I love movies!

Date Night wasn't great, but it was silly fun. I enjoy Tina Fey and Steve Carell, and Mark Wahlberg's abs, all of which were featured in abundance.

Please Give is Nicole Holofcener's latest, starring her muse, Catherine Keener, one of my faves. I thought it was really interesting. The characters are flawed, sometimes unlikeable people, but the movie was still very likeable. It raises some interesting things to ponder about guilt and family and class and what it means to be a good person.

Babies. Babies!!! Baaaaaaabiiiiiieeeeeeees!!! Man, I love babies. I love real babies! I love movies about babies! Babies!!

I enjoyed The Trotsky a lot. Very clever Canadian movie starring the adorable Jay Baruchel, about a Montreal teenager who believes himself to be the reincarnation of Leon Trotsky. Good stuff.

I liked the show a lot, and enjoyed the first movie (while realizing it was not *actually* good), but Sex and the City 2 was TERRIBLE. 3 stars for the excellently insane outfits, but -5 stars for the plot, dialogue and acting. Appalling. All of these people have talent--how did this happen? Oy vey.


DVDs:

Starting Out In The Evening is a lovely little movie about an unusual friendship between an aging novelist and a grad student writing a paper about him. Great performances from Frank Langella and Lauren Ambrose.

Hmm-along the same lines of SATC, I'll say: I liked the show a lot, and sort of enjoyed the first movie, but The X-Files: I Want To Believe was pretty bad. Sadness.

I’ll y a Longtemps Que Je T’aime (I've Loved You So Long) is a compelling and affecting French drama starring Kristin Scott Thomas, who gives an incredible performance as a woman recently released from prison who moves in with her sister.

The Big Bang Theory Season 2 was good fun. I'm liking it more and more as I watch it. The characters are getting more developed, and the whole thing is just funnier.


Live Theatre

The Long Weekend is a fun Norm Foster play that I saw done by a bunch of my friends. He's not always my thing, but I found this one quite funny, and I love having talented friends and seeing them on stage!

I got a free ticket to Rock of Ages, otherwise I probably wouldn't have gone. I'm so glad I did--it is ridiculous, loud fun! Way over-the-top craziness, awesome (did I mention loud?) singing, and servers wandering the aisles, selling drinks during the show! What could be better?
