just been to see Good Night, and Good Luck

well half of it.

it was reeely (geddit) hot in the theatre and she wanted to go get a drink in the bar, so we did.

desperate to go back to see the rest so won;t review until then.

not for everybody (she didnt like it) but seems perfect fodder for people interested in politics and the media (me and me)

very relevant at the mo.

So how much money was that wasted, flH? Tsk!

I couldn't think of a movie for today, I'm doing a bit of work. However, I did dig up just a few amusing movie taglines:

Dead Men don't wear plaid:
"I'd been shot so many times you could use my shirt as a tea strainer"

Predator 2:
"He's coming to town with a few days to kill"

"Eight legs, two fangs and an attitude"

The Mummy's Shroud:
"Beware of the cloth-wrapped feet"

"Don't pronounce it, see it!"

Back to work. Goody! Beatles on the radio! la la la she says she loves you, and you know that can't be bad...

was watching the usual suspects again at the weekend, and was reminded how umuch i love the Dave Kuyon monologue to Verbal Kint in their office.

Kuyon—I want that name.
Verbal—The DA gave me immunity.
Kuyon—not from me asshole, you get no immunity from me. every man i have ever put in prison, every cop that owes me a favour, every creep and scumbag that works the streets for the living will know the name of Verbal Kint. Now you talk to me, or that so-called immunity they've seen fit to grant you, won't be worth the paper the contract put out on your life is printed on.

Shock horror! What a er- cow!
Excellent stuff, TUS!

Or this exchange:
[Keaton is introducing quiet Verbal to the other suspects in the cell]
Keaton: His name is Verbal. Verbal Kint.
McManus: Verbal?
Keaton: Yeah.
Verbal: Roger, really. People say I talk too much.
Hockney: Yeah, I was just about to tell you to shut up.

gotta go! gig with the wellesley gals!

been watching Japanese Story this morning, with Toni Collette.

I wasn't watching with Toni Collette, sadly, she was in the film.

fantastic, funny, emotionally gut-wrenching movie. I absolutely loved it but havent heard much love for it elsewhere so maybe it was just my mood but it really grabbed me.

it just takes you places you don't expect to go and also some lush scenery.

plus Toni Collette is the most agonisingly wonderful human being ever. i just want to put her in an eggcup and eat her for my tea.

I saw that last year! Totally unexpected outcome, wasn't it? Defnitely gut-wrenching.

Speaking of Japanese, I really liked the strangely weird "Battle Royal" (also known as "Batoru rowaiaru"). I heard that there was a sequel...:o

Anyway, really gotta go! Have a good one!

Triumph Thunderbird... All of 'Johnny's' crew were on British bikes... the bad guys were on Harleys

British bikes were seen as cool in 50's USA... their own bikes were seen as 2nd rate then

First time I saw the Movie (1990 Brando retrospective at MOMI)I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen...

Bought the DVD before xmas, watched it 2 weeks ago and was awstruck by the direness of the bike scene closeups... also about how flimsy the story is... it still does look cool though

One thought kept cropping up... the BBFI banned this 1953 WHY?!? It's about as rabble rousing as a 'Swing Out Sister' fan club convention
