Title: Marie Antoinette
Director: Sofia Coppola
Media Type: Film
Reviewer: nakedcelt
Summary: Marie Antoinette's life is all parties, clothes, shoes, and shopping. And she's doomed, I tell you, DOOMED!

Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette has had some positive reviews, and also a few negative ones. This is going to be a positive one.Collapse ) I can recommend Marie Antoinette to anyone who knows their history.

Title: Lady in the Water
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Media Type: Film
Reviewer: nakedcelt
Summary: Do not see Lady in the Water. Just don't. No, seriously, don't.

I am never going to see another M. Night Shyamalan movie again.Collapse ) Do not see this film. Do not see it at the theatre. Do not get it out on video or DVD. If it comes to television, change the channel. It really is that bad.

Genre:  Music- specifically rock and roll, folk, blues, and a little bit of jazz on top
Artist:  Bob Dylan
Album:  Modern Times

Whoa Nelly, looks like Bobbie D. got off the road long enough to record some of those tunes that have been rollin' and tumbling through his head.  And what a weird album he's come out with.  It's been called the third of a trilogy of albums, starting with the morose and brooding Time out of Mind, and Love and Theft, which was a rolliking album with a heart of a old man cackling in the face of armageddon.

This one is different that those two, different than what I expected, and I think M.r Dylan likes it that way, that cackler.  It's esy going, with (musically, at least) barely a hard edge to it, at least till the last song.   It sort of tumbles along, a good sumemr album to while away the night, till September comes.

Until you listen to the lyrics, which are winking and twisted.  He claims he's used up, with a wink, while lusting after Alicia Keys.  "I've got the pro chops, she's got the pie."  Yes.  yes!  Almost as good lyrically as mop!  

The last song, Ain't talking, is worth the price of a suitcase full of aligator snakeskins.  Oh, me oh my, what a gutterly tune, full of haunted verses and intonations of doom.  

Well, that's modern times for you.  Don't beleive any of that claptrap about this being equilvalent of Yeats or Shakespeare, this ain't that, it's something all together different:  smirking at the apocalypse never sounded so fun.
