Somewhere I lost track of some of the films I watched the last two weeks, but that is part of my 2010 resolution, so it should not happen again.
Bedtime Stories - Dec 24
Well, not my type of movie but it had a few laughs. I had a few friends over for dinner and they also brought their daughter. While she is too young to really know what is happening, I just don't think they would enjoy watching Antichrist as the xmas eve entertainment. I wish I had A Christmas Story but no luck so this was the next best thing I had to watch. At least my guests enjoyed it.
Being There Dec 26
While I liked how it started and the overall concept, I didn't quite buy it in the end. I just didn't think they would all be fooled into thinking he was this brilliant person. Maybe I shouldn't say fooled, as Peter Seller's character was not trying to do something intentionally, but I don't think they would have all misunderstood him to be some genius that is able to convey a message for the common man. I've not seen Forest Gump, which I know it is sometimes compared to, so I can't say which is better.
