    (oh, and I'm watching a Mavs vs Warriors game now.)
    We were considering getting the series..... and now I'm sure we will.

    I watched Amadeus.

    (haaaahahaha!)

    Toy Story 3, I don't see why everyone's like you'll cry. Yeah I got teary eyed a few times, but never actually cried. I thought it was a happy ending personally.

    Just saw the 1991 movie "Naked Lunch." I would characterize it as "Trainspotting meets the Rocky Horror Picture Show." A real freak show.

    It's set up as a 1950s who-done-it, but it's played out in the mind of a paranoid homosexual junkie. It's also a partly-biographical story of the Beat Generation writer William S. Burroughs trying to write a book as he wrestles with drug addiction and teeters on the edge of insanity.

    At first I was bored with it. It started with the characters sitting around and shooting up pesticides as a recreational drug to the point where they could breathe on bugs and kill them. The joke (and the movie) didn't seem to be going anywhere. But then the lead character kills his wife (as Burroughs did in real life), and the movie turns increasingly weird. Typewriters turn into beetles that talk through their anuses and send the main character on spy missions, people suck narcotics through penis-like appendages on aliens' heads, etc. Pretty soon I was howling with laughter.

    As movies go, it's definitely skippable. Mainly it's just weird. But if you're into weirdness/decadence, then it's worth checking out. I would say that it's memorable.

    Here is one of the original 1991 reviews of the movie: "Obviously this is not everybody's cup of weird tea: you must have a taste for the esthetics of disgust. For those up to the dare, it's one clammily compelling movie".

    A line from the movie:

    "Poor Bobo came to a sticky end - he was riding in the Duke Devanche's Hispano Suissa when his falling hemorrhoids blew out of the car and wrapped around the rear wheel. He was completely gutted leaving an empty shell sitting there on the giraffe skin upholstry. Even the eyes and the brain went with a horrible "shlupping" sound. The Duke says he would carry that ghastly "shlup" with him to his mausoleum."

    Enjoy!

    Last thing I watched: My family playing SingStar 80's... I didn't join in but it was amusing to hear all these songs I know by heart yet seeing the music videos for them, which I'd somehow never seen before. Amazing videos back then.



    FineLine: Ooh, that sounds interesting. I hadn't heard of it before. There are a few Cronenberg films I've heard are great but due to the gore I've heard is in them (like Videodrome) I've put off seeing them due to me being a wuss. Would you say this is pretty gory, or not so much?

    Twin Peaks has grown on me even more with each episode I watch! haha. A real treat.

    Also I've got Amadeus on my queue as well. I gotta watch that!

    Woo! I saw that the other night as well! For me it was crying happy tears. It gave me a huge feeling of overwhelming nostalgia, a lot in part due to the theme of the film itself but also because I've kinda grown up with these movies. I remember going on a date to see Toy Story 2 in the theater long ago. It's interesting to watch these characters grow up over the course of the movies. Seeing the ending tied up a lot of loose ends and so for me that was kind of sad - like saying goodbye to old friends. A bittersweet thing for me. It reminded me of my own childhood and toys I had in the past. Unfortunately I only have VHS copies of the first 2 movies and this made me want to rewatch the entire series again! Gotta remedy that problem.

    I'm a wuss though, so. heh

    Hmm. Hard to answer that one. I haven't seen his gory movies, so I can't compare.

    --"Naked Lunch" is full of grossness, but most of it is semi-humorous: Like lots of slime dripping from various appendages, or a headless half-centipede-half-human thing crawling around on the floor dry-humping everything (and everyone). The headless thing gets driven off by a Nazi maid with a horsewhip.

    --There is a fair amount of actual gore, but most of it belongs to bugs. And again, the presentation is so fantastic that it's semi-humourous. For example, there is a scene where two typewriters turn into big bugs and fight to the death: There is lots of detailed screaming and crunching and tearing of bug meat and blood-soaked keyboards.

    --There's only one 5-second scene that's vaguely horrific, IOW, that could appear in a cheesy, gross horror movie. Toward the end of the movie Lee hears Kiki and Yves going at it in the bedroom, and he walks in to see what's happening...

    Yeah after watching it I looked to see if the first 2 toy stories were on instant, they weren't so I went to clerkdogs to see what was similar and none of those were on instant either. But I was 90s kid, of course I grew up on Toy Story.

    I'm watching Dead Man, it's for class though.

    I just finished watching As good as it gets. I always come out smiling when I watch that.
    The doctor who xmas special, I watched as well. This one was really good. Matt Smith is growing on me. I love the universe that Stephen Moffat has created, it's much more surreal.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.

    Saw the remake of Arthur tonight. I thought it was pretty cute, actually. Russell Brand was both funny and touching, and handled the role very well. Helen Mirren was fantastic during the poignant parts, but not quite as great as Gielgud was in the sarcastic parts. There was just something about Gielgud's delivery when he'd zing Arthur. I keep forgetting the girl's name who did the Liza Minnelli part in the update, but I liked her--it's hard to play quirky if you're not Zooey Deschanel these days, but she did pretty well. I got kind of annoyed with Jennifer Garner's character, and I don't know if it was the casting or the fact that the part itself didn't really need to be a larger role.
