When You're Strange

Wow .... this is one of the best documentaries I've seen in a long time. American Experience on PBS does it again. Johnny Depp narrated this excellent documentary on the Doors. What these 4 guys did in 5 or so years is stinking amazing! All those songs. Yea, I know they had a lot of great songs, but man, they had a lot of great songs! Jim Morrison ... what can I say that hasn't been said. The man was meant to be a rock star. The show had this dead ringer for Jim Morrison, it was pretty scary.

I've also watched bits and pieces of a few movies over the past few days.

Zack and Miri make a porno. What is it with Kevin Smith movies? I like them for the most part, but Kevin Smith seems to want to make films only to push the limits. He has an affinity for feces, which is funny ... I dig a good poop joke as much as the next person, but this porno movie really took it too far. Loved Tracey Lords in the movie. She was funny.

I forgot that George Clooney was in From Dusk Till Dawn ... what's wrong with me?

and on the OMFG I want my 2 hours back ... The Proposal ... argh!!!! I'll go ahead and say that I cannot believe why in the world she won an Oscar for the Blind Side ... ok, I haven't seen it, but I have a feeling that the scenes they show over and over and over and over are pretty much it. She plays some rich woman with a badass attitude ... big whoop. So this proposal movie ... stuuuuuuuuuuuuupid!!!!! She plays some tragic bitchy woman who is going to be deported, so she dupes her stupid assistant into marrying her .... and it goes straight to stupidland from there. Awwwww and they finally end up being in love. Blech. Now I'll say, Betty White was cute, but it's no reason to waste your time!
