As absolutely fed-up as I get with the film program sometimes (it's pretty ridiculous and many of the people in the program are, as well), I really do love film. I have very little ambition to actually get into the cut-throat business...I think I'd be happier in a steady, office-type situation...but that's beside the point.

The point is that I really enjoy film and the following amused me as I tried to decide what movie I would see tonight:

It's rare to encounter a movie as aggressive in its ridiculousness as Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. So, credit where credit is due: This is an extremely ambitious terrible film. - Phoebe Flowers, "South Florida Sun-Sentinel"

That was from rottentomatoes.com. Needless to say, I won't be going to see Perfume in the theaters, instead I'll wait for DVD. But I was SO looking forward to it. Dustin Hoffman and Alan Rickman?! Sign me up!

However, I did find my theater-going experience for the evening. I'll be seeing Children of Men, which received a very high rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as coming recommended by my nephew. He said, "Children of men is a great movie but it makes you think!"

Because thinking is terrible. Ha ha ha. Cutie.

My other options were: The Good Shepherd, Freedom Writers, and Dreamgirls.

Freedom Writers was a close second for Hilary Swank and Patrick Dempsey (and I've heard it's actually good and not just the same-old story told again). I might wait to see if Mommy or Aunt Judy wants to see it (that and Dreamgirls...chick-flick-esque). And then The Good Shepherd because Matt Damon rocks, though the response was not good. That might be another DVD rental.

This post was all over the place, I apologize. I'm slightly distracted by the Patrick Dempsey on my teley ("Ellen" show, TiVo'ed).
