Our daughter was born C-section.... how I hate her*.

Hopefully it need not be said that nothing could be further from the truth.

Well it wouldn't have any bearing on YOU.  Unless you have a vagina I don't know about.  In which case, let's keep it that way.

The possibility of me (or Robbie for that matter) disliking her for that reason is no less preposterous than Julie disliking her for that reason, IMHO.

All I'm getting out of this conversation is Ricki Lake nipple and Kwyjibo vagina.  Please make it go away.

In case you are wondering, her areolas are abnormally dark.

My hate for Nora has disappeared, but my hate for you is now growing.

Might we say your hate for him is engorged?

Movies seen in 2010 (new movies in bold):
1. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
2. Wall Street
3. National Treasure

4. Die Another Day
5. She's The One
6. XXX
7. The Girl Next Door
8. Fanboys
9. Garden State
10. The Book of Eli


A little on the weird side. I knew it was post-apocalypse, and knew that Denzel plays a dude who's got a book that everyone wants but he's a badass with a preachy side to him. And that Mila Kunis was in it. That was about it.

So that was all true. I guess I felt that it was a sort of middling film that really didn't have much need to be made. Denzel was pretty cool, and Gary Oldman was awesome as usual...even if the character was a bit standard. The post-apocalypse was alright - I felt there was more to be explained. More backstory, more stuff that would give details about what happened, etc. And I was a little sad to find out just what the "book" was, even if I should have known better. There was one huge 'twist' at the end that really caught me off guard and was pretty cool, but when I thought more about it, I found the twist to be sooooo waaaaay beyond the suspension of disbelief that I think it's actually lessened the film for me. And the film was a little too special-effects for me, but I did get used to it after a while to the point that it was fine. I did like the use of color - erm, lack of color. Very effective.

Of course, my biggest complaint is with Mila Kunis's character. It's not that Mila did a poor job - she was great - but rather that she shouldn't have taken the gig at all. They should have had a nobody playing that role. Maybe some fresh face right off the plane from Wisconsin or something. The role was pretty bland and kinda useless. Like, without Denzel, that character isn't as cool. They needed Denzel. Without Gary Oldman, that character is definitely less intriguing. But without Mila...that character is the exact same.

I am totally in love with Mila, and she was the main reason I went to see this, so it really pained me to believe that she wasn't even needed in the movie. She was too clean (everyone else in the film was dirty and disgusting - it was great), she was too innocent and perky (everyone else wasn't), and she was probably too old for me to believe that her mom was ... her mom, etc. I don't know. I guess that maybe Mila wanted to work with Denzel, or she needed another resume builder, or she wanted to try something outside of comedy...but I think this will be one that she looks back on with regret.

New-to-me movies are bolded.

1. Up In the Air
2. Bottle Rocket
3. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  I could have used a little bit more exposition, but visually amazing.
4. The Hangover Funny, but Bradley Cooper's character was annoying. Would have been better in the theater
5. Avatar 3-D version.  As has been stated before, so pretty
6. The House Bunny It didn't suck. And was way more conservative/traditional than I would have expected.

7. Keeping Mum Maggie Smith plays a psychopath, Rowan Atkinson plays a normal person, and Patrick Swayze plays a sleazy golf pro.
8. Tin Man Sy-fy mini series redoing "The Wizard of Oz".  Stick to the original, as Zooey D. is annoying and Alan Cumming is underused.

1. Sherlock Holmes - 5
2. Up in the Air - 9
3. Inglorious Basterds - 9

6. Julie & Julia - 7.5
7. The Informant! - 6
8. Youth in Revolt - 6.5
9. The Business of Being Born - 4

The movie Fast Food Nation should have been if they hadn't gone the stupid "fictionalized" route.  Well done without straying too hard into "shock" documentary territory.

Top-notch cinematography and killer performances from Voight and Hoffman save this from being a mere 'period' piece. Haven't watched it for maybe 20 years or more, but the squalor and loneliness it portrays still resonates. It wouldn't surprise me if some Hollywood moron eventually decides its ripe for a remake.

10. NIGHTS AT RODANTHE - 02/07/10 - DVD from library - 1 out of 5
11. THE BURNING PLAIN - 02/08/10 - DVD - 1 out of 5 - written and directed by the writer of BABEL. Recommended to me by Roger because he knew I just HAD to see the actor who plays Bucho in DESPERADO. Also stars an often nekkid Charlize Theron (one of the executive producers), John Corbett, Robin Tunney, Kim Basinger and some other folks. Lot of jumps in time to try and tell a story that was easy to figure out in about 2 minutes. Very moody. Not very effective. zzzZZZZZzzzzz. I just changed my rating from a 2 to a 1 when I realized there wasn't much of anything to like about this film aside from the introduction to Josι Marνa Yazpik. I'm going to have to seek out his other movies. In a film full of someones, he is the only one who really stood out for me.
