Movie Marathon (I'm Very Cool)
I've been watching soooo much TV (nothing new, right) lately. But, there is a difference. I have been watching Entourage on DVD from Netflix (if you want to discuss-PLEASE-go to the other blog)(don't spoil anything for me, though!). I've also been watching on my laptop because we only have one DVD player, it's in the living room and Luke's been watching football. I got a bunch of DVDs when I joined some kinda club or something... before Kelli helped me see the light with Netflix, so I'm gonna be watching those too. I watched one that I had high hopes for the other night and *le sigh*, 'eh. It was this one:"Friends With Money" is about three rich couples and their lone single, poor friend played by Jennifer Aniston. It was not unwatchable or anything, although I do have some big gripes. Dying to know if any of you have seen it and agree with what I have to say. What do I have to say? Well, Jennifer Aniston's character, Olivia, is never really explained adequately. Meaning, how did she become friends with this group of people? It seems that she was friends with Franny (played by a horrible looking Joan Cusack who I usually love) first and then introduced to Jane (Frances McDormand- great in her role) and Christine (Catherine Keener- pretty good). Plus, Jennifer Aniston plays Olivia so similar to the way she portrays Justine in "The Good Girl". I really liked that movie and I liked Aniston in it. I don't know, I just thought this movie could've been better. I'll be watching "Hairspray" today. The original John Waters one with Ricki Lake was a favorite of mine when I was younger. I have seen it LOTS of times. I'm very anxious to see what is different about this one. This movie was recommended to me by my dear friend, Naomi. She said she thinks I'll love it because of the costumes, makeup, etc. I'm looking forward to it. This movie is about the life and death of George Reeves, TV's superman (Ben Affleck). It was nominated for awards and stuff. I'll let you know how I like these.
