Man vs. Prawn: A First Response to “District 9”.

There are many many ways self could think of to describe this movie:

  1. Intense political satire
  2. Man vs. Prawn
  3. Kafka meets “The Hurt Locker”
  4. Kafka meets “The Blair Witch Project”
  5. a modern re-telling of a Biblical parable (Job, of course), transmuted to Johannesburg

The writing was very clever. Kudos to director Read the rest of this entry »

Approx. Five Hours Later . . .


Self is just back from the movie and —


Self’s a mess, a complete mess! She was literally blowing her nose into the kleenex for the last 30 minutes of the movie! Tears were falling so copiously from self’s eyes that she actually had to wait a few minutes while the credits rolled to collect herself! Because it would have been just too embarrassing to present from the darkened movie house with eyes swollen to the size of golf balls!

Since she knows dear blog readers expect some modicum of commentary, self will pull herself together to share the following responses:

Rachel McAdams exposes her butt for the first time ever in this movie, and it is quite a beaut.

Eric Bana is — OMG, OMG, OMG, self can’t speak. Suffice it to say: McAdams + Bana = romance-like-you-would-not-believe.

OK, this just blows “500 Days of Summer” out of the water. Guess self is a sucker for TIME TRAVEL! (Thank God the rules of time travel, at least in this movie, are that it can only be accomplished when one is buck nekkid! And thank God the film-makers had the immeasurable foresight to choose someone with Eric Bana’s physique!!!)

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
