Stranger Than Fiction
Will Ferrell isn't always my mug of cocoa (Elf=inane), but I LOVE this movie. Emma Thompson is the kind of writer I want to be, minus the nicotine addiction and sparse home and social life. I love the voice. Also, Maggie Gyllenhaal is, I think, the only one who can make her character's tattoos not look uber-trashy. Dustin Hoffman is also hilarious. On that note, I really want a plush Master Shifu.
Midnight in Paris
Owen Wilson. Check. Rachel McAdams. Check. Ernest Hemingway. Check. What? Yes! Ernest Hemingway! F. Scott Fitzgerald! Picasso! I loved this movie. The message about nostalgia is great, but I'll still dream of days gone by, thank you.
This is a great example of what happens when writers take drugs: they become better writers. JUST KIDDING! That is what happens in the movie ... but not real life, little brothers.
Writers, go watch a movie!
