The Passion of Christ

Earlier tonight, I locked myself out of the apartment. I went downstairs to put in a couple loads of laundry and forget my keys. In that Choo-Choo couldn’t let me back in, I went looking for the building engineer. Thankfully he was around. I had to listen to him blab on for 30minutes about the goings on in the apartment building and neighborhood, but a small price to pay for locking myself out. In more important news, I went to see The Passion of Christ last Saturday. I didn’t write about it then, as I was unsure of my feeling […]

2004 Oscar Predictions

The Dreamers

Out shopping for shoes I didn’t really need, decided to take a detour to the movies. Ended up seeing: The Dreamers. Can’t say I really recommend as the whole thing was somewhat pretentious and a bore. But, if you end up checking this movie out, be forewarned that there is a lot of nudity and sexual activity. I knew it was rated NC17, but was surprised by the numerous scenes showcasing both male and female genitalia. I suppose the movie also got the NC17 rating as there is a hint of incest between two siblings (boy and girl) who end […]
