Back again. Below, you’ll find Borat, my connection with an actress, basic grammar tips, geek humor, naked women, minor politics, assless chaps and happy endings for women (and more!).
Over the past month or so, Iâ€™ve watched several movies that I wanted to review, but they didnâ€™t really warrant an entire blog post. Most of these movies were let downs; overrated. I do have some positive remarks, though.
My thoughts on:
Lucky Number Slevin
Thank You for Smoking
Christian Bale is a ridiculously talented, under-rated actor. This is the guy who was able to bring Batman to life and make a serial-killer compelling and pitiable. Iâ€™ve enjoyed his movies since I first saw his haunting performance in Empire of the Sun back in junior high.
I finally sat down and watched The Machinist (El Maqinesta in Spain, where the film was made). Everyone has heard about his concentration-camp weight-loss. The real question is: why? I had put off watching the movie because I thought it would be dark, depressing and ultimately leave me with nothing. I shouldâ€™ve trusted the abilities of Christian.
Yes, these two movies are indeed exposing the deep, dark underbelly of racism in this country. (Never mind that Charlie was actually written by an Englishman.)
