Le Divorce

Last night I saw Le Divorce. It was neither good nor bad. Just sort of middle of the road. Below is description from movies.com: Isabel (Kate Hudson), an American film-school dropout, heads to Paris to help her eight-months-pregnant stepsister, Roxy (Naomi Watts), whose adulterous French husband (Melvil Poupaud) has left her. Roxy may face divorce and single motherhood, but the two siblings hit the social scene, and eventually Isabel finds herself in the arms of a 70-year-old man … a French diplomat who also happens to be related to Roxy’s cheating hubby. The chemistry between the sisters and everyone else […]

O Fantasma — NOT!

On the way home from work on Thursday night, I decided to get off before my stop and go to the movies. I’d read several reviews for American Splendor and decided I wanted to go see it. However, when I got to the local Landmark Theatre which shows a lot of independent movies, I found out that American Splendor was not yet out. I was totally bummed! But instead of going home, I decided to go see O Fantasma since I’d seen most of the other movies playing. Oh what a mistake. O Fantasma a Portugese import was just awful. […]

Here’s what’s written about the movie on their website: We’re going to take one day, Monday, August 4th, 2003, and make a documentary based on the CL postings from that day. Not just the “Best-Of” or the “Success […]

Reality TV Sucks

Someone else is writing about their 15 minutes of fame. It’s Gideon Horowitz who worked as a waiter on the NBC reality show: The Restaurant. One interesting passage from his blog: Originally, I wasn’t allowed to the premiere…they didnt want to mix business with pleasure…but a last minute call from the NBC press manager sent me on the 6 train to the restaurant in a hurry. Apparantly Extra wanted to do an interview with me. I actually did the whole red carpet thing…an experience I cant put into words…paparazzi were screaming my name ..”over here….over here…look to the right Gideon” […]
