I’m not blogging, and I did not fall off the treadmill, or the stairmaster, or whatever it’s called, or is. I did, however, bump into it by accident, because I forgot it was there. And then I forgot that I bumped into it. This caused a mild injury to my chest area that I, due to a lack of memory, mistook for signs of an as yet undetectable breast tumor. In the midst of having my breast flattened to within an inch of my life/mammogram, I suddenly remembered bumping into the exercise type machine apparatus thing and tried to get out of the mammogram room by claiming it was all a terrible mistake. It was a ridiculous scene and I’m still trying to forget it. But I now realize why they torture people to jog their memory.
None of this matters of course, because, as I said, I’m no longer blogging because I’m now pretending to exercise full-time. What I’m actually doing here today is some more movie reviews.
The Other Bolelyn Girl – In this movie Natalie Portman makes a terrible face when she’s getting raped by King Henry VIII. It’s a borderline juicy movie, but I did, I’m sorry to say, laugh out loud at Natalie at a very inappropriate time. She looked a tiny bit like Glenn Close there for a second in Fatal Attraction. It made it hard for me to feel sorry for her even though she was being raped by a king. Other than that, the movie was quite good.
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day – That might not actually be the correct title but this is the kind of movie that makes you feel like a horribly cynical person if, by chance, you find yourself sitting there not enjoying it. The redhead who plays the lead is Sasha Cohen’s wife. I don’t care that she calls herself Amy Adams. She’s lying. They’re the same person. Anyway, she’s really cute in the movie. So cute that I predict people will start to cheat on their boyfriends a lot more often, just for fun, and dye their hair red.
The Carpetbaggers- This is an old one from the sixties. It’s based on a Harold Robbins novel. See if you can get it on Netflix. The fight scene is hysterical. I actually made Dan get out of the shower to see George Peppard jumping into the air backwards as he got punched. You won’t regret renting it, I swear. There are some other funny scenes too, but I can’t remember any of them.
