Even for the love of John Cusack, I can't sit though America's Sweethearts. Encore on demand, sits there on the resume/restart screen, judging me. I'm feeling like a failure atm, so happy thoughts are needed stat. I've watched the Secret, it's not good to dwell on these things. I need to eff my negative mood in the eye. Shakespeare once said "Focus not on the films that doth sucketh much, better those that rock hard or that shall", so here goes.
First Let's to cleanse palate with romantic comedy awesome. Saw 'The Proposal' with my best-friend on opening night, and have plans to see it again with my mother and a 3rd time with another pal who needs cheering up. It's the number one movie in America for a reason people = ).
When high-powered book editor Margaret faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she's actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon assistant Andrew, who she's tormented for years. He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own. synopsis by D-Man2010
Delightful green card scheme, for the win! Many times watching a movie and I question the casting choices. Often one person could have and others.... anyone else would've done it better or pulled it off as well. For example IMO Hillary Swank was the weak link in P.S. I Love You; and I believe many actresses Drew Berrymoore, Amanda Peet, Maggie Gyllenhaal, heck even Zooey Deschanel would have been a better casting choice. Such thoughts didn't even enter mind in this instance. Sandra and Ryan have great chemistry, and their acting skill and styles make the magic happen. I Can't think of any other actress who could have pulled this off to my liking = ). "The Proposal" is as great as "Made of Honor" was horrible. So go see it, all hail Sandy!!
The next flick that has me all giddy.... Evil genius Tim Burton is taking on 'Alice in Wonderland'. woot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes,the kiddies will most likely be scarred by his dark and twisty rendition, but sacrifices must be made lol. And I for one, am over the moon = ). Let's talk cast. The usual suspects Jhonny Depp and Helana Bonham Carter are down with L&c, as the mad hatter and the queen of hearts. * Channels Emeril* but then BAM!!!! Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. Pretty impressive, eh? but not quite enough to cause this level of fangurl squee... ah yes I forgot to mention Alan Rickman as the Catepillar and Stephen fry as the Cheshire cat. **Squeels, Faints,Dies ** Here's some image goodness:
