Random Factoid #266

20 04 2010

Scott at “He Shot Cyrus” has inspired a second consecutive factoid.  This time, it was by his post that rattled off the names of some movies that precipitated a nice nap.

I’ve said in previous factoids that I have a hard time staying awake watching movies at night (particularly foreign ones), but I can only really think of one movie that put me to sleep in broad daylight.


“Lost in Translation.”  Bored me to tears and to sleep.

Noooooooooooooooo! This movie is so good.
Maybe you should give it another try. Sofia Coppola is incredibly underrated.
I’m not usually a huge fan of slowly-paced films but this one worked for me on many levels.

He Shot Cyrus

I’m sorry, but this is one of the few movies that I will NEVER watch again. Some movies I’m willing to try again – “There Will Be Blood,” when I have the time – but absolutely no here.

I honestly don’t understand how this can be classified as a comedy. Not only did I not find the movie funny, I didn’t find any sort of emotions in the movie.

I thought it was one of the funniest movies of the decade. While Punch-Drunk Love is in my top ten of the decade, Lost in Translation is probably in the top five (There Will Be Blood is up there, as well!). I probably watch it at least once a month.

I liked this one purely because of Bill Murray’s performance. I hate Scarlett Johansson. HATE HER. But Bill’s the man. He’s just getting better with age.

She was what really bothered me in this movie. I think we could have gone without the ten minute sequences of her looking puzzled at random tourist sites in Japan…

So happy there are others in this world that don’t like Scarlett Johansson. I told my dad and sister I really didn’t care for her and they both rushed to her defense. In every movie I have seen her in (“Hes Just Not that Into You,” “Scoop,” “The Other Boleyn Girl,” “Nanny Diaries”) she is incredibly irritating.

I liked her in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and “The Prestige” … but those were also directed by Woody Allen and Christopher Nolan. I am excited for her role in “Iron Man 2” … it should be interesting.
