Monday Movie Meme


This week's movie topic is all about Walking Out...

Meaning movies I either walked out of, or wished I had. I've listed them by how violently the mere mention of the title makes me shudder.

The Piano. Harvey Keitel naked. Naked with tattoos on his face that look like they were drawn with a Bic Ballpoint. Holly Hunter mute for no rational reason, heaping so much responsibility on her daughter that the poor little girl was in nearly every scene (but she did get an Oscar for her pains).

The Legend of Bagger Vance. Who knew a movie with Will Smith and Matt Damon could be a snooze? I didn't hate this movie. I was just desperately disappointed and so, sooooo bored.

The Matrix. Too convoluted to follow, too noisy to sleep through.

  2. I'm so glad I am not the only one who feels the way I do about Bagger V or the Matrix.

  4. I loved The Piano (different strokes and whatnot) - did not watch Bagger Vance (the husband did and does almost every time it's on TV) and saw the Matrix but I don't understand any of those kinds of things. They mess with my bitty head.

    The only movie I've walked out on was "Nobody's Fool" but that was probably because the idiot boyfriend and I were on the verge of breaking up and I was hating on him. So, who can say?

  5. I actually love The Piano! (except the finger chopping scene) and then I have to turn my head.

    The Piano is one of the few movies my mother and I disagree on. She loves it. I hate it. I suspect she just liked seeing Harvey Keitel naked. Otherwise, it was stupid and not at all believable

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
