Yeah yeah, everyone does this blablablah whinebitchmoan. I'm tired and I'm cranky cuz I didn't see Scott Pilgrim and I watched three other movies that I don't feel like expounding massively upon so you will read these haikus and YOU WILL ENJOY THEM. WITH YOUR FACE.
What's Up Tiger-Lily, Woody Allen's directorial debut (sort of) in 1966. He dubs over a wacky Japanese spy movie and turns it into a wacky comedy about finding the perfect egg salad recipe. Also there are bits of this band The Lovin' Spoonful spliced in. Hell if I know why:
This was funnier
When I was nine. Still, a good
hunt for egg salad
(two and a half catapults out five)
Bottle Shock, the based-on-a-true-somesuch thing where in 1976 Alan Rickman is a wine snob who sets up this tasting competition between asshile french wine-makers and plucky underdog american wine-makers. Guess who wins? Also Chris Pine plays a sexy hippie...just sayin:
Going mad for wine
Not bad, bit slow, but damn man!
Chris Pine's wig is bad
Finally, Tokyo! by Michel Gondry and two other directors I didn't bother learning the names of (neither are Japanese, incidentally). Three short, incredibly bizarre stories about life and alienation in one of the busiest cities in the world:
Chick turns into chair
And sewer leprechauns...Dude,
Tokyo is weird
Three vaguely disturbed catapults out five
I think I am beating my insomnia-with EXHAUSTION. 'Night!
(oh hey, new banner quote! Where did that come from?)
