Status Report

I've just finished watching 'Burn After Reading'. What a steaming puddle of piss that film is. I should have learned my lesson after 'Intolerable Cruelty'.

Moving on, and things are looking up on the job front/redundancy front/me feeding my addiction to cheap (and crap) DVDs front, more of which anon because I'm not about to jinx the fucker.

It's a doler's life for me, I've been busily exploring avenues of employment and the pubs of Dublin with relish. One begets the other. I'm off to the RDS tomorrow night to see if Bruce Springsteen can hold a candle to the Funderland of my formative years, I've barely been back since.

And, well, that's all really. This really has just been one long Facebook status report. My apologies.

Burn after reading was shit.

Great potential, but just utter pish.

i liked intolerable cruelty!

but burn after reading, even if it did contain my favourite comedy line of the year - you think it's a schwinn - i ride bikes, what can i say? even after that, it was still cock. shame.

Last gig I saw in the RDS was REM supported by the Go-Betweens. 198... something. And I remember the rickety rollercoaster and the wall of sick.

No, THANK YOU! I fell asleep last night watching that film...I'm glad to know I didn't miss anything. I hate to see a good George Clooney wasted...and I don't mean drunk.

Maybe it was the curse of Brad Pitt. Never did get his appeal.

I actually liked Burn after Reading.

You people have no idea of film taste or culture.

I'm off to rent Mannequin.

Yikes. Tough crowd.

Burn After Reading was indeed gick. It was almost as if Clooney, Pitt and the Coens were having a pint and said...

"You guys doing anything tomorrow?"
"Me? no I'm free"
"Yeah me too"
"Cool, let's make a film. Maybe a comedy where Brad you have a stupid hairdo and George you get in all kinds of bother"
"Cool, you got a script"
"Eh no. Fuck it we'll wing it"
"Cool, let's do it"

You're right. But Intolerable Cruelty is actually rather good.
Objection !

Radge said...

5X, you objectionable fool. Maybe I should re-watch, Catherine Zeta Jones put me off.

NaRocRoc - Well put.

Rest of ye - Tough crowd indeed. Too drunk to individualistically, ehm, (drifts off)...

I liked it a lot more than just about anyone, seemed like a super shit Fargo... which happens to be just what I like.

Bit late to this one, but i quite liked Burn After Reading. And aren't you writing for Culch now? I thought it was in the job description that you had to gush about everything.

Radge said...

Really? Thought you were better than that.
