This movie was great, probably the best movie I have seen in a while. While I didn't find the jokes and pranks that funny, I loved that they felt so natural. It was something that I would expect kids their age and in their scenario to say and do. Definitely recommend it to anyone who has not seen it yet.
The movie really tripped me out, it really went routes I didn't expect at ALL (I went in blind).
I hate the whole documentary thing, and the fact they record the "whole ordeal" was sometimes contrived... but shit, some parts were just so damn brutal.Bed of Roses
Okay...hokey and horrible name aside, I thought there was a pretty poignant film. I got sick how so many romantic comedies were about a "misunderstanding" as the crux of the problem. In Bed of Roses, the main girl and guy are a couple who just have baggage that prevents them from being open with each other and able to completely give themselves to one another. The main girl especially has way too much to deal with emotionally and her composure is only through keeping relations at bay only to really want to make something with the guy she's with. I like that the film concludes through a consoling 'hug' and not
a big wedding ring and a trip to Florence.
It makes a few questionable decisions, and the resolution might seem a bit soft; but I do admire how the main girl packs a taser gun in case her secret admirer is more of the "stalker" varietal.
The fella in the film is Christian Slater. I usually love the hell out of that thick and straight Asian hair; but I gotta say, this man has always had an awesome head of hair.Fearless
I didn't expect this film at all. The performances were excellent and I liked how the theme or sorrow and loss is examined through a man who lost all of his life's fear after a near-death experience (daresay, it makes me feel the same when you see his blasé attitude play out; I also feel relaxed watching Office Space for the hypnotherapy magic that worked on Peter).
Anyways, it's pretty damn well done and quite a moving film as well. I do gotta take points off for Jeff Bridges (despite my pure love for him) pulling this weird "touched by an angel" face a few times:
Anyways, the scene of the actual crash (both of them) was amazingly well done. THUMBS UP
I also watched a bunch of Meg Ryan chick flix. ...that broad doesn't deserve the love in like half of these films.
