So here's why I love the Daily Show:
Semi-boring interview with Gwenyth Paltrow, as she totally sucks. Then John asks her, as he has a newborn son and she has a newborn daughter, "so I was thinking, maybe my son could" [here I think: oh, he's going to ask for Nathan to date Apple. How twee] "bang your daughter."
OH MY FUCKING GOD. I was dying. Gwenyth looked shocked and man...I was laughing so freakin' hard. That was awesome.
I'm declaring it International Recommend-A-Movie Day. This means everyone should go to their LJ right now and tell their friends to watch a really good movie which most of them probably have not seen. And then tell more people to do it. Hopefully, we'll all have lots and lots of recommendations by the end of the day.
Grosse Point Blank
John Cusack's finest role in the 90's. He plays a hired killer who's lost the taste for the game and decides to go to his high school reunion. Only problem is that he freaked out and joined the army on his prom night, ditching his girlfriend (Minnie Driver, and she's fantastic in this, y'all) and pretty much disappearing without a trace. Plus Jeremy Piven is in this. The Piven is awesome.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Clueless Gary Oldman! Tim Roth! Riffing on Hamlet! Play-withing-a-play-within-a-play. Within a play "I've frequently not been on boats." "You had me confused." "We were send for." Dammit, just see it. Gary Oldman in bath! What else can I say to get you to see this movie?
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
I really enjoy this, even though it's totally not true. It's a neat idea and George Clooney did a pretty good job directing this in my unwashed masses opinion. Plus Sam Rockwell has a great ass. And he shows it a lot.
Such a fucking awesome movie. "You're terrible, Muriel." Toni Collete rules. It's not a happy movie, in fact it deals with some very dark stuff and there's a lot of angst and heck, there are some uncomfortable scenes, but overall, it's a wonderful movie.
Oh wow. So fucked up. So horrifying. So damn pretty. This is Kate Winslet's first movie ever, and my god, she's fabulous. Peter Jackson did a fantastic job with this movie, I was really impressed.
