      I watched “Vicky Christina Barcelona” the other day and was sooo disappointed!  I don’t understand what the big deal was surrounding this movie!  Javier Bardem was delicious eye candy, check!  Penelope Cruz his real-life girlfriend was fabulous!  She just can’t be ugly!  But, then they had to go and add ScarJo to the mix and mess it all up!frown  And, therein lies the problemo!   Could she have BEEN less dead?!!!

      Then, I watched “AUSTRALIA,”  and, THAT was perfect!!!!!!!!!

        • I waited and waited for it to come out on Netflix, and was so mad that I’d been so worked up over it. I really didn’t like that movie.

          I hated that there was no story arc, in that the characters were unchanged from the beginning of the film to the end. There was no character evolution, and I hate that.

          I think, ultimately, that I’m just not a fan of Woody Allen’s style.

        • Heather, I’m not real big on Woody Allen either. Just something about his work doesn’t woo me.
          I almost got Austrailia on OnDemand yesterday, but got Changling instead. It was really good!

        • The ONLY Woody Allen flick I ever liked was “Sleeper” way back in the early 70’s????  So stupid it was hilarious.

        • Other then VCB and Match Point (another ScarJo vehicle, although I’m very fond of her), I’m not sure I’ve even seen any other Woody Allen films. His personality as seen through other things has never appealed to me. The same goes for a lot of his subject matter.

          My husband reminded me this morning that I did not wait for Vicky Cristina Barcelona to be available on Netflix, but actually bought it as soon as it came out. Ugh.

          Oh well, I always say that I can still learn something (as far as my own screenwriting pursuits go) from movies I don’t like. In this case, what NOT to do.

        • Ever since he left Mia Farrow for their 17 year old nanny I lost ALL respect for him.  Ok, maybe she was 18.........

        • I actually loved this movie.  It kinda reminded me of Last Tango in Paris.  It was so about the different ways women show love,  and how these 3 women loved the same man.  Very interesting premise.  The guy was so European.  I’m not sure women in the States can relate to the passiveness of the European man.  I laughed through the whole thing.
