What Have I Been Watching?

Uggghhh, not even Daniel Day Lewis could save this one. This movie was awful awful awful. So awful in fact that I could not even finish it.
I am getting pretty excited for the new Christopher Nolan movie, Inception, so I decided to watch Memento. I had forgotten how much I like this movie, even if I do think the reverse storytelling is a little too "look at me! I am original and quirky." Guy Pearce is so great in this role, which made me think of another little gem with Guy Pearce. Nope it's not L.A. Confidential, which could be the obvious choice due to the Kevin Spacey connection.

It's actually Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Guy Pearce, drag queens, Australia...I am in! I think Guy Pearce is so underrated and I just love him.

I watched this movie the other day when I wasn't feeling well and Josh had John. So dark and sad. I don't know what I was expecting, but there is a storyline about a family with 4 kids and the parents are addicted to meth. My heart was literally breaking. Just thinking about it makes me sad. Seriously though, the movie would be an awesome cautionary tale for anyone who is even considering drug, specifically meth, consumption.

Finally, I watch IT last week. I could watch this movie every day of my life and never get tired of Tim Curry's performance. Magic.
