This Woman's Work

Well, I was going to title this post A Girl In Trouble (is a temporary thing), but it struck me that I may have used it before - and my hunch was correct. After doing a little looking around, it was utilized when blogging about Knocked Up in June of last year.

Anyhoo....we went to see Juno yesterday afternoon. I know I know - as Rebecca (my lord - have you people pre-ordered her novel yet?) pointed out in email on Friday, that we just went to a movie!

C'est vrai - we did. But my one-a-month movie promise to the bf still stands - and we did not see one in I think I'm still good. And as he pointed out, if I surpass the 12, I get extra bf-points - though I'm not 100% sure they are redeemable for anything.

Well....back to the movie. Would it be presumptuous to say it was the best of the year? Especially since it is only the second one of the year? Yes, Jon and Morty - I know you both think I never like anything, so I'm here to prove you wrong!

It was great! Not only does Ellen Page deserve her Oscar nomination - we both felt she should probably win too. The storyline and script were good and the entire cast was strong - even if you might not like their character(s) from time to time. The soundtrack is fun too, but I'll wait for my niece to get it and just have her burn me a copy.

The problem was with the previews. I don't know what the hell I'm going to see for March and beyond. Certainly nothing they advertised. The one about Anne Boleyn has potential (I mean it does have a 3/4 nekkid Eric Bana!!!!), but for the life of me, I cannot figure out why Scarlett Johansson is in so many movies....or any for that matter. It surely ain't due to talent. She is like the Daryl Hannah of the 21st century.

As for the image I used for this post? You'll have to see the movie. Yeah, I could have easily put in a movie promo pic, but I'll make you work for this one a little bit.
