Recently viewed movies:

Netflix is keen.

Here's a list of the movies we've watched in the past week or so.

The School of Rock - Decent enough. Jack Black isn't my favorite comedian, but I did find myself laughing several times during the film. The best moment though, was delivered by Joan Cusack.

Amélie - Mmmm...quirky French film. I can totally see why Simon says this is his favorite movie. Humor, humanity, and just a very unique way of looking at life. [up]

love actually - I didn't think I'd like this...but guess what, I did! [grin] I'm glad that I opted to watch it with Steph rather than go online. The internet is far less interesting lately than a 2 1/2 hour romantic comedy. (Take that, world wide web!)

Interesting tidbit about love actually - after it was over, we watched the deleted scenes, and there was a story about a lesbian couple. And one of them dies. In their defense, it was deleted, but still.

Lost in Translation - BORING! We've only watched an hour of this, which means there's 30 minutes remaining, but good Christ it's slow. I doubt we'll finish it.

In fact, we're always taking movie suggestions.

Not a *gasp* lesbian cliché?! The horror!

I don't know if you've seen it or even if you'd want to, but I saw Down With Love at the weekend and laughed rather a lot more than I was expecting to. Any good for yez?

See, I dug School of Rock for the tunes, as I was singing along in the theatre and greatly annoying those around me. I also dug Love, Actually, and am afraid to be put into a coma by Lost In Translation. Any film that says it's to be about the dullness and depressingness of everyday life makes me worry about the dullness and depressingness of that movie.

I liked all of those movies.

But I will watch anything.
