You Mus' Respec' Mah Buthdah!

Was up late last night (ooh, what a surprise) watching movies ..... current movie watchage this week scored below:

The Life of David Gale ... Was recommended on futb by Granulated, but turned out to be a shoddy copy of Se7en, mistitled. (bloody Kazaa nobs!) Scariest thing, I recognised the movie purely from the opening shot of Morgan Freeman folding a jacket on a bed. Oo-er, too many viewings for mental health, methinks.
Rabbit-Proof Fence ... Very worthy aboriginal drama, but a touch too BBC2 for moi. The normally appalling Branagh was effective in it, however. (Unusual to see some real acting in a movie these days. I watched ten minutes of Eastenders yesterday, and some bit part actor was gobsmacking his fellow cast members by actually appearing to act.)
Firefly ... okay, it's a series, but I finally watched a dodgy downloaded copy of 'Trash', one of the episodes unaired in the US showing, scrapped when the series was canned. The picture quality was so skanky that I had to watch it at half the screen size, but it was a great episode, featuring the previous 'Our Mrs Reynolds' villainness (Saffron; not a patch on Servilan, but improving).
Only marginally spoiled by Sid later pointing out it had been aired on the UK Sci-Fi channel earlier that evening. Gah! No 'special' points for me, then.

Currently downloading: Solaris (because Mr Clooney is my hero), The Sum of All Fears (in mentallist apology to Mr Freeman), Sweet Home alabama (christ knows why, I hate that woman.)

It's my birthday! More on this later....

ikwym about actors really acting. I sa Jennifer Aniston the other day in Bruce Almighty and you know...she can act! She was a good understated foil to Jim Carrey's shouting and leaping around.

Thanks, sweetie. You're a total minx for spreading it about, though!
Hope you and Chris are still visiting in a fortnight's time. Has anyone spoken to Jo?

That film was a-a-a-a-wful, just awful. I downloaded it, and got bored two thirds of the way in, and took a month before I watched the rest, which probably spoiled the pacing a little.

Did you ever watch 'Man in the Moon' starring him? Very different.

I think Carrey's joined the ranks of over-the-hill Hollywood stars, now - less to do with age, more to do with either a certain immobility of the face, or of the bank balance, inducing laziness.

It's very strange to see stars you grew up thinking of as the young turks get past it, isn't it?

PS. The continuing saga of comments boxes on loobynet continues ina continuable fashion - they've all disappeared entirely!
