What movies did you see today?

Checked out Just Friends on HBO...

Just Friends-8/10 completely surprised me. I hardly had any expectations but it was way funnier than I thought it would be. Lots of crazy characters and situations. Speaking of crazy- Anna Faris(chick from Scary Movie) trips me out. She can play a dumb blonde to a TEE ;-) . She's done it in several movies already and I can easily see her acting that way in real life. The end credits are sweet too.... Ryan Reynolds(in a fat suit mind you) lipsings to "I Swear" by All4One---->pretty funny

Read the book too if you can...I'm sure Clint captures it well in the movie, but I thought the book was incredible!


For sure. I'm definitely looking forward to the movie after reading the book as well. I heard they did a Japanese point of view of the movie as well.

My wife and I LOVE Just Friends. We've seen it 4 times. I think it's hilarious.

Japanese point of view...interesting. That would make sense...it would be nice to see exactly what their mentality was. They touched on it slightly in the book and I'd definitely like to see more perspective from the other side. Those Japanese Generals were insane!

I purchased American Psycho: Killer Collector's edition on a whim, and I'm glad I did.

American Psycho-8.5/10 Bale gives an amazing performance as the wall street yuppie/inner pyschopath. The movie is hard to catergorize- it's almost a satirical "morbid" comedy with some extreme violence/sex thrown in for good measure. It could very easily be seen as a character study kinda movie. The ending was confusing(at least to me) and certainly surprised me; still debating whether or not it could have been done better. Either way, good movie. I'm glad I purchased it.... and the case is cool ;-D


if you liked it, then go read the book by Bret Easton Ellis, way better then the movie, and it'll help explain a lot - the only book i've ever read where i've actually GAGGED reading it - one of the most disturbing books ever, imo - partly because of how they juxtapose the violence with his random thoughts on fashion, food, women - that is so chilling, his blasé attitude

peace,

Yeah, you're going to die, that's a given, but forget that, just make sure you get your 10 kills. Then you can call it a day. :-°

for all the AP fans if you want to see what ,imo, is an even more messed up movie see Rules of Attraction. james van der beek plays patrick bateman's brother sean and it's written by the same guy that wrote AP.it is seriously the only movie i had to stop after about the first say 45 minutes and actually start drinking to finish.

Yeah...then if there's a chance you'll get captured by Americans, just skewer yourself with a sword! I thought it was interesting how in the book they describe how the Japanese military officials distorted the Samurai teachings to motivate the soldiers; in reality, the govt looked at them as being worth about a penny.
