Dark Tower

(no subject)

Checking the movie guide again, we noticed we had another option, and thus dashed off to watch Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. As I'm sure most people who would be reading this know, it's great (better than Adaptation, to pick on another Charlie Kaufman script). Basically, it's a chronicle of the two forces that are destroying the Earth, being TV and the CIA, and manages to cover both pretty well, through the eyes of sad individual who was probably making the whole thing up.

Most complaints about it seem to be that Julia Roberts wasn't too good, which I can sort of see, but figured they got away with it (then again, this was my first JR movie since Mary Reilly, so I can't say I'm overly familiar with her). It was also good to see Rutger Hauer in the best (if shortish) role I've seen him in since, well, before Buffy anyway.
