I’m pretty sure this was my exact reaction to the following movies: Bambi, Dumbo, My Dog Skip, Marley and Me, War Horse (the latter was just last year and I soaked through 17 tissues — I counted). Usually my kryptonite is ANY MOVIE with animals but these kids are a little more sensitive to their own mortality, as expressed through “feel good movie” The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
I feel slightly sadistic laughing at the two brothers, whose parents recorded them on the ride home from the theatre. It’s probably so funny because we’ve all been there.
What movie always gets you?
This is one of the most enticing interviews we’ve seen Larry King do in a long time. As we all know, CNN recently severed ties with Larry King and he’s looking for a new gig. In Larry’s would-be Animal
KINGdumb KINGdom — a shoe-in program for Animal Planet — he asks animals the tough questions you want to know.
King asks a very unresponsive sloth whether he’s experienced a double standard in film and whether War Horse should have been called War Sloth. Then, he asks a tortoise when he first became sexually active.
The show looks promising, don’t you think? But really, I never realized King was so funny. If you’re teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel I suppose you’re bound to be.
The Oscars are just over a week away and while I’d love to cave-in temporarily at the theatre to catch this year’s nominated films, I also have to work… and eat… and sleep. Luckily, we found this movie mashup of the films nominated for Best Picture and it’s only a minute!
This year, the nominations are: The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, War Horse.
Now if only we could get a compilation for all the other categories. Who are you rooting for?
