I don't have it in me to write this with the flair I would wish.
I went to see Stranger than Fiction last night. Here are the things that occurred to me to write down in my little Moleskine notebook, presented in a less than fully fleshed-out manner.
"Wednesday" has a "d" in it.
If Amélie had been an American film, it might have sounded a lot like this film at first. I loved Amélie. So this observation makes me angry.
There's that Fractured Fairy Tales sort of vector animation again.
And there's that guy from the Sonic commercials.
By simply not getting any more or less attractive, Linda Hunt has now surpassed Tom Hulce in attractiveness. Which is thoroughly dismaying.
The fat people sitting to my right laugh at all the most obvious and disappointing places. I'm sure they go to Ren Faire. I'm sure of it.
They cast Will Ferrell to play alongside every short actor in Hollywood, it seems.
"It's been a very revealing ten seconds."
Who would sit on the buckle of the bus?
Spoon soundtrack. Yay!
"Aren't you relieved to know you aren't a golem?"
Smoking in the rain gives the appearance of ruling.
Hey, look. A Moleskine notebook.
"Who in their right mind, when given a choice between pancakes and living, chooses pancakes?" Me, probably.
And then it went and got life-affirming. I hate that.
The apple on the ground reminded me of The Great Orange Adventure.
Why does my dad love Queen Latifah? I hate her.
Sue Grafton in plastic.
What would have killed me is reading that manuscript on a moving bus.
Heart-shaped cookie provokes "awwwww" from Ren Faire folk. *Shakes fist.*
What do you want to bet this ending was a compromise?
"Even if you avoid this death, another will find you...It's the nature of all tragedies."
