The Others

This Film was good totally not what I expected but still entertaining. I liked it but the DVD sucked it had no deleted scenes and well just people talking lots of stuff I don’t wanna hear. The only thing interesting was the real family story with a child who is sensitive to sunlight. That’s it. Other than that eh glad I saw it at home as well.

“”The Good Girl”” Director Miguel Arteta

“”The Good Girl”” re-teams screenwriter Mike White and director Miguel Arteta, who are well known for their collaboration in the independent favorite “”Chuck and Buck””. In “”The Good Girl”” Jennifer Aniston finds her breakout role with Justine, a small-town Texas store clerk who feels imprisoned by her dead-end job and a stale marriage with her pot smoking, infertile husband Phil (John C. Reilly). Her only solace is found in an affair with Holden (Jake Gyllenhaal), a young sales clerk thought to be a kindred spirit.

Aniston shines as Justine. She’s able to flex her acting muscles and move beyond her award-winning role as Rachel on Friends. She’s teamed with an amazing ensemble cast of characters that round out this quirky film. Recently, we sat down with director Miguel Arteta to discuss “”The Good Girl””, the “”Rachel factor”” and what Brad Pitt thought of his wife’s new look in the film. This is what he had to say:Miguel Arteta:Did you have a chance to see the film?EM:Yes. And I have a friend who is dying to see it. She asked me again today about it.MA:Oh cool. A

Lord of The Rings – DVD, Michelle’s Take

Every once in a while a film comes along that has such a rabid, irrational following that any comments by a reviewer become completely meaningless. New Line Cinema’s much hyped, long awaited, and overblown three hour epic “”The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring”” is just such a film. Now that it’s on DVD, we can revisit the legend and myth of this film.

Favorite Cartoon Characters and Cartoons

What are/were your favorite cartoon characters and cartoons? Mine are

Bugs Bunny

Snoopy

Lucy (my mother is exactly like her, it’s scary)

Charlie Brown

The Flintstones

Foghorn/Leghorn (the chicken)

Augie Doggie

Speed Racer (Everyone Sing! Here he comes, here comes speed racer, he’s the demon on wheels….Go Speed Racer, Go Speed Racer, go….)

G-Force

Gatchaman

Star Blazers (Everyone Sing!!!! We’re off in outer space, protect the human race….dum, dum, dum, duuummmmm….Star, Star Blazers! Traveling to distance stars, not knowing what the dangers are, star, star blazers!!!!)

Marine Boy

The Simpsons (the longer the Simpsons stay on the air the less and less I like it. It jumped the shark the minute they started having celebrity voices on the show.)

Johnny Socco

Ultraman

Superfriends

GI-Joe (Yo Joe!!!! Anyone remember the really dark and deeply disturbing GI-Joe movie? If you read any of the current Jedi Knight books, the main villians are a blatent rip off of the villians from this film.)

He-Man (this has a special place for me, because I got hooked on it while I was in the hospital for 4 months after I graduated High School, this and Thundercats were the only thing on TV. And I kinda dug the H-Man movie, and watch it every time it’s on TV)

Thundercats (they spend 20 minutes getting their asses kicked and two minutes kicking ass.)

MIghty Mouse

The X-Men

Batman Beyond

Batman/Superman Hour

And one of the common factors on all of these shows, is most of them have really kick ass theme songs. I didn’t watch that many cartoons.

Full Frontal

I caught this a few weeks ago, and it’s total self involved crap. This is the first film in a long time that I can say I really hated. It was forced, badly directed, badly filmed, and just a pompous “experimental” student film that never would have been made or released if Soderbergh wasn’t behind it. Would give it an F

More Dirty Dancing, The Reunion Chapter 12 -15

Chapter 12
Diary, June 28, 4:00 am

I am back in Baby’s room now. Funny, she was only awake for that minute.

The reason I am with her now is that one of the nurses said that she asked for me. They told everyone else to go home, the doctor asked me to stay just in case she wakes up again.

I have been asleep on and off, talking to Baby and writing down my thoughts in this diary.

She asked if I was married, Frannie. I don’t know what she meant by that; I didn’t marry anyone. If she was talking about Camille Peterson, yes, we finally got rid of her. She eloped with a two-bit dancer named Johnny Manning and no one ever heard from her again. Good thing, too.

I found out later that she sent letters to every woman that I knew. It was Penny who told me. She received one of them and was sure Baby did as well. Camille had gotten Baby’s address at the dorm by stealing a piece of paper from my dressing room that I found in her possession one night. She did it on a jealous whim, as I wouldn’t accept her advances towards me.

I tried to find your mother, love, only she had left the school dorm and no one knew where she had gone. I even went up to Massachusetts to try to find her. I found absolutely nothing. Finally, I looked up Dr. Houseman’s name in the telephone book and called his office. When he got back to me, he told that Baby had gotten married and they had just gotten an apartment in King’s Point, one town over from Great Neck.

He gave me the address and the phone number, but I was so hurt and disappointed that I never called them. That was three months ago. I never expected to see your mother again.

As for the police band, I have always helped people out, especially when they needed it. Maybe it was Baby’s influence; I always think that it is. She changed me in so many ways and my life has improved because of it. I wouldn’t be where I am today had I never met your mother. She is a wonderful and wise woman and when the time is right, I will ask her to be my wife. I want to watch you grow, Frannie. I don’t want to leave the two of you behind ever again. I would never forgive myself.

Your mother is moving again. I am to call the doctor right away when she wakes up. They don’t know how to break the news to her that Paul is dead, so we will wait a couple of days until we are sure that she will be able to handle it.

We are not to mention you until your mother asks first. Then we tell her. Strict orders from the doctor.

I know she will be fine, Frannie. The doctor thinks that she might have damaged her right knee on impact, but we will have to see. He thinks that she hit the metal glove compartment on the car before she was thrown. We were more worried about your fate, my little love. I am so happy that the two of you are alive and that I found you.

Danielle’s Kite Mystery Solved!

Ok, we’ve always wondered just how Danielle got hold of Leonardo’s Kite. Well I was reading the book again this morning and I think I figured it out.

When you watch the movie, the show a shot of the Kite up in a tree, with the next scene being Danielle running in the field flying the kite. Well I for one always thought that was odd and strange, and seemed out of sequence. But if you think about it, it makes sense.

Perhaps, the kite got away from Leonardo while he was testing it out, the day she met them by the lake. The kite blew away and ended up in the tree. Danielle sees the kite stuck in a tree and decides to climb the tree to retreive it. She knows how to work it, because she saw Leonardo with it the previous day.

Hence, mystery solved… 😉 :pint:
