This holiday season there are soooooo many good movies coming out. Well they look good at least.
Last night I went and saw “Rent.” I had never seen the stage show, but everyone who has loves it. My old roommate always told me if it ever came to Philly that I had to go see it with her. At the time I had no desire to see it. I didn’t really know what it was about, I just thought it was about some poor people in New York who couldn’t pay their rent. Well I went to see the movie last night after everyone told me I had to go see it. What a great movie! It was so sad, and it fuggin made me cry! If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it, but leave the kids at home. It deals with adult subject matter. I want to see it on Broadway now.
This Friday “Aeon Flux” comes out. That looks like it will either be good or a big dud. I will go see it though.
The week after “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” comes out. I just read (well listened) to the book again. It’s such a good story, so I can’t wait to see how they do it on the big screen. I have seen the BBC version done years ago, and while fun, you can tell it’s a BBC version .
Two other movies which look great are “Rumor Has It” with Jennifer Aniston, Shirley McClain and Keven Costner; as well as the movie “Memoirs of a Geisha.”
Oh and of course, if you haven’t gone to see Harry Potter, why the hell not?
