Finally got to see the "Athens, GA: Inside Out" documentary last night. Some good performances from the Flat Duo Jets and Pylon. Loved the interviews with the locals and Rev. Howard Finster.

I've seen it twice before, but I'm during an in-depth analysis of Jack Nicholson's OCD in this movie. I'm only ten minutes in and I already have over a page of notes on it.
I'm so glad I'm able to do this movie, it really is a "laugh until you cry, cry until you laugh" kind of flick. Nicholson's character is the best/worst person I've ever seen.

Might have been better without Keira Knightley's character or maybe based solely on her character. I thought it turned out too cluttered.

Get Him to the Greek (US 2010) is a spinoff from the completely forgettable Forgetting Sarah Marshall. An American record company employee, played by the wearisome Jonah Hill, is sent to the UK to recall rockstar Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) for a comeback show at The Greek Theater. Brand and Sean Coombs give reasonable performances as music industry stereotypes, while a slapstick scene in a hotel suite is moderately amusing. But, the combination of Brand's eccentric ramblings with Hollywood sentiment just does not work. The film is certainly not to my taste and I thought it was awful.

This is all I took away from that film. I want a good Cronenberg film dammit. His last two were very mediocre.

Or without the gross historical inaccuracies. I don't mind some dramatic elaboration, but geez...

Has Keira Knightley ever done anything worthwhile? Everything about her makes me wanna hurl. She's not even particularly attractive. She looks like what Natalie Portman would look like with Kristen Stewart's expression.

I think she was in Bend it Like Beckham, which is a good low budget film about an Asian girl who is a talented footballer, but her family disapprove. The simplest ideas are the best.

But did she not suck in it?

I can't remember, so she must've been adequate.
