The Break-up … watching is hard to do

Alrighty, it was a waste of celluloid effort.  And this coming from a big Vince Vaugh fan … yes, I like the big guy and he was flawless in Swingers but here it was just painful.  I was just grateful I was on a plane and could fall asleep when I needed to.

A lot of us have been through break-ups and don't need to pay to go through it all over again and with a script that would have better suited Lindsay Lohan and some teen dude.  Everything that was funny in the film, I saw in the trailer months ago.  There was nothing left.

Ok ok, it would be good for those with some romantic notion about their own break-ups and relate to the games played in the movie.  Different strokes for different folks.

My take – don't bother … check out Swingers instead 🙂

Tokyo Friends

No, I didn't go to Japan.  I went to a Japanese screening while at the American Film Market – Tokyo Friends.

I was lost in the first 15-20mins because it's based on an existing drama series and they just assumed everyone watching the movie has seen the series.  After a while, I figure it's about 4 girls and remembering your first dreams because it got lost while trying to make a living.  Sounds like everyone's life. 

It was an ok movie and would have worked better for me if I stumbled upon my Mum watching it at home on DVD.  There's no need rush out for this.

Except for Shannon and Ervin who would enjoy the eye candy 😉

LA has redeemed herself

Cineposium06 - 25AFM06 - 119AFM06 - 109

Usually when a work trip warrants that I go to LA, I get grumpy.  It isn't one of my most favourite places in the world.  The smog … yucks … the traffic … even worse but this trip :)  Evidently from the pictures, LA decided to be nice to me and I enjoyed mostly blue skies while I was there.  Also I had to do every little travelling on the crazy freeways which join the various parts of LA, so I was spared the endless wait in traffic.  Even the night sky didn't have that strange pink hue that is usually there because of the smog. 

Ok, LA is off my not-to-visit list … for now 😉
