Last week I went to Casanova. The best thing I can say about -that- is that it was free. I expected it to be fluff, but I expected it to be better fluff. I know Hallstrom is going steadily downhill as a director, but he did direct one of my favorite films ever, My Life As A Dog. And he did well by The Cider House Rules as well. So. I don’t know what’s happening.
It still was better than the worst movie ever. Also, is it just me or is Sienna Miller just about the most forgettable person ever? I’ve seen her in this and Layer Cake (which I loved) and for the life of me I cannot remember what she looks like. This is Not Good.

Yeah, I wish Casanova had been better. I thought the ending was cute & beautifully shot, & there were funny parts, but that’s about it.
Now see, I really want to hear you go off on the worst movie ever (which I have not yet seen, actually). Or have you done that already and I missed it?
Oh my goodness! It is just so bad! Before that, the worst movie ever was Love, Actually, but at least that I would be willing to see again if I needed something to knit through. (LA had too large of an ensemble, and so I found myself caring about people only because they were played by actors I enjoyed, not because I’d been given any reason within the film.)
Bridget Jones 2 is painful and contrived and ugh. Just awful. The only redeeming feature to it is that it has another fight between Colin Firth & Hugh Grant. I love those fights, because they look like -real- fights between wimpy guys, where most of their energy goes to protecting themselves. Plus it serves to support my belief that they’re much more interested in each other than they are in Bridget 😉
At the end I just kept thinking “Dread Pirate Casanova” and giggling.
I really want to see the version with David Tennant.
Won’t bother to see Casanova in the theater, then. Not that I was really planning on doing that, but now I really won’t.
Also? This is the worst movie ever. 😉
