movie review 2

ok, im doing this in reverse. i actually went and saw fever pitch the day before sin city, but im posting it after. thats probly cos the second movie inspired such strong feelings in me that i just HAD to talk about it first. but now im going to talk about fever pitch which i actually liked, only its a week old so bear with me.

this one i went with julia, mark, rohini and suresh. so two couples and me. i think they feel sorry for me which is why they take me everywhere. anyway, so this movie is about this guy who is a huge sox fan, and his girlfriend who isnt such a big fan. you might think it was appropriate and all what with us living in boston and going with two guys who were huge sports fans, but youd be wrong. mark thinks baseball sucks totally. hes completely into soccer and in fact its julia who is the sox fan, but not as crazy as some of the people in the movie. and as for suresh he only knows cricket and so he insisted on making loud jokes about americans during the movie. i think he can be quite a pain sometimes, but if you ignore him long enough he shuts up. but more on that later.

so the movie went off pretty well. i liked the idea and i can relate to it. not taking any names, but some guys get so completely obsessed with some sport that everything else takes a backseat in their lives. and jimmy fallons tantrum when he misses a match because his girlfriend takes him to her friends bday party totally hit the target. the only thing i didnt like was that they tried to make his character to be a likable guy, but i though he was always trying waaaay too hard to be funny so ended up like an irritating clown. and the whole deal in the movie is how this nice guy becomes liek a total tool when it comes to baseball, so it fell flat cos i thought he was painful anyway. but then diff strokes for diff folks, so if his girlfriend liked him then i guess the point was made.

theres not much else to say about that except a question to all the sox fans. after all the tamasha of last year you've finally won the damn world series, so now what are you going to whine about. being popular losers is fun and all but can you handle being winners. i am quite proud of myself for coming up with that :)

    Mm. I did. There is a poster in my room, right over my bed. Its by dali. Its a top view of Christ on the cross. I just realised i had no idea why it was called the 'Christ of St. John of the Cross'.
    Makes no sense to me. Maybe thats y it is where it is.
