmClick to see Spoiler:Also, I didn't feel the Naomi Watts character was as concerned for Kong in the end the way Jessica Lange was (sorry I don't remember the original with Faye Wray). I remember Jessica pleading with Kong not to put her down so that he wouldn't get shot but Naomi never did that, she just stands around looking fearful but not screaming or crying or anything (I'm talking about at the very end). Not that I expected the movie to be exact because I know Peter Jackson put his own mark on it but I still expected Naomi to try a little harder to keep Kong safe
Can't wait for Tues. so I can buy my copy of the Chronicles of Narnia!
I watched Memoirs of a Geisha this weekend and....well, I though it was GREAT!!:yay I loved it. I wasn't sure after crouching Tiger but I took a chance (my movie store has a great lame movie return policy) and I am SO glad I did! NOTE: It is most definatley a chick-flick.:crying Jafo tried to watch it. But he wussed out and went outside to scratch his butt and do "man stuff".:ohno
I watched The History of Violence yesterday because of SnowGirl and Geek's posts. I was not disappointed. Good movie. The shots are great. Thanks SnowGirl and Geek!
STAY: saw this Saturday. Stars :lovestruc Ryan Gosling:lovestruc and Ewan McGregor. This movie was very weird and intense. I knew it had to have a twist ending, but I am so glad I didn't figure it out! If you like to be confused and entertained at the same time, this is the movie for you.
I recently rented "Cry Wolf" and "Rent" Let me give you my opinions.
Cry Wolf This was pretty cool. Great twists and it was soooo weird to see John Bon Jovi playing a teacher. He looked so cute in his suit and vest. The last 5 minutes of the movie had me floored when, just when you think everything has finally been solved, they throw in one final twist. Something tells me there may be a sequel just like the Urban Legend movies. All in all, very good. 4.5 stars out of 5 (my only problem was that parts of it were a little slow)
Rent Eh. It was okay. While I love musicals, I think there was just a tad bit too much music in this. It's like they turned every other conversation into a song. A bit ridiculous. As far as Mark goes, I'm trying to remember the Daryll character in Adventures in Babysitting. I really did like Rosario Dawson. Stupidest song for me was that ridiculous number that Maureen sang at her performance right before the riot (Over the Moon). It was like she got her hands on a bad batch of acid or something. All in all, the acting was pretty good and the story was okay.
3.5 stars out of 5
