Friday night in

I brought a few movies home from work tonight, two of which we watched this evening.

First was Aeon Flux, in which Charlize Theron wore skimpy awesomewear to sleep. It reminded me of Logan’s Run, without the Run. Or Logan. Or spots and 30 and such. Oh yeah and it had Martin Csoskas in it, who was Celeborn in Return of the King.

Second was Danny Deckchair, an Australian film based on a guy who attached a bunch of balloons to a lawn chair and floated away. In the movie, the guy finds a new life and new love and yay. In real life, the guy (Lawnchair Larry) just had his fifteen minutes of fame, and he eventually killed himself years later. The aussie film is much cheerier and amusing. Plus it had Miranda Otto (Eowyn in the Two Towers and ROTK) in it as the love interest, and she’s hot.

I guess tonight I’m all about the hot women and the Lord of the Rings Tie-ins. hmm. Perhaps while cleaning tomorrow I will watch some Lord of the Rings. I only have I and II, though, sadly. I’ll need to pick up the extended III when I have a chance.

The other movies I have here from work at Amadeus (I’ve been trying to watch this one for about four years now, and failing at it because I never get around to putting it in the machine,) Heavenly Creatures, and So I Married an Axe Murderer (which I got because Adam hasn’t seen it at all and it’s been a long time since I’ve seen it myself.) I’ll let you know about hot woman and Lord of the Rings Status on those later.

    Amadeus is pretty good… it was actually one of my favourite movies when I was a teenager (and just discovering classical music).
