Movie Review ... NO ETEP :((

WEDNESDAY MAY 04 2005 7:16 PM

So I didn't get into USM for Teaching School :((

I am going to try to apply to get conditional certification jobs anyway.

So I have seen a few movies on DVD and two very good ones in the theatre.

I saw Comedian on DVD ... I am taking a stand-up class right now (Performance on May 14th at Comedy Connection -- Portland, Maine at 4 pm) .. It was nice to see Jerry Seinfeld humbled on stage trying out new material ... Very good ***1/4

I also saw Metallica-Some Kind of Monster ... It was good but took a while for me to get through on Netflix. Was good to watch while you were checking the internet .... .***

I really really liked the two movies I saw in the theatre today.

Check out Kung Fu Hustle before it leaves the theatre ... the movie is an absolute riot with some amazing characters... I may have liked Shaolin Soccer better but this was quite good ****

I also saw Fever Pitch. I was a big fan of Nick Hornby's fan biography on rooting for Arsenal in good times and bad... I really, really was surprised I liked this movie as much as I did. It was a great romantic comedy, and showed some of the insanities of Red Sox Nation. Well done by the Farrelly Brothers ****1/4

I have also seen Sin City recently. This was an absolute blast. Mickey Rourke gave the best performance of his is decades and was the real stand-out. This movie is basically 3 graphic novels put together on the screen. A real knockout and very likely to be in my top 10 of the year ****1/2

Wish me luck on the summer job search and give me good vibes for the stand-up show and applying to jobs to teach in Maine and environs.
