Tabitha and I went to see Punch Drunk Love last night. It was excellent, highly recommended, I’ve never been so stressed out during a romantic comedy. Everyone says you shouldn’t expect to see Adam Sandler play his usual self (to which I must say “no duh” and “thank god”) but he doesn’t escape his playbook of dopey smiles and furious yelling completely. Emily Watson was great too. Luis Guzman hardly had to be there but I was glad he was anyway. And Philip Seymore Hoffman had a great, albeit short, part and played it perfectly, like always.
There were a couple of great trailers before the movie too. Spike Jonze’s Adaptation with Nicolas Cage and Meryl Streep looks awesome. As does Confessions of a Dangerous Mind with Sam Rockwell, George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Drew Barrymore. Both have screenplays by Charlie Kaufman of Being John Malkovich fame.
I was reminded in all of this great movieness that I never saw CQ but still want to.
Lastly, we note that the trailer for Pixar’s Finding Nemo has arrived. Everybody go check it out. It’s great.
