Okay, but there is one very hot scene...

Wooo! Hot monk sex!

Well, there is the one scene with Adso (the young monk played by Christian Slater who claims he lost his virginity in this scene) and a peasant girl... It's actually surprisingly very sexy, probably because it's sort of real. It's awkward, strange and kind of weird. I think that's what's sexy about it: it's very different from the usual coreographed love scenes that hollywood often makes.

Otherwise, the movie is OK. I liked the book a lot better and now I want to re-read it. I think the movie focused more on the "mystery" which was less important in the book... Ah well, more stuff to read. :D

Very funny, cute animation

Posted : 11 years, 9 months ago on 24 September 2006 07:53 (A review of The Road To El Dorado)

This movie is hilarious. Very few movies make me laugh out loud, and this one has made me laugh out loud many, many times. Every time I see it (and since I have kids, we've seen it a lot), I laugh. The dynamic between the main characters, Tulio and Miguel, is terrific. The female lead is an awesome character, too. She's curvy, brave and very smart. The chief is also interesting. He's a huge, huge man, but all the stereotypes about fat people do not fit him at all. The horse is a great addition whose anticts do not detract from the human character's charm.

All in all, it's very enjoyable, fast paced and beautifully animated. And I hope you, too, laugh out loud. :)

Quirky movie, fun

Posted : 11 years, 10 months ago on 20 September 2006 03:14 (A review of Dorian Blues)

I really enjoyed Dorain Blues. I picked it up because the title reminded me of "Dorain Gray," by Oscar Wilde. This movie really doesn't have anything to do with the Wilde novel, except in a sort of small thematic way... I think it's a spoiler if I say how.

Dorian's journey to understand himself and come to grips with "who he is" is handled really well, with humor and quick editing. The scenes are all emotion-packed and this really plays to Dorian's state of mind.

Lots of fun!
