Movie Madness

I haven't had much on my mind lately. I meant to post about a couple movies I saw over the weekend though. Both were pretty good, but still gave me a bad taste in my mouth at times.

We rented The Prestige and we were VERY impressed with how well written it was. I mean, this movie has twists and turns over and over! It was towards the ending that I kind of got that ill feeling because there were some unethical themes being revealed. All the magic tricks explained you know... I don't want to give anything away, but if you've seen this movie, you'll understand. Wowee, excellent and creative, but somewhat morbid and sad. Highly recommended.

On Saturday night I went alone to a late showing of Because I Said So. I had been wanting to see this one since before it came out in the theaters. It just looked like one of those hearty chick flicks that would play with every emotion. It didn't disappoint. I was worn out from watching it. I was laughing, crying, etc.

I have to report that if you haven't yet seen this movie, you'll be melting in your seat when Gabriel Macht enters onto the scene. I officially have a new crush -- in a close second with my first celebrity crush, Mike Rowe. Put either one of them in nothing but gauzy linen pants and that would be my delicious fantasy dish! (Yes, Ian knows all about this. I swoon each time we watch Ocean's 12 and that Italian guy does his avoid-the-laser routine.)

Anyway, back to the movie. Miss Mandy Moore plays a cute girl, but how she handles two relationships really bugs. Duh... pick Gabriel!!!!

Okay, that's all I got. Have a great day!

I love movies and don't get to see them nearly enough! The Prestige was one of the few we saw in the theatre and I loved it! But I think Christian Bale is who *I* swoon over... *sigh*

We just saw the Prestige this weekend too. I LOVED it. I watched it twice because it is one of those movies that you can watch over and over and still miss stuff. We both LOVED it too. Don't waste you time on Babel though. One of THE worst movies EVER!!

I'm so glad to read your movie reviews! I LOVE hearing whether REAL people like movies or not....I never trust the "reviews" you read about. They are rarely right. I have been wanting to see The Prestige...so I will definately rent it now!

Sei has seen The Prestige and told me that I would like it, but it would piss me off... Hmmm... We're renting it this week.
I saw The Illusionist and LOVED it. Great movie.

Next Saturday late night movie- call me please- no reason a girlfriend should have to go out alone ;-). I would have loved to see Because I Said So. I have heard it is absolutely hilarious.

Mike and I watched Belles on Toes... a 50's movie.. that is actually a sequel to
the 50's version to Cheaper by the Dozen...

We loved both of those movies...

Ok, I saw The Prestige last nite. I am officially warped. Am I a wimp? I was just really upset by how obsessed these men were and by how many lives they ruined. :( I'm still realizing things and figuring things out. I'm a dork. Sorry.
