    ★★★★★

    My mother is obsessed with the 1970s in the way that I am obsessed with the 1990s. It's a nice symmetry. I feel so lucky that my mother showed us "Grease" over and over again in our childhood. We didn't grow up with many movies before the 1980s. We didn't know many of the famous classic musicals that everyone raves about and references. But I know "Grease"! And we love "Grease"!

    The thing is, "Grease" is a movie and a…

    Being John Malkovich

    ★★★★

    I totally forgot that the last half of this movie is so good. I think that I've been watching the first half of this movie a few times over and over again since 1999 trying to get back into it. But I simply don't love that first half. I think that I did in 1999, especially Catherine Keener, but I got over it. It's just so dark (literally), so dismal, so sad. And it is about cruel people.

    It is…

    This movie is wayyyyyyyyyy too violent for me obviously, but it's the kind of movie that I can let play in the background while I am drunk, cooking, and rearranging furniture which is exactly what I was doing. I have to let it play in the background because it's way too sickly violent. It's better for me to be concentrating on other activities while it plays. Also, this is why I only watch this movie MAYBE once every 10 years…

    ★★★★

    This is one of those easy to watch, comforting, nice movies that I like and like to watch. Nancy Meyers's daughter Hallie wrote and directed this.

    What happened to Pico Alexander? He is wonderful here, so hot and so charming, and this movie was clearly intended to be a launching pad for him.

    My one hitch with this movie was always the fact that Reese's character took Pico's to task so fucking hard for trying to further his career. Imagine…

    I liked this better than I had expected to, based on its trailer, which I found really corny!

    It was cute!

    Rachael Leigh Cook was so cute. At first I was rolling my eyes at Rachael playing that typical nerdy character that she always plays, but then I thought, maybe Rachael is just like that? LOL. And they gave her this overly quirky car that I think can play only one song, ugh, which just happened on the show "Stumptown".…

    My local theatre showed "Groundhog Day" on the big screen, so I went to go see it, even though I own it on DVD. I'm really glad that I did. I hadn't seen it in a really long time. I always dread seeing it, because I feel like it's going to be painful. (Not because of the quality of the movie, but because of Phil's journey.) Which it is. And yet.

    There was a lot of laugh out loud moments…
