I Walked That Line

Stewwife is an actor/actress/actorperson who gets to attend free screenings of nominated films. Last night I let her drag me off the couch to the theater at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood. The Leonard Goldenson Theatre is beautiful and has great acoustics. In addition to the event being free of charge, thus fitting into Stewdog's budget, there was no popcorn noises, no kids talking, no cell phone calls, no previews, and no commercials. Great way to see a film.
Oh, to the movie. I thought that I would like this film and I did. So did most critics. The two leads were superb and the music is infectious. My only criticisms are that it ran a little long and that, like Ray, to a lesser degree, it focused too much on the negative of a great celebrity's life.
Two big paws up from Stewdog.

Do tell: what was the film?

I'm assuming one of Stewdog's links was meant to be to Rotten Tomatoes, but I'm sure the movie was Walk the Line. Were you being sarcastic, Jeff, or are you bleary-eyed and fuzzy-headed from hours of Civ. 4? :)

No sarcasm intended! Besides, I haven't purchased Civ 4. I'm resisting, because I'm too busy these days, and I'd rather not emerge with a Howard-Hughes beard and crazy-dude fingernails after six sleepless weeks of simulated warfare...

Walk the line it was.
Just finished watching Cinderalla Man. Why is it that nothing makes great movies like boxing.
Russell Crowe is, as always, fantastic, as was Bart Giamannti's kid.
You can have Rene Zellwagger, wigger, or whatever. Should have been hit by a truck after Jerry McGwire. KM's sister is right. She always looks like she just smelled dog poop.

I've never actually played one of those Civilization games. It sounds like something I'd want to keep my husband from ever discovering!
