Yesterday, I saw the movie 'White Noise' and was rather disappointed by it. Not in the sense that I was expecting it to be good, just in the sense that it seemed to drag onwards and had no real horror to it besides the occasional generic 'pop and and startle you' type of scare.
As far as good films go, I've been watching some classic movies by Kubrick lately. Dr. Strangelove, Clockwork Orange, and such. Good stuff, I must say.
As for the aforementioned Napoleon Dynamite, everybody at my school has been talking constantly about it, almost to the point that it has become a new obsession of sorts. I haven't seen it yet, myself, and I don't know how to interpret the craze about it as there was previously a craze about the movie 'Tommy Boy', which I later found to be somewhat underwhelming and not living up to it's hype. Hopefuly, Napoleon Dynamite won't prove to be the same.
I just started on Netflix this week. i'm hooked. I just sent back Frida and Immortal Beloved. I enjoyed them both a lot. I've got One Flew over the Cukoos Nest, WIthout a Paddle, and Van Helsing coming in next.
We saw Roger Vadim's version of Dangerous Liaisions (1960). The look of the film is decidely swanky and must be an continued inspiration for Shag. The story is pretty true to the original that inspired it, with some liberties taken here and then.
We now own 4 different versions of the Dangerous Liaisons story on DVD!
Last decent movie I watched was National Treasure with Nic Cage.Don't know why but I was totally gripped from start to finish.And I can't understand why Disney released this movie in the winter as it had Summer flick writen all over it.
Tomorrow is the UK release of Walking Tall on DVD here in the UK.So Im going to puchase a copie of that and also Collteral.Tom Cruise playing the bad guy I like it.
Tonight I went to see In Good Company. For one thing... I adore Topher Grace. I love the nerdy boys. Also, Scarlett Johanssen and Dennis Quaid are as equally wonderful.
The movie was warm and touching. Nice ending, good acting... and good looking Topher...
Oh my gosh! I was wondering yesterday....I wonder if LV also has a crush on Topher? He and Zach (and Justin Theroux) are my geeky crushes. I stayed up for SNL last night to watch Topher. He's getting less geeky and more hottie in real life. Dang.
Yesterday we watched Miracle on 34th Street and The Santa Clause. :confused: Kids choice. Not ours.
Tonight if I can get out of the icy driveway, my sister and I are going to see Bad Education. I'm praying for a MAJOR thaw!
