PenelopeJuly 24, 2008
I was going to post about my reactions to all the gender in blogging comments I’ve been reading of late, but it’s already 9:25 am and I have GOT to attempt to rein in this blogging addiction I have! (my butt hurts from sitting in this chair the last 3 – THREE!!! – hours and I haven’t even peeked at what’s rockin’ on my book blog yet.)
SO, I’m going to tell you just a bit about a movie I saw the other day: Penelope. I saw this solely on the idea of my nose being my least favorite body part. Cursed!!
I have two words: JAMES. and McAVOY.
I didn’t even realize he was in this! I want to see Wanted with Angelina Jolie, I swooned for him in Atonement. It seems like I just saw something else with him in it but the list isn’t helping me recall what: (his page on imdb.com)
He was Mr. Tumnus in The Chronicles of Narnia – LOOOOVE this series… Apparently he plays a doctor in The Last King of Scotland and YES! (you have to ask?) I will see Becoming Jane !!! (I’ve seen the trailer a bunch and as soon as hub goes on another work trip, I’ll watch the whole thing a few times - I watch a lot of my chick flick choices when he is out of town.)
He has that unidentifiable MUST-WATCH quality…
Another actor in Penelope that I think is good is Peter Dinklage; see The Station Agent. One of those movies I could watch over and over.
OH, I’m sorry. You want to read a review of the movie? It’s about a girl who is cursed to have a pig nose and what she has to do to be ‘beautiful’ again. It’s good, it’s fun, but not great.
