    A Mighty Wind - love the formula and the music is this one. Thinking back to Christopher Guest's formuliac writing for Tap and Wind, it reminds me of Michael Apted's 14, 21, 28 Up, etc. The progression of musical genre from Spinal Tap to Mighty Wind was a spoof on a spoof - David, Nigel, and Derek as the Folksmen - true genius!

    Eugene Levy was terrific and deserves his awards for his performance and can't wait for the next ensemble mocumentary.

    So I finally FINALLY FINALLY saw Memento last night and OH MY GOD..... It was very good. The type of good where your mouth falls open and you sit there aghast. I don't think that made any sense... Oh well. You need to watch the movie very closely since it is all done backwords but very well done movie.
    Also saw Sweet Home Alabama. Funny chick movie and I had no idea Reese could play such a *itch. Sweet, romantic and funny.
    Also saw Bruce Almighty and laughed my butt off. But then I pretty much am secured that effect with ALMOST any Jim Carrey movie.
    Last but not least I saw Gothika. Althought the ending was kind of a surprise, all together I was left with the thought, I can see why Tom Cruise dumped Peneolpe. Girl does not look good without makeup. And Halle you walking on thin ice... MAKE UP.. I BEG OF YOU

    I love Memento, Realitychick, that's probably one of my favorite movies.

    I just saw a really fun & funny movie called Iron Ladies, based on the true story of a Thai volleyball team made up mostly of transgendered males (drag queens, one transsexual, one straight guy) who were famous for making it to the national championship. It was interesting to see a movie about modern Thailand, and though its message is about tolerance, the tone is always light and positive. Imagine if Bend It Like Beckham starred the characters from Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, and you've got a good idea of what Iron Ladies is like.

    I loved Memento, Carrie Ann Moss was so good in that, I still use, what time is it "beer o'clock, and your buying." Iron ladies, sounds hilarious, I wonder if I can find it in my video store.

His performance was so sensitive and nuanced that the slightest twitch in his face made me want to cry.

    I thought the movie was excellent, and terribly underrated. It managed to be a thriller that was not only suspenseful to the very end, but imbued with a social consciousness. I know that sounds boring, but trust me, it's not. You see a completely different side of London, its multi-culturalism, its social struggles. I also thought the ending has a great payoff.
    I believe that movie was nominated for an Oscar for its screenplay--so I don't think it was particularly underrated. People have loved it and it got recognition.

    Consider Under the Tuscan Sun. I was skeptical; thought it was a chick flick that I'd moderately like and my husband would sigh a lot through and then fall asleep. Instead, we both really liked it. It is about a woman, and she does get divorced, but it isn't formulaic at all.
