And it's never a good one, is it? Though you probably weren't expecting this: "Oh Bwunhilda, you'we so wovewy.."
We've been watching Looney Tunes Collections
discs from Netflix for ages, hoping to find "What's Opera, Doc?" (It's on Vol.2, Disc 4 if you ever need to know). I love every part of it, from Elmer Fudd's "Kill da wabbit, kill da wabbit!" to the love duet between viking Elmer and his sudden enamorata, Bugs in drag (bra on the outside
) with viking helmet and braids. But somehow, this is the weirdest part of the whole thing to me:( Collapse )
What in the HELL is going on with that horse? It's so fat and misshapen that it looks more like a melted wedding cake. Why?!?
The grownups watched In The Valley Of Elah
last weekend, partly because we have a weakness for Tommy Lee Jones. It was good (though the titty bar scenes were hardgoing), but dispiriting. I found myself checking afterward to see if the writer, Mark Boar, had also written The Hurt Locker
, and he had. The latter is a much better movie, despite the stars and great performances in "Elah." If you haven't seen it, I really recommend it-- it'll have you on the edge of your seat, and it's as agitating as its main character, but it's not at all depressing. Fascinating characters in volatile circumstances.( Collapse )( Collapse )
