Why, Cillian Murphy, why you gotta be like that?
Why Red Eye? Remember those other films you were in, that were so great?
We loved you in 28 Days Later. You were so terrified and confused and brave (and naked).
We adored you in Breakfast on Pluto. You were sweet and vulnerable and beautiful.
What happened?
Why did you agree to make a Hollywood stinker? What happened to your lovely Irish lilt?
We understand that you have to eat, but we are happy to support films that are not formulaic and boring and ridiculous. Your character in Red Eye had no character. There were no surprises, no drama. The best part was that first head butt:
("he just Doherty'd her!")
After that ... nothing.
We felt nothing when you died. (No spoiler here - you could see it coming from the beginning of the film)
We were far more shocked in Breakfast on Pluto when the bomb went off in the nightclub, and you were worried that you had wrecked your stockings.
Please consider your films more carefully. You will be lost in the Hollywood machine and you are too special for that.

And another thing - you do not want to pull a Ewan McGregor with your career.
That's all I have to say.

Liar...you mean that's all you're GOING to say..not all you HAVE to say! ;) I (I guess I should say we as I am ALREADY burning copies) love my new mixes!! Thanks so much again...and I think I really do like Limblifter. I will have to purchase a whole CD. Ask Eva which one is best. LADY YOU ARE BAD FOR MY CREDIT CARD! Now I had to order New Pornographers, two CD's by the Weakerthans, Wilco, Bif Naked...and I will need to get some more Constantines, ya got me diggin' em! (are you using subliminal messaging or what??..)
;)

OH MY GAWD - now I know I need Buck 65 (his lyrics rock my mental jukebox!) and Hawkley Workman. Old Bloody Orange is good, but I am hooked on Striptease! (I just got done showering while listening and had to type up my thoughts).
xoxoxoxo

Oh Kellee, I am SO SORRY - this is getting to be an expensive habit for you.

What can I say - they are some amazing musicians. No subliminal messaging by me, however, you just have good taste in music.

The best part of that movie was when she stabbed him in the throat with the pencil, and then he wrapped something around it and was still talking and stuff. That was beyond stupid/

Barbara Bruederlin said...

And he could run pretty damn fast with a pencil tracheotomy too! I still liked the first head-butting incident the best though.

I liked this movie. Of course I was tired and all I wanted was a mindless action/suspense movie, so it dids its job well.

Of course Racheal McAdams might have something to do with it as well.

Kellee said...

Yes Barbarella - you should apologize as I am now awaiting shipment of my Buck 65 (GAWD - you REALLY got me into him - dead sexy lyrics in that deep voice-yummm!)and I am ALSO waitn on my first Hawklsey Workman - there were several the store could order, but I played in safe by getting the one you use in my CD'S - CUZ I JUST LOVE ME THAT STRIPTEASE TUNE! He makes me drool...
I am alos digging a couple of other bands I haven't heard yet - I might like the Unicorns...not sure yet.

Sean - I have to admit Rachel McAdams is very pretty - almost as pretty as Cillian Murphy. Every now and then I really enjoy a really bad movie, at which I can make snarky comments and feel oh so superior.

Oooo, Kellee, you won't regret it, I'm sure.
I'm not a hug hiphop fan, but Buck 65 is something altogether special. He's an amazing storyteller and Secret House Against the World is one of the best albums to come out last year, in my humble opinion. I just got an older one - Talkin Honky Blues, but haven't heard enough of it yet to form an opinion.
Hawksley is beyond description. I'm assuming you ordered Last Night We were the Delicious Wolves. It's really good, but I would also highly recommend For Him and the Girls. Best evs. And if you like Striptease, I have the feeling you will love the song Tarantulove. Lover/Fighter is a good album too, but more mainstream. If you ever get a chance to see Hawksley live - go. He is a master showman.
I'm not sure about the Unicorns either.

Sean said...

You ain't been sexin' kitten,
but now you're screamin',
your bare feet dancin' crazy,
in shards of wine-glasses.
The picture's blurry-blue,
what the hell's got into you?
Tarantulove.

Oooooooh Sean!!!!!!! You know it! Were you stripping when you were typing that?
