sex, lies, and videotape
I guess I can see how this movie might have been seen as weird and transgressive when it came out, but the way it views sex is romantic to the core. Soderbergh just wants people to communicate, love each other. It's the kind of message I find cloying in a lot of other films. Not here, though.

Finally saw Breakfast at Tiffany's. Audrey Hepburn! I don't know about that Paul fellow, though. Handsome, sure, and he always did the right thing, but he spent the whole movie pouting. Drop the passive-aggressive correctness, already.
Yes, you're going to see Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones. These theaters have the digital projection system you need for...I mean, the special effects are the only surefire part of the movie, so you might as well get the most bang for your buck, eh?
If Star Wars was set in Glasgow. It helps if you imagine Begbie from Trainspotting saying all these lines.
