Fancy Cinematic Footwork and Symbolistic Ambiguity

Somehow this has turned into my week of Hugh Jackman. Recently J and I went to see the The Prestige. Tonight we have free passes to catch a screening of The Fountain (a film I’ve been looking forward to for some time). And the little man saw Flushed Away with his grandma, and would like me to take him for a repeat viewing soon. This isn’t a problem. I like Hugh Jackman well enough. But if we ever, like, hung out I’d have to ask him to stay in character. He is way hotter when he is Wolverine. Is that so wrong?

All the talk this week has been of the PS3 and the Nintendo Wii. Folks are already camping out around town, in the cold, for the former. But the people I know are only interested in the Wii, and attempting to come up with plans to acquire said console. I’m not quite so compelled. But I’ll admit I am looking forward to Twilight Princess. Oh, and…of all things…tennis. Weird.

Bonus: How bizarre. Refrigerator trousers. Be sure to read the explanation.

    The last time we went to NYC, we saw Hugh Jackman and his kid in The American Museum of Natural History. My friend S commented that he had a freakishly small head .

    My son has been saving for months in anticipation for the Wii.
    We are excited!
    We are not buying a PS3. Doesn’t seem like a good deal to me.

    I’ve been intrigued by the Fountain too… I hear that the movie was done without CGI, like that’s a real bubble he travels in. But I’m a little scared to see it because I’m afraid the movie might be way more upsetting than the preview looks. Is it?

  4. Joe - I wound up paying close attention to his head size during The Fountain, and it did look unusually small.

    Denise - I hope you guys got a Wii. We were unsuccessful.

    Chel - it’s definitely worth watching, and not so upsetting. Just a little…disorienting at times.

    I’m going on vacation at the end of the week, so I’m hoping to take in a few movies while I’m away — definitely want to see The Prestige and The Fountain. Getting your hands on the Wii and PS3 seems impossible at this point. People are friggin’ shooting each other over them!!!

    You will have heard ‘Man cannot live on Bread alone’ - and our multi talented actor Hugh Jackman cannot live on ‘Wolverine’ alone. He has much more talent and shows you many many many different characters and can create excelent accents also. I love Wolverine as does Hugh himself but he knows as well as anyone that to type cast is to die.

    Watch this actor he is damn good, he is handsome, charasmatic, fun loving and has a great personality that leaps off the screen and extremely popular with anyone he works with.

    Forget Tom Cruise [now that is not hard nowerdays is it] Brad Pitt he turned The Fountain down and knowing a great deal more aboutthe film now he woudl not have been able to create three characters so very very different - you know it is called talent. Brad is popular but has not that talent to that extent
