Movie Night


In an attempt to save money—I want another computer and a trip to Paris soon—I’m staying in tonight and watching a couple of movies. I’m about an hour into The Tourist which is just about as big of a piece of shit as you get with big budget movies. Of course it has a totally comic book villain. Why does Hollywood insist on doing that? As I have said over and over again, the principal in Ferris Buhler’s Day Off is more menacing than most of the stupid twats in these movies. To show how evil they are they should have the villain smash a puppy with a coal shovel. Now that would be menacing.

The movie is certainly beautiful; I guess that’s what a budget of tens of millions of dollars can buy (I suppose the script wasn’t in the purchase price). Seeing beautiful landscapes, even more beautiful cities, and a thoroughly modernistic high-speed train I can only wonder what right-wing assholes think about Europe. According to them Europe is some sort of socialist shithole. I didn’t mean to go off on a leftist tangent but this movie totally sucks. I’m not even listening to it most of the time as I have my headphones in the TV and I take them out when I tend to the focaccia I’m making…more on the focaccia later after I find out how it turns out.

OK, the final appraisal is that the movie was completely awful. I’ve felt more tension during a commercial for athlete’s foot medicine.  The focaccia was great.  I fast-forwarded through the movie so I think I will go out tonight after all.
