Chapter 27

This is the movie that Jared Leto got fat for. It’s about Mark David Chapman, the guy who shot John Lennon. It was an all right movie. Nothing too special, but it was interesting to see what was going on in this guys head, and everything he did (or didn’t do) up until the murder. Pretty creepy, but pretty slow. I thought Leto did an excellent job.

Out of Sight

This is a movie from ’98, with George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. It’s a comedy/romance/crime/everything else kind of movie. That may make it sound awesome. It’s not awesome…It’s not bad, but it’s not awesome. It was just your typical “that was a good movie” movie.

Special is about a guy who thinks he is meant for more than what he’s been doing in his life. He starts taking an experimental drug which, he believes, gives him super-human powers. He starts trying to fight crime with his new powers. It’s pretty amusing at times. It’s pretty emotional and heartfelt as well. This is an independent film, and I’m not sure if/when it’ll be available on DVD. It’s not the best movie I’ve seen in a while, but it’s worth a viewing if you get a chance.

A Prairie Home Companion

Maybe you have to listen to the show to really get this movie. I didn’t get it. It was interesting at times, but for the most part it was just boring.

Seen any of these? Got anything to say? Bring it.

    A few things:

    1. I have not seen any of these.
    2. I just got Spacecamp in the mail from Blockbuster. That’s right!
    3. I am revamping my blog to be a movie and sometimes book review site. Whenever we see a dollar theater movie, you can post a review either on my site or on yours and I will prominently link to it.

    what do you think?

    sounds good.

    we’ll just both do reviews and paste both reviews on both sites.
    or is that overkill?

    i listened to the radio show all the time with my dad (PHC) and the knowledge of it actually aided my win in a game of trivial pursuit.

    i thought the movie was good except the dumb stuff about dying.

    i thought the dying stuff was the only good part.

    must be the difference between a listener and a…not…listener…
