Row Q seat 10. Awesome. Well, this whole movie is a guy in a box so I don't need to see the right side of the screen, right?
Again I was reminded of Hitchcock, this time Lifeboat due to the set constraints. This one takes it a bit farther in that it's just one actor... sort of like Phone Booth but without the crappy direction, performances, or script. I have to say they pulled it off. A whole theater of people spent a few hours with Ryan Reynolds in a wooden coffin and I for one didn't really get all that bored. I also respect the ending. And I love how even in a voice-only performance, Steven Tobolowsky is still typecast as a nerdy slimeball.
Ryan Reynolds in person... it's kind of a deal where he's really funny and charismatic and personable and that makes me hate him that much more. Like with his career and health and bone structure and everything else, couldn't he at least be an asshole? Nah, he seemed like a cool dude. Fucker.
So even without staying for the midnight movie, I still didn't get home till 1. I'm sure this will make Friday morning's work that much more productive. Yay!
