|09.08.06||Alamo South Lamar|| ...So I forgot that my parents go to sleep at like 10... their time. Before they zonked out though I took them to Alamo South to see a new release. They got some flavor of typical Alamo audiences, waitstaff, and adreel. When the vintage trailer started with a shot of a german shepherd jumping through brick walls, my mom had a moment where she thought she actually knew what it was and said "rin tin tin!" and then the title flashes up: Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood. heh heh heh.|
Anyway, just to fill in a whole to my blog entry from last night, my parents got in late but they rented a car and were too tired to do anything so I was off the hook by about 10:30 in the midst of that Chronicle Brouhaha... today though they called me alltogether way too early. I probably should be sleeping now but it's a few minutes before midnight and that's just against my nature.
So this movie... I dunno, I was a little tired so I think that stretched the pacing a little bit but for the most part I liked it; thought it was pretty good. Maybe I'm just insane but I think this is the first "actory" type roll for Affleck that I didn't feel was over his head. Of course he gets the best part... like gee, making out with a horny Diane Lane is such a task... I really don't know how he did it... although I think Diane Lane looks her most Joan Allen-esque in this movie... the two kind of confuse me enough as it is already... but anyway... yeah i thought it was pretty good. Very reminiscent of The Black Dahlia though in more ways than one... man I really hope that movie is good.
