Blew thru my other 2 Netflix choices, so figured I'd share my reviews with you. Yeah, I know. Novel idea. Get over it.
I'm not gonna do all the linky-stuff for you, ok?
Alright, my first choice which I touched on the other night was:
#1- WEEN: Live at Chicago.
LOVED it. Would have loved it enough to marry it if it hadn't skipped the whole fucking time it played. Apparently a replacement is on the way. I would give the musical content 10 stars...but 5 is the highest I can go. So I'll give it a 5.
#2- Corpse Bride
I heart Tim Burton. Incredibly talented. Have seen almost all of his stuff. This was charming, funny, wise and made me tear up at the end. OK, I'm a wuss...I'll give you that. 5 star for sure.
#3- Mr. and Mrs. Smith
Snoozefest. I know Bradd Pitt and Angelina (Bee Lips) Jolie are supposed to be the hottest humans on the planet. Yeah, whatever. Most of the film was a showcase for her boobs...and lips...and the supposedly witty banter between Pitt and Jolie. Wonder if Jennifer Aniston has rented this? Ya think? 1 star is all this gets from me, and that's being kind.
Next up? By Tuesday I should have :
Jarhead. Jake Gyllenhaal and Peter Saarsgard.Yum!
Then Bad Santa. (Suggested by Scott and Tom)
Finally Ocean's 12.
It's nice to have something to look forward to.
On an un-related note, am really looking forward to JACK'S MANNQUIN at the Ogden this Weds.
Got to thinking what everyone's Top 10 Favorite movie choices would be.
So I'm tagging Little, Jillian, HDW, Repetitive Motion Injury, Bite Me and I Am Not A Monkey.
Then they can tag someone else and so on and so on and so on....
#1- Local Hero (all time favorite, have seen it 30x at least) #2- To Live and Die in L.A. #3- Monty Python's Holy Grail #4- Sound of Music (one day I WILL go to Austria) #5- Scrooged ( LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!) #6- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind #7- Garden State #8- Amazing Grace and Chuck #9- Star Wars #1 #10- Schindler's List
Some background on my choices. I was a Communications Major in college, with a Film and Broadcast Emphasis. Interned at NBC Burbank aka Peacock Central. Have seen more 'behind the scenes' stuff than your average moviegoer. Also did remote production for my college as well as my own productions for my major.
Why do I mention this? Cause it's rare for me to watch a movie and get swept away by the movie. For me to watch and forget that it's really just actors being watched by grips, caterers, go-fers, etc...that, to me, is the sign of a great movie.
