Movie Review

Just before leaving for NYC last week Superdad and I did something we hadn't done in eons: we rented movies. We're so behind that we didn't know where to begin, so I just ran through Hollywood Video and nabbed three that looked interesting.

So, here's what we watched:

Superdad and I both really enjoyed this movie. Eric Bana was terrific and made some slower scenes watchable. I don't have any insightful commentary, but I would recommend the movie, though make sure you watch it on a night when you're fully awake and alert.

Hil-arious. Even Superdad enjoyed it . It was a very pretty movie to watch, doesn't require much thought (OK, any) to keep up and I've heard and read it pretty accurately describes the behind-the scenes of the fashion industry.

I thought I'd read good reviews of World Trade Center. Upon proudly showing the rental to Superdad his less than enthusiastic face temporarily tamed my excitement.

"What?" I asked.

"Why'd you rent that?"

"What! It's supposed to be really good. Isn't it?"

"No, Cate, it's not."


And he was right. Pretty dull stuff.

Just saw Devil Wears Prada myself. Definitely a moral to it I thought (without giving away more.)

Adored Devil Wears Prada; as I told you, that was my LIFE for a very brief time. Didn't see WTC and don't plan to, but did see Flight 93 which was harrowing but very good. I am still trying to decide whether I really want to watch movies of the harrowing type or whether I prefer to just be entertained.

Oops I think it was United 93, not Flight 93.

As a general rule if Nicolas Cage is in a movie it is most likely not a good movie. If he wasn't a Coppala this guy would be changing the fryer grease at the local McDonalds.
