The Other Boleyn Girl

Oh my God, that was horrible. You know what? It doesn't even bother me that the movie wasn't like history, because movies so rarely are, and the book wasn't either. And it doesn't bother me that the movie wasn't like the book, because--well, movies so rarely are, and the book wasn't like history anyway, and also, I'm usually the first one up at bat to defend movie adaptations, particularly the Harry Potter movies. You know why it was horrible? Because it didn't make any damn sense. Collapse )

Okay. Whew. Now that I've got that out of my system, there's pretty much only one way to recoup two hours watching that clusterfuck. I don't know how long it'll take me, but you'll be the first to know when I'm done.

Not to knock my FURIOUS RANT OF FURIOUS ANGER re: The Other Boleyn Girl off the top of the page, but I just heard that Jeff Healey passed away, and wanted to share my favorite Jeff Healey Band song: "Angel Eyes." It's actually the only one I know, but I've loved it since--I was a kid in the '80s, I guess. I remember taping the song off the radio and pretty much wearing out the cassette--one of the great joys of getting to college and discovering file sharing is that I could finally have a full, real copy of the song for myself. So, you know, give it a try, and if you like it, look into some of his other work (and recommend some more to me).
