Nothing for today. I worked early this morning and then Lee, Steve and I managed to turn the simple task of picking up a TV and entertainment center into a 5 hour adventure. Aftewards I went to Steve and Donna's for hamburgers and hung out for awhile. So now I'm more behind, but I don't care. This has been one of the funnest Saturdays I've had in awhile.


420) The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. In my defense, Charity wanted to see it and Kicking and Screaming wasn't starting for another two hours. That being said, DUDE, WHAT A SAD MOVIE! Yeah, touching blah blah coming of age blah blah uplifting blah blah strength from within blah blah, but the downers were rough. If I were a girl I would have cried.

420 down, 580 to go.

419) Sweet Home Alabama. I hope Patrick Dempsey will remember, a southern man don't need him around, anyhow.

419 down, 581 to go.

Worked late. Helped Lee. Found sunglasses. Look like Bocephus. Tired.

418) Species. Ben Kingsley seemed so out of place. Otherwise, okay for a sci-fi/horror picture.

418 down, 582 to go.

Worked late and helped Lee move some stuff, so only one tonight. Tired.

...wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face...

Seriously, this weather is doing NOTHING for my hair. Stupid rain.

416) Nurse Betty. Not really sure what to think here. It was an interesting idea, and well executed, but I found it hard to believe that Betty coasted through Hollywood all Chauncy Gardner for so long before anyone caught on. Benign whatever.

417) Turbulence. Crap dude, talk about SUCK. Nobody freaks out like Ray Liotta, but when even a full blown Liotta freak out can't save your movie something is seriously wrong.

417 down, 583 to go.

411) Psycho. I don't really get the point. Unless this is pure conceit on the part of Van Sant, then why go to all the trouble to make an almost exact copy of a movie? On the one hand I can appreciate Van Sant's acknowledgment that there isn't really anything to improve on, but so then why make it at all? Unless he thought colorizing it added something. I don't know, I'm totally baffled.

412) Prey for Rock and Roll. Even with the whole attempt at an uplifting ending, this was just too damn depressing.

413) I Spy. Dude, Famke Janssen is SO hot.

414) Red Dragon. I kind of forgot this even existed until I happened upon it during my second trip to Blockbuster. I guess it was okay, I just wasn't really in the mood for this kind of picture. Bad timing on my part I guess.

415) Garfield. The things I'll do for Bill Murray. I picked this up on my THIRD trip to Blockbuster today. They totally know me now. The chick that I got the movie pass from was working tonight and she was outside when I got in line but she came back in when it was my turn and was all "you were waiting for me to check out, weren't you?" She so wants me.

415 down, 585 to go.

404) Mystery, Alaska. Another one that I heard was good but that no one ever saw. Standard feel good underdog sports story, including the slow clap at the end. Okay.

405) Kingdom of Heaven. My knowledge of the Crusades is limited to what classes I didn't skip in my Western History survey classes (hint: not a whole hell of a lot), so I have no clue about historical accuracy. But as far as historical drama go, this was a good one.

406) Madagascar. Note to self: Sunday afternoon is THE WORST POSSIBLE TIME to go see a kid's movie.

407) The Longest Yard. I've unwittingly seen two movies with Chris Rock and Burt Reynolds today. Weird. Not as funny as the earlier Sandlers, but it was funny enough so I'm okay with it.

408) Who is Cletis Tout?. Like a very poor comic adaptation of The Usual Suspects, but it was decent enough.

409) Overboard. I bought this for my sister a few years ago for her birthday because she always talks about it and ever since then she has sworn she would let me borrow because it's SOOOO funny and I'll just love it and she finally did yesterday. It's also one of Jolley's favorite so we watched it tonight and it was, in fact, pretty darn funny.

410) Wicker Park. On the one hand I kind of enjoyed it, but on the other I was sorely dissapointed. The trailers all made it out to be a Vertigo like story of obsession and mistaken identity, and it played that way for the first half hour, but then it turned into a less psycho Single White Female and didn't really follow through on the initial tension. So whatever.

410 down, 590 to go.
