Since it's Friday, and my thoughts have already turned into flights of fancy [I really need to get focused at some point], let's talk about movies (upcoming and present) that you want to see. Here are mine:
RENT - I've seen this on stage twice and I love love LOVE it. I read somewhere that some members of the original Broadway cast will be in this movie. Can't wait for it to come out. Can. Not. Wait. I was invited to a special screening to benefit Project Open Hand, but tickets were like, $100 a piece. Exqueeze me?
Memoirs of a Geisha - Loved the book, and I mean no offense when I say this, but why is 50% of the cast Chinese? I mean, Director Rob Marshall got some great actors for this movie, but man, we don't ALL look alike.
And then there's:
- "Walk the Line," the Johnny Cash movie
- "Jarhead," the Jake Gyllenhall drool-fest
- "Good Night and Good Luck," George Clooney's movie about the McCarthy era
- "Capote" (Have I ever mentioned my undying love for Philip Seymour Hoffman? Seriously. I think he gets my other ovary.)
Hell, I still haven't seen "The Constant Gardener" yet. I'm so behind.
*** The absence of the new Harry Potter movie is no coincidence.
