Movie Miscellany

- I saw The Da Vinci Code with Roger today since our husbands had to work. I haven't read the book so I went in with no expectations. I wanted to see it because I like Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou and Ian McKellen. I enjoyed it even though I did figure out the big secret pretty early on. But it wasn't the best movie I saw all weekend. Kung Fu Hustle comes in first.

- I was disturbed that a young couple brought in two small children, somewhere between 4-6 years, into the movie with them. The family sat right in front of us. I wanted to jump into their row and cover the kids' eyes during the scenes featuring Paul Bettany's scary white assedness, self-flagellation and the spikey thigh carver with the kicky belt-tightening capabilities as well as during the extended shots of the dead guy with the pentagram deeply carved into his chest. I'm forty and all of that freaked me out.

- I think the new James Bond is a slice of fried gold after seeing him light up the screen in the preview for Casino Royale.

- After almost five years, I am still not ready to watch fictionalized accounts of the events on 09/11 so I certainly don't want to see trailers for them. The lady sitting a few seats down from me had to get a tissue out of her purse during the preview of World Trade Center. I almost needed one for myself.

- I watched Out of Sight with George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez again tonight. I'd get into a car trunk with George anytime. He is unbelievably sexy in that movie. I am getting overheated just thinking about him.

I was leery until I saw the trailer. Now I believe.

omg, I went to see The Passion of the Christ with a few friends of mine, and there were SO MANY little kids in the theater, it was nuts. When a piece of his back flew off into the camera, the little girl behind me started crying. Stupid parents. Ugh.

No The Passion of the Christ for me! I knew it would be too gruesome.

so glad (and so not surprised) you liked Kung Fu Hustle! we watched it a few weeks ago and our jaws dropped right at the beginning and stayed that way the whole way through and then I went and made this icon.

It was indescribably great. I've wanted to see it for a while and finally caught it on Starz. And I love that icon.
