WALK THE LINE


It's hardly late-breaking news that I finally saw a movie that came out in the U.S. 6 months ago but what the hell. I saw Walk The Line last night, which was much better than I had expected. The acting was good, the screenplay was good, and I can't believe the actors were able to learn to sing like that for their roles.

The thing I loved most, though, was that Johnny Cash proposed to June Carter, like, 58 times before she said yes. As much as the idea of marriage is somewhat repulsive to me (especially the wedding bit - EW), I pray this is the way it went down in real life. I need to believe that this kind of romance could potentially happen. Of course, this only works if the guy isn't a scary stalker who makes your bagel sandwich every day at the office canteen, and only if you were in love with him to begin with. In which case you'd likely say yes before forcing him to ask the same question 58 times. So, okay, I guess this kind of romance is not something that would happen in real life. SIGH.

On the subject of Hollywood illusions, I ran across a picture that embodies every reason I've never liked Jude Law, on the laudable celebrity goss site Pink Is The New Blog. My friends can't understand why I find this media-proclaimed superhunk so gross. For starters, here's one reason:


That's right, folks. He wears his boxers and trainers that look like duck feet when he goes jogging - as if he doesn't look strange enough when he's exercising. Besides that, I just get the impression that he's petite, prissy, fashion-y, pompous, and letchy. There's also something sinister about him, which I haven't been able to pin down as of yet. At any rate, click over to the site now and check it out - it really is some of the best, most entertaining, hilarious trash out there in an easily digestible, fast-loading, regularly updated package.

That is hilarious about Jude. I just hope that he keeps that front button on his boxers tightly fastened while running..otherwise he could be popping out unexpectedly.

And I haven't seen Walk the Line. But my sister saw it and hated it. She said it was barely better than a made-for-tv movie on Lifetime.

Good point. Hadn't even thought of that - hopefully he's wearing the boxers that can be buttoned shut.
