Next Weekend

With the impending release of the new trash movie from Jaba (now he says he's like to make the same type of film about Tony Blair) and the focus that will be on it's performance, I'd like to propose something.

We should all make a point of going to the theater to see something else. Preferably the same movie so it has an even better chance of overshadowing MM's filth. There are two possibilities also being released on June 25th.

My choice would be De-Lovely which is a story of Cole Porter. There is bound to be some fudging of the truth in this one, as well, and also a bit of propaganda - but the man and the music are so compelling it should still be de-lightful.

Another possiblity opening that day is Two Brothers - with tigers and Guy Pearce. I usually avoid movies that involve so much use of live animals (worry about their safety) and it is a French production (but in English, so no subtitles) which may put some people off.

There really isn't anything else to choose from that will be new. We could certainly all make the commitment to go see Shrek 2, or Harry Potter. I am sure they will both still be up at the top - perhaps we could go see both...send a message about what America finds entertaining.

What do you think?

I don't think there are enough people going to see it in the first place. But then again I'm naive about our Nations hate for Bush, he's just so loveable.

I am now leaning strongly in the Shrek 2 camp. Seems like the strongest, least offensive contender. Anybody wanna go with me?
