01. i saw revolutionary road
this weekend. i was struck by:
-how much it felt like a play. closer
was a play that really worked as a movie; revolutionary road
is apparently based on a book but i was watching it with subtitles, and kate and leo's line deliveries and dramatic gestures did make it feel really play-like.
-how much leo's character was like pete campbell from mad men
, only slightly less of a sociopath.
i'm of the opinion that if you like the movie, you'll love mad men.
it has a lot of the same elements, the same ambiguity, but i feel that it's done better.
has really kicked it up a few notches, especially with last night's episode.( and all that crap about your family )
03. in fact, maybe it's time for us to talk justified
. i've really enjoyed it so far, and the preview for tonight's ep looks like it is also going to be great. now i want to read some elmore leonard.
! ( on to the spoilers! )
05. on sunday i just watched an old episode of community
for the hell of it (it was the phys ed one). i do love that show, and i wish it would come back on, but apparently it's coming back the same week chuck
is, which makes me sad. i can't wait until the DVD set comes out so i can get more people watching. =D
06. i would be so happy if scifi would air reruns of mst3k once a week like they used to. even on saturday mornings, like they used to. *sigh*
07. part 2 of the law & order: criminal intent
season premiere tonight. i hope everyone currently alive stays alive and that there is more hugging and marriage-feigning tonight.
