For once, I'm glad I'm working 35-40 hours over the weekend- no time to see movies.

He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

I'm actively boycotting it. If I hear her shreik in that commercial one more time I'm going to scream

Do I really need this on my 2001 Film List?

I'm actually not seeing it, if you can believe that. The subject matter has no appeal to me and I don't feel I could write a good review from it.
I DO have a busy filmic weekend, with Innocence, The Musketeer and Hardball to see instead. May even catch Ghost World again since it just started in Victoria.
If Glitter comes to my local theater, I'll just see it there since it's free for me.

What's really sad about this film is due to the recent tragic events, this sugar coated feel good film might actually make some decent money at the box office.

I have no interest in seeing a 2 hour vanity show which allows a "star" to release her dangerous, high level, amounts of ego which is threatening to consume her bodily system.
Now a 2 hour movie showing Mariah Carey cracking up and being carted off would be a different story.

The film is ONLY opening in the top 40 markets. So if you don't live in the top 40 markets, you ain't getting the film.... so you people who aren't in the top 40 markets should be lucky.

I was going to go see it, but unfortunately I made previous plans to have someone hit me in the head repeatedly with a hammer.

I can't stomach four minutes of her music let alone an 1 1/2 of her on the big screen.
Now if she was totally naked...I might reconsider.
Maybe...
As long as she didn't sing but what are the chances of that?
Okay no way could I actually pay money to her even if she were naked. But I would rent the DVD with one of those rent one, get one free Blockbuster coupons.
It would be the free one.
I'd pay money to watch her have her third breakdown which she is surely going to do once this movie tanks harder then Battlefield Earth did.
THAT would be entertainment.

Rain, thanks for making me laugh (even though it proved to my coworkers that I was skiving).

Are you serious? This movie has got to be put on the worst movies of all time list that I have not even seen! I heard someone say something about Mariah's breasts on the big screen. If that were true I would definately go see it. But with a pg-13 rating, I seriously doubt we will have anything to get excited about.

Uh, my friends,
Those are her breasts! Money well spent, I say. She should have spent it on her face (oh wait...). Anyways, I don't expect this movie to do to well. When I pay money for two hours of a skank, I expect to see some XXX action.
Take care,
Chuck

He had a plan. Maybe you just didn't see it 'til it hit you between the eyes. But, it started to make sense... in a Tyler sort of way. No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.

Well, I saw this last night, probably will be the very last free movie I see as this week will be my last in 10 years of working at movie theaters. The movie was surprisingly entertaining, but I wasn't expecting much. It ain't "Purple Rain" but it does the job.
The movie takes place in 1983 but there are shots of the brand-new Pepsi logo and a couple songs that weren't out til 1984.
