Update: I had a very good weekend. Fun times, enoyable time spent with people I like. Couple of annoyances, like having a headlight on my car go out Friday night, and having to replace it Saturday ($17.51 for the bulb, which isn’t bad, just an unexpected expense with shitty timing), and how freaking HOT it was Friday and Saturday. Stressing out over money – I’m on stupidly tight funds until July 10th.
Saw The Proposal on Friday night. It was cute, funny, pretty good. Despite the whole “chick flick” stigma, it was a solidly enjoyable movie. I was previously misinformed, however, as to the amount and extent of Sandra Bullock’s nudity in the film – definitely could have used more of that, IMO. ;)
Additionally, saw The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen yesterday afternoon on/as part of Kara’s Birthday celebration. It was OK. Some of the Bayhem-isms on the film annoyed me. The spinning camera around Shia and Megan in one scene was really, really irritating. It downright made Kara queasy. The massive, excessive overutilization of Shakycam also bugs the crap out of me. It’s not limited to this film, or Michael Bay, it seems to be used in practically everything now for action. Such a horrible blight on the film industry. That needs to either die entirely, or be relegated to very limited, “special” usage when it’ll actually accentuate a scene and give it more impact due to its rarity.
T2 is worth seeing. Especially on a matinee if you can. Does it have flaws, problems? Oh hell yes. It also has giant robots fighting, and a few very funny moments (Sam’s mom at college was great).
