Papa-Bennett aka Sir Daddykins gets screeners for his BAFTA membership. The Bennett family gets the honor of checking them out of my father's library. I am literally counting down the months for my own membership... I have less than a year before I can join and the moment it happens... I will officially be committing social suicide.
MY SCREENER REPORT CARD THUS FAR:
Crazy Heart: B+ (rent it, was pleasant surprise)
Fantastic Mr Fox: B- (meh, you can miss it.
The Maid: A- (loved it, see below)
Broken Embraces: A- (Almodovar can do no wrong in my eyes)
An Education: A- (best acting I have seen in ages)
Up in the Air: B (pleasant surprise)
500 days of summer: B + (cute. I hate using that word to describe it)
The Proposal: C+ (I did cry though)
Nine: D+ (and I am being generous with the +)
It's Complicated: B- (meh, but nancy meyer's signature move of ample interior-design-house-porn & croissant scene kept me attentive enough)
STILL NEED TO WATCH:
Avatar- google "LieMAX"... interesting stuff
Where the Wild Things Are- heard it was awful
Julie & Julia- Will see it bc of Chris Messina. If you know me well, you know the story that goes with that.
Inglorious Basterds- I love Tarantino, hate gore. Why must these two things go hand in hand?
District 9- saw parts of it at work in the lunch room, not sure if I can sit thru the entire flick.
The Young Victoria- Dying to see
A Serious Man
A Single Man
Precious (side note- Sapphire who wrote the book, taught me writing my senior year at Trinity)
