I’m going to 180 from my Disney broads post, but I have to admit, personifying Disney characters is a funny post. I was the one who made the first comment on my post so I don’t think anyone took it too literally. I’m just trying to dig myself out of a hole to anyone who read that post and thinks I’m messed up in the head. Something to take out of it though is that strange shit does run through my brain and I really don’t have to many limits on what I’m willing to comment on.
Now to two movies that I watched recently, 7 pounds and funny people. I’ll start with the former as it was suggested by Evan Cohen who tends to maybe give movies a bit too much credit. I just read the Wikipedia page on this movie and it claims mostly poor reviews. However, I sat through the entire movie, giving it its chance, and I must say it was one of the most touching movies I’ve seen. I can see why people would call it terrible and boring, but I found the good nature of Will Smith’s character to be enjoyable to watch. There is really no action throughout the entire movie and I wouldn’t say it was very exciting either. At the end when Rosario Dawson and Woody Harrelson hug, knowing how fortunate they were to have Will Smith’s character in their lives, I was really moved. I sound and feel like a complete homo writing this but I don’t watch too many movies of this type and I really thought it was pretty good. I was entertained for two hours and wasn’t disappointed by the ending, which is more than I can say about this next movie.
Funny People was moderately funny and the ending was really awful. Adam Sandler played a weird role for him. He wasn’t one of his goofy characters but was actually real. His lines weren’t meant to be funny but were meant as a real person playing a real role. It was sort of bizarre actually. Seth Rogan lost some weight and they harp on it with a few jokes but he looks sort of skinny and unfunny. Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman were good for a few laughs and I thought the girl had a funny/good vibe to her character. I’m really sick of Leslie Mann. I guess guys think she’s attractive but I really don’t see it. I don’t think she’s very funny and she’s one of the main girls in all Apatow’s movies which is becoming too much. The movie is 2 and a half hours which is way too long considering nothing really ever happens. A couple funny parts, no good themes or lessons, moderately entertaining, poor ending. One star movie and a wasted 5 bucks. I like James Taylor.
Onto TV. I’m not really going to spoil either of these next two shows. Dexter is just awesome. Arthur has been really developed throughout the whole season. I like how he has a behind the scenes persona as well as the normal life. I sort of think the Rita-family life is getting stale and the LaGuerta-Angel thing bores me. Everything with Dexter and Arthur is spot on though. I can’t wait for the next episode.
The other show I watch is Californication. The upcoming episode is the season finale. I don’t really see this season coming to as big of a climax as there was in the first season. I actually am having problems remembering what finished in the 2nd season. I thought these last couple episodes have actually been dragging a bit. When he had all the girls in his apt with Rick Springfield, that was just pure genius. Runkle and Marcy in the bathroom was a quality scene but the Hank and Karen stuff is mediocre for lack of a better word. It’s ok, but wild man Hank Moody steals the show.
It’s 1:25am now and I have to get up at 6:45 to get to work. I’ve been getting up before 7, 4 out of the last 5 days and I’ve just been tired. I’ve been getting back from work and going to sleep only to wake up and not fall back asleep till now. I miss college days of staying up late and not having to get up till I wanted to. It’s so cliche but you don’t know you have it good until you don’t have it anymore. Our first basketball game is tomorrow which will be interesting. I haven’t shot a ball since the summer and many people can attest, I couldn’t shoot so well then. We’ll have to see
A final sentence. I’m the best Clue player in this house and will accept any challengers. I also think I’m the best at gin but not as strongly as I feel about Clue.
I also have to show this movie created by my roommate, Evan. He is a deranged individual. Enjoy. Fancy Pants Nance
