Saw The Bourne Supremacy, and though I liked it even more than the original, I strongly recommend that you find a seat as close to the back of the theatre as possible; the car chases tend to be shown from a first-person perspective, so I spent most of the movie feeling like I was on the Tilt-o-Whirl after three bags of popcorn and a hot dog. (I do, however, have a history of in-movie motion sickness. It’s the reason that The Blair Witch Project got to me so well. About thirty minutes into that one, I was about ready to lose it, only I didn’t realize that I was motion sick…I just thought I was really freakin’ scared. ) The film is good, though, and Matt Damon is as dreamy as ever.
I’ll be spending all of next weekend in the movie theatre as well. The fact that The Village is opening would normally be enough to make me excited, and the remake of The Manchurian Candidate should be worth watching. But after several months of gushing from people who saw it at Sundance, Zach Braff’s Garden State is what really has me pumped. People keep saying things like “brilliant” and “Oscar”, but all I needed to hear was "belongs on the short list of modern American films like Beautiful Girls…” and I was sold. So don’t call me next weekend. I won’t be home.
