Anyone for tennis? Wouldn't that be nice?
While we're on the subject of videos, if you are looking for something good, you won't go wrong with either The Family Stone or Match Point. Especially with Match Point, which was easily one of the ten best things I've seen in the last year or so. I blog-raved about it already, but if you're not a Woody Allen fan, don't let that frighten you off. It's not his typical stuff. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (a current IT boy for the gays) is phenomenal in this, as is Scarlett Johansson. And I also posted about The Family Stone already, but I feel the need to reiterate that the trailer was a stinker and the movie is quite good. At turns funny and poignant, I was charmed. I'm a sucka for family holiday fare, though. Doesn't it seem like there's something in it for me if I can convince you to check these out? I just want you to be happy, darling.What am I watching? How sweet of you to ask. Well, besides the aforementioned BBM (first time on video, third time overall), not a lot of movies. I'm finishing Season 2 of QAF, then on to the last season of SFU. None of that tonight though, since it's a FEAST of my favorite tv shows. Alias is on opposite TAR and the second part of an amazing House episode is on opposite Lost. It's TiVos and VCRs a-whirrin' at chez ME tonight. Take that all of you with your fancy real lives!
