Elizabethtown

In the grand tradition of me watching movies alone while Jason is passed out on the couch - I ordered Elizabethtown (On Demand) on Friday night. It is a Cameron Crowe film and totally fell into his usual genre of films like Almost Famous. I liked it - especially since Orlando Bloom plays the main character - but it's a thinker. I don't know if I've completely finished processing it in my head yet. It's also not one with a huge story/keep you guessing till the end type of movie. There were some really nice moments and it had a fantastic soundtrack. I saved it for one of those nights where I was watching a movie alone b/c Jason had no interest, especially since he knows I HEART Orlando Bloom. I guess he's jealous. But I must say, while I think Orlando is totally dreamy - I like him better with his English accent (he played an American in this film). Kirsten Dunst was pretty cute in the movie too - I like quirky characters and this movie definitely had some funny and quirky moments.

Next on my "to watch by myself list"is Brokeback Mountain. Jake Gyllenhal (even as a gay guy) = MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

We just watched "Closer" with Julia Roberts and "The New World" with Colin Ferrell. I liked Closer more than I thought I would. It has definite R rated language, but the interplay btw the characters and the story are really interesting. The New World is really "artsy"-- a historical romance about John Smith and Pocohontas.

The New World is an artsy flick-- a historical romance based on John Smith and Pocohontas-- totally not what I was expecting-- rather odd in fact.

We also watched "Closer" with Julia Roberts. I wasn't expecting to like it, but L & I both liked it. It's a conversation starter. Has some R rated language, but worth seeing.
