Movies I've seen lately


We watched Hustle & Flow this weekend - it was SO good. I wish I'd watched it before the Oscars - I would have appreciated the song performance more. Now I really am glad that it won. We look forward to the Sopranos tonight.
We saw Brokeback Mountain last weekend - I found it slow and uncomfortable - not something I was looking forward to - I went because it was going to be the Oscars so wanted to understand what the fuss was. Robert made an interesting point that the music selection was not very good (anachronistic too - with a Steve Earle song, Devil's Right Hand - which was released about 10 years later - wouldn't have been so bad if perhaps a gun played an important part in the film, but it didn't) and that there was absolutely NO mention of the Vietnam war.
