I don't think I'm the only one who sat up and took notice of how sexy this guy is during the Oscars. Also, he brought his mom as date, aww!

I just caught this news on IMDB. Nothing against portrayal of lesbian sex on film, and nothing against two of the hottest working actresses going at it. But wow, to be recruited by an old mysoginistic perv, just so you can act out his wet dream fantasy? Something about this doesn't sit right with me.

Okay, are you watching this show yet?? I caught the second episode on Monday, and it just continues to be a riveting hour of television.
This is not the kind of movie I would go see on my own. In general I have a hard time sitting myself down to documentaries or even fictional films with a strong documentary element. My friend Judy described this one as "the Romanian abortion movie" which didn't make it sound any more enticing.

My TiVo recorded an hour of music videos from some lame channel called Fuse. I figured I would check out what kind of music the kids are hip to these days, and ended up fastforwarding through most of it. Man, music videos are boring!

There are many things to love about a P.T. Anderson film. He has created so many thrilling moments that are absolutely saturated with volatility and kinetic energy. He draws out incredibly visceral & animalistic performances from his actors. Despite all this, I have been disappointed by most of his films.

Okay kids, it's time for me to get serious, as I review a very serious movie. So, I've read the book at my mom's recommendation and enjoyed its beautiful prose style, and its use of melodramatic love in a war time story to support its overarching theme about writers & their relationship to the universes/characters they create. I wasn't especially eager to go see the movie- I felt that there were aspects of the book that would just not translate well to film. But my parents wanted to go see it, my mom because she read the book, and my dad because he heard that the war scenes were really cool.
