We went to see Walk the Line today. I typically don't really like biography movies, but I have to admit it was good. I've always like Reese Witherspoon, too, except that I've never liked any of her movies. Nice to have one that I can name now.

In other news, J & I have noticed a disturbing trend. Those portable dvd players that they make now... So, we were in a resturant in New Hampshire last weekend, eating at a random little family resturant, and this chubby family had a dvd player sitting on their table. TV dinner at a resturant. Today, it was a guy in the subway. Now, I'm a pretty wired person, I have my computer with me most of the time and I use the dvd player on long flights and so on, and I have my iPod (which I never use when I'm with people), but are we honestly so disconnected from the world that we need visual stimulation when we are out with our families? Come on!

Yeah, I have to admit that while I was painting at Solomon's today that I had my iPod earphone in one ear and that I was kind of talking to people at the same time while listening to music. I suppose that would put me in the same category as those people. at least I didn't totally ignore everyone, I only had it in ONE ear. . .
I just couldn't handle the music being played outloud that's all.

I also loved Walk the line. It was one of my favorite movies of that year. That and Munich. And I saw Crash yesterday. That was pretty good.

I liked Munich, but I really didn't make me think much afterwards (which is what I look for in a favorite movie) I felt that Spielberg had carefully crafted the film to make you have the exact same opinion when you left it as you had when you went in, except amplified.

Yeah, I suppose you are right. Crash seemed to be a thinking movie. almost made me think more than I wanted too. But maybe even though Munich didn't lead to a lot of "thinking" it did leave a certain feeling of horror in me. It left much more of a last impression than anything else I saw all year. And I wouldn't saw that what Spielberg wanted you to think was super clear about the Palestinian situation. I mean he's Jewish and it was told from that perspective, but I totally saw the other side's as well. Wasn't it such a commentary on current events? At least I saw it that way.

I think it did tell both sides, but in such a way that if you disagree you'd be able to ignore it. I think I would have respected it more if it had said more to either one side or the other
