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!
