Modern Romance Reviews
"I'd better buy some dope. I don't even have new sheets. I should get new sheets. I don't have any food here. I'm not prepared to get laid."-Robert Cole (Albert Brooks)
I didn't find it insightful, and it was scarcely funny. I did however find the sound mixing scene to be a knee slapper. Also George Kennedy played himself, which rocks.
I was surprisingly entertained with The Recruit. Pacino was the same old Pacino - no surprise, Colin Farrel was the same Colin Farrel, no surprise, Bridget Moynahan was cute, no biggie... but the story was actually something I liked. I like all that CIA crap since I was seriously thinking of getting into the CIA after college. Instead. I opened a comic book store. Go figure. Exciting movie. Watch it.
I think this is my favorite Disney movie. The songs, the story, the adventure. It's great. Jake & Bella enjoyed it too!

How many times did I have to put this on for Jake. I think its his favorite 'animation' type movie. The thing I love most of all from this music is Danny Elfman's score. That guy is a damn fricken talent!!!
I love Albert Brooks. And I love his nuerotic characters that he plays. Every one of them is... well... nuerotic. And in Modern Romance, he's just plain... NEUROTIC as ever.

I have always liked this movie. And when I sat down and watched it again I realized that I love it for the music, the story about a group that gets a quick shot to fame, the subtext of ONE-DERS turned WONDERS turned ONE HIT WONDERS, and ultimately their failure... It's also impressive that Tom Hanks wrote and directed the movie. Oh... Liv Tyler is hot in it! :) It's a real feel good movie!
And that's it... I think... If I can think of anymore I've watched since October I'll post.
