Probably time for some movie reviews too. Just brief ones since I'm chilling out on a bank holiday monday, which I've decided are good things :D
It's been a busy day, I've sorted out the hot water, installed a washing machine (and now using it), sent a lot of emails, bought some stuff I needed (shirts etc.), listed LPs on ebay, tidied up lots of papers, oh i'm such a domestic goddess.
Now watching Bad Biology, with the opening line of 'i was born with seven clits'. Worth watching a bit longer for that alone.
District 9 : go see it. It's superb. An action movie which is intelligent, and lets the viewer think. Explosions, aliens, racism, apatheid. One of the years best movies.
The soloist : was on the plane on the way over. Jamie Foxx, Robert Downey jnr. So it's worth watching for Downey Jnr, Foxx is as usual horribly overrated. It's pretty generic, reporter (RD Jnr) finds ex-Juilliard musician living on the streets, makes friends, tries to save him. Yawn. Nothing stunning there. Script is a bit better than you'd expect, but over-all it doesn't transcend generic.
Time Travellers Wife: meh, interesting concept, but badly scripted and didn't really hang together. Doesn't help that I think Eric Bana is the worst choice for a leading man, he's got no screen presence - at all. Had I known he was in it, I'd have protested more. Storyline jumps too much without any real hook to hold it together, also felt the director/script writers didn't know who they wanted to focus on, Bana or the wife. Which caused the general confusion within the script. It did start off well tho'. Go see if there's nothing else.
Tokyo Gore Police : oh this was superb. Just go see it. Wonderfully wacky and violent, and funny, and awesome.
Righto, back to chilling out, might go get a beer...mmm badger :)
