I have been reading reviews of three movies that I have been really looking forward to seeing. All three movies are getting crap reviews.
"Match Point" has been referred to as final proof that Woody has "gone to seed"
"Triston and Isolde" has been likened to something the WB would make.
And "Memoirs of a Geisha" only got nominated for best score not even best costumes!

Is it too much for me to ask that someone make a movie about unrequited love that is both interesting and visually beautiful but not cheesy? Seriously? Is it that all of the good stuff has been done so well that it can't be done again, or have we just become lazy?


I'm still going to see all of them, but now I am not looking forward to it as much as I was.

Brokeback Mountain, King Kong... I guess the best love stories this year just aren't between a man and a woman. That's so 20th century anyway, right? ;)
