Maid In Manhattan

Girl Movies, Romantic Comedy, Voldemort No Comments »

For some reason, every time I turn on the tv a movie is playing with Ralph Fiennes in it. It also happens that until the last Harry Potter movie comes out, he is going to be Voldemort to me. So every movie is now experienced with Voldemort glasses. For example, Maid in Manhattan is the story of Lord Voldemort falling for a maid while he is running for Senate. He thinks she is wealthy because he saw her wearing someone else’s clothes. Once he finds out that she is really a maid, he hits her with the Avada Kedavra curse.  You don’t mess with Senator Voldemort.  By the way, can something still be a romantic comedy if nothing funny happens?

Choke

Comedy, Drama, Sundance 1 Comment »

Choke is a movie directed by Clark Gregg based on a novel by Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club.  Choke is exactly like Fight Club except the main character works at a historical theme park instead of an office.  And rather than visit support groups for ailments he doesn’t have, the main character Victor attends sexual addiction meetings that he does need.  So imagine Fight Club with a sex addicted historical theme park worker with a best friend instead of a split personality.

The movie isn’t really as bad as that makes it sound.  And the main character isn’t mad at the world like Tyler Durden, he is just mad at his mother. I might not watch this movie a second time, but I also didn’t find Sam Rockwell annoying.  So it is win win.
