Hairspray, Memoirs of a Geisha, I ♥ Huckabees

First, some blogely news. I added the button for version 3.0 on the link me bar to the right:

There is now a button for every blog layout since its creation. Now, on to the movies…

Jayne recommended this to me. She said I muuuust see it. So, I watched it (first movie on the new computer) and it was pretty good. I didn’t especially care for the music, it was all too upbeat for my tastes, but the story was good and the characters were funny. Christopher Walken was hilarious as usual. Also, John Travolta as a woman was very funny:

John Travolta is on the left. The only thing that bugged me was how unrealistic the character Link was. Since when is the good looking, popular, famous guy ever the one with good values and morals?

The next movie is…

Memoirs of a Geisha. I wanted to see this one in theaters but never got the chance. This was a pretty good movie, but there was one problem. The whole script is in English, but none of the actors speak English as their native language. So, you get this pseudo-Japanese mixture… They all speak English, but with heavy accents. And, they throw in random Japanese sayings and words without subtitling them. It was kind of strange. I think it would have been better if they would have just done it entirely in Japanese or entirely in English. This didn’t really distract me from the greatness of the film, just something I think they should have done differently. It was a good movie and I recommend it.

Finally, I ♥ Huckabees.

This was strange. It was an existential comedy with a lot of odd characters. Such a bizarre movie, yet very funny… And also, very existential. I guess if you like things that are different, this is definitely your film. It’s funny and very interesting as well.

And a final note: At work I learned how to make surveys through the campus website, so I made this. Please take this so I can finish my extensive research report on the pros and cons of Popsicle consumption and enjoyment.
