|Saw Something's Gotta Give on Saturday, funnier and a lot better than I expected. I didn't think Diane Keaton's performance was THAT amazing; it was good, great even, but Oscar-worthy? She was a little perky and girlish (not that those two characteristics are illegal after the age of 30) for me, but she managed to come across as a breathing, living woman with fear and heartbreak, as much as the comedy would allow. Much better than I thought. 3.5 stars. Very funny, recommended.
Nottinghill was crap. Julia Roberts totally phoned it in. Boring. Ugh. 1.5 stars.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 days. Not that great overall, but I liked the two leads, thought they had real chemistry, and a sweetness at times. Kate Hudson's character bugged massively at times, despite the intentional set-up, and Matthew McConaughey's character was arrogant and womanizing in the beginning, but that quickly disappeared for the movie to focus on Kate Hudson, so the arc was meh. 3 stars.
Cold Mountain. Impressive story. Good directing. Very cold, very lonely, and tragic. Excellent depiction of the senselessness of war, the cruelty and irrationality of mankind, but also some amazing friendships and familial relationships developed. Jude Law is one perfect, talented, gorgeous speciman of man. Wow. Wow. Between this and Dickie Greenleaf in Talented Mr. Ripley, he's...I'm....just... Oh, marry me already!
Alias was crap. I can't watch this show anymore. My second last beloved character has been assassinated. Oh Sark, how can such an incompetent, uncharismatic woman turn you into lustful boy? Where's the cool, unflappable killer with a sharp sarcasm and aloof personality? David Anders can have chemistry with an inanimate object, but Lauren is so much less than that. I can't watch them kill Jack too. Don't like this paternity questioning, the Sloane romance, the missions don't have meaning anymore, and there is no tension whatsoever. What happened to creativity? Everything's so manufactured and stale. This is horrible.
