So, I’m not supposed to post links (like this one
) without any insightful commentary (like this: tht sux ) so instead I’m going to give you a hot movie tip.
Last night, I saw a really good movie that's sure to become a comedy classic. It’s called Some Like It Hot
and it stars this great little actress named Marilyn Monroe. What a fun movie! Yeah yeah, I realize that this hot tip might not be as cutting-edge as you had expected, but we can’t forget a good movie just because it’s been out for a while. I don’t ignore my grandfather just because he’s a little outdated and smells kind of funny.
Also, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon make much
better women than Wesley Snipes and Patrick Swayze.
Imdb.com has some funny bits of trivia
about the movie, including my favorite one: “Marilyn Monroe wanted the film to be shot in color (her contract stipulated that all her films were to be in color), but [director] Billy Wilder convinced her to let it be shot in black and white when costume tests revealed that the makeup that Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon wore gave their faces a green tinge.”
So there it is. Some Like It Hot
is my current movie recommendation. Sideways
may be the new “it” film of 2004, but for a year that produced Blade Trinity
and a movie about terrorist-fighting puppets, that’s not saying very much.
Also, my favorite television show discovery of 2004: Twin Peaks
. I missed it when it first came out. Unfortunately, the Green Hills Blockbuster only has the first season for rent, so I have yet to find out who the murderer is. Also, did you know that Lara Flynn Boyle
used to eat food? Who knew?
