Let's go to the movies (or HBO on-demand)
There is a theory out there that no music is "new" because so much has already been created. I am starting to think this applies to movies as well.
On Tuesday, after an awful day at work, I watched "The Girl Next Door." About twenty minutes into it, I was struck at how similar in tone and concept it was to "Risky Business." This movie deja vu also occurred after watching "The Garden State" and being reminded of "Beautiful Girls" (not just because they both starred Natalie Portman). I think this extends past traditional movie genres and more into a feeling that people sometimes have, which needs to be expressed creatively every ten years or so.
The Girl Next Door highlights:
Lots of hot nudity, Elisha Cuthbert (smokin) and an excellent performance by Timothy Olyphant of "Go" and "Deadwood" fame. Recommend viewing after three lemon drop martinis and three beers.
Dear LORD is it Friday, yet?
