I am leaving town tomorrow morning so one more cup of coffee and a cat picture before I go. We had a mellow mellow St. Patrick's Day yesterday just a few pints and some corned beef and cabbage. We rented Borat which I felt did have its funny moments but I still thought overall was the film was just okay. I think the half-life of this film is about 2 years before we see it again and wonder what all the fuss was about. In fact it felt a bit dated already after all of the hype, lawsuits etc... I have to give Sacha Baron Cohen credit as he does know how to make an audience cringe. The next post will be from Arizona.
P.S. I also have to mention that after watching 300, even with my diminished expectations, it was still disappointing. Who knew the Persian ruler Xerxes also could have doubled for a really tall version of the transvestite in The Crying Game? Also some of the scenes were reminiscent of the Castro district in San Fran on a Saturday night in the late '80s. It just needed a techno-dance soundtrack to complete the scene. The movie was beyond campy plus it directly ripped off Lord of the Rings a couple of times. Wait for the video (game).
