I started watching this pseudo-gangster/coming-of-age flick called The Narrows but it was unbearably boring, the only good thing about it was Vincent D'Onofrio, who was that quirky cop on Law and Order Criminal Intent before he was replaced by the far quirkier Jeff Goldblum.
Possibly because if they were on-screen together the sheer amount of quirk would turn the show from a police procedural into the movie Juno. And no one wants to see Jeff Goldblum as a sassy pregnant girl. And if you do, please don't tell me.
So yeah, the film was dull as hell, I couldn't even bothered to finish it. And when a film loses my interest, well you're definitely doing something wrong. I've sat all the way through the Princess and The Frog, Horton Hears A Who, X-men 3 and the remake of The Wicker Man for crying out loud! To be fair, The Wicker Man is absolutely amazing in the worst way. You know you have a terrible horror movie when it's this easy to make it look like a legit comedy:
Just watch it. It's worth it to see him to roundhouse kick Leelee Sobieski into a wall. And also steal a bike while dressed as a bear. I'll say this for The Wicker Man, it may be a cinematic abomination that is inexplicably dedicated to Johnny Ramone, but it sure ain't boring.
What else? Not much. My life is a dull one indeed. Probably going to go see the fluffy owl movie this weekend. I've never read the books and upon hearing the premise "it's like Lord of the Rings...but with owls!!" I should be put off. But I'm not. Personally I blame those fuckers 30 Seconds to Mars (who I usually hate) for somehow making a trailer about goddamn owls that is mostly nothing but flying and vague mentionings of "the guardians" ...good?
See, I should be thinking "this about owls. By the Happy Feet guys. This is stupid" but then that epic fucking music starts playing and it's all "Oooh! Adventures, shiny things! Bad-ass old owl-dudes!" and also "hee, that owl has a fluffy mohawk"
And then I become rather frightened that I am seen as an adult in the eyes of the law.
This is Sugary Cynic, totally not humming along to the song. Honestly. For reals...I hate you Jared Leto. So much. 'Night!
