    I was surprised by Pixar's "Up." I wasn't expecting to like it, even though I have been a fan of many of the studio's recent movies.

    But after "Up," I left the theater feeling really hopeful. Yeah, I'm a sentimental sap.

    The movies are terrible this summer... and I'm not sure where all directors picked up the "your movie must be over 2.5 hours long" memo - but it is tres annoying.

    - The Bi-Curious Case of Benjamin's Butthole (over 2 hours)
    - Pubic Enemies (over 2 hours... and boring)
    - Tranys 2 [supposed to be Transformers... lol] (over 2 hours)
    - Harry Hothole and the Deaf-Guy Swallows (over 2 hours)
    - etc. etc.

    Have yet to really be blown away (haha no pun intended) by anything this fall / summer. UP was good, but of course anything Pixar touches turns to GOLD... you gotta love those Canadian started and run companies icon_wink.gif


    Much Love,
    J

    Urg... I messed up my Harry Potter Flicks

    This summers is Harry Potter and Half Blood Prince.

    Harry Potter and the Deaf Guy-Swallows (The Deathly Hallows) is the 7th book and 7th and 8th movie -that's right, a 2 parter!... cash grab anyone?

    In retrospect when the 6th movie brings in $21 million on DAY ZERO midnight screening and the first 5 movies combined have brought in of $5 BILLION (yes, billion) in revenue.... I guess I would keep that franchise open as long as possible!

    Do you think that British chick JK Rowling would go for me... cause I'm willing to throw my balls in the other net (if you catch my metaphor) for a share of $5B.

    Well, maybe not! haha

    Much Love,
    J

    Ditto.

    That movie got me out of my "fuck relationships" rut I'd been in for some time.

    It's an old one...but I always go back to my DVD of Fried Green Tomatoes when I feel down and just wanna get under a blanket and escape. It always makes me hopeful...

    Towanda!

    "UP" was such a great movie, I can't wait to buy a copy (legally of course) for it's a treasure.

    Requiem for a Dream - a laugh out loud kinda movie.... jk.

    Bruno... I left appreciating that I live in a region of the USA where most people have most teeth and in which most straight people don't give a damn about who I kiss in my spare time. What is wrong with the other half of this country???

    A truly good uplifting movie though I'd have to say is Garden State with Zach Braff and Natalie Portman.

    I never saw "I ♥ Huckabees" until Blinky and I watched it back in February.. I can't believe I went so long without seeing it. It truly made me happy. icon_biggrin.gif

    I was about to say Bruno (I've haven't laugh so hard in a long time) but the Hangover was superb and had a great ending.

    I'm looking forward to the Time Traveller's Wife. I hope they don't murder the book, but just in case, make sure you read it before going along to watch the film ;)

    I thought Requiem for a Dream was a very intense disturbing movie.....hard to sit through because it was so powerful.

    But I loved it.
