loganamnosis: a mania for trying to recall forgotten words
We watched the director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven over the weekend, and I really enjoyed it. I actually enjoyed the theatrical release as well, but the director's cut is outstanding. No, Orlando is not a great actor, but he did quite well in this (and yes, he's pretty, shut up). The music and cinematography were excellent and I think I'm a little bit in love with Saladin in this. And King Baldwin? How can you not love a movie with a badass leper? I mean, really?
We also caught Tombstone for the 2,348,583,584th time on Encore. How I love that movie. No, it's not a great movie. But it's incredibly entertaining. It's one of those movies, like The Dirty Dozen and Ferris Bueller's Day Off that are like my kryptonite - if they're on, I *have* to watch them. The point of all of that, though is that we searched out the "true" history of Doc Holiday, and it's actually even more interesting and shocking than the movie version.
Wow, I got rambly today. OK, nose, meet grindstone.
