Movie Mania

The Mad Scientist is out visiting right now, and since the Brain is out of town, it is just us grrls left to our own devices. For someone like the Mad Scientist, no vaction is conplete without a challenge of some sort, so she has challenged us to see a movie everyday. So far we have hit three. First off was Garden State, written and directed by Zach Braff. Now this is a young film maker who we can expect big things from. Garden State was a truly enjoyable movie - quirky at times, poignant at times. The one downfall may have been Natalie Portman's character - how many times do we need to see a cute and quirky pretty young thing bring out the best in a brooding, lonesome guy?

Then yesterday, lured by a trailer claiming that it was made by the makers of Notting Hill, we went to see Wimbledon. Not the romantic commedy we were hoping for. Too much tennis for one thing. Secondly there was no ST (sexual tension) between the two leads. I just didn't really care if they got together or not. Now if Ewen McGregor had been the male lead instead of Paul Bettany, the movie would have had me at hello.

We rounded out the weekend with Mean Creek, another fabulous movie by a young writer/ director. Great acting by Rory Culkin and Carly Schroeder.

Good night, it is time for bed.

What is with the new garb on the weather pixie - does this mean fall is here?
