priscilla's garden state
Hmm. Today was a filled with mixed emotions. On one hand, I feel slightly headily happy and the other I feel empty where there's supposed to be a roller coaster ride of emotions.

Well, I watched two movies today being "Garden State" and "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert".

One of the worst things that can happen when you anticipate watching a movie too much for being good and fantastic and so original is when you actually watch it. Sad to say, but that is basically what happened to me when I finally got round to watching Garden State. It wasn't the best movie ever in my opinion nor was is the worst. It just wasn't as engaging and emotional driven as "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" was. Maybe I should lower my expectations of future anticipated movies before I watch it. That way I wouldn't have to feel so sad and disappointed that it didn't turn out as well as I thought it would. It was not as emotionally charged as Eternal because sometimes I just felt slightly disconnected from the movie characters. I don't know. Maybe the storyline just wasn't the most interesting or the best one. It was bland. Plain and simply put. The best thing of the movie was probably its smooth, gorgeous and beautiful soundtrack. The music was just practically lulling to me. I'm in the midst of trying to download most of the songs from the movie as I can or else I might just be tempted enough to get the official soundtrack from the music store. Wow. Go me. I'm supporting originally produced soundtracks. Overall, I'd give the movie a 6 out of 10.

The second movie of the day was strongly recommended by the cousin. And so, I watched it despite its off and odd title and also a story surrounding a drag queen Hugo Weaving, more well known for his portrayals of Mr. Smith from the Matrix and Elrond from The Lord of the Rings. Suffice to say, it was not a bad watch after all. It was funny, quirky and really quite raw in its portrayal of men dressing up as women and what they had to go through in a conservative society where the norm means men dressing up as men and women dressing up as women. This movie deserves a 7 out of 10 for being refreshing and different.

Next up on my list is De-Lovely and Cabaret. Both being musicals except the former is the more recent while the latter is the original musical that started musicals like Moulin Rouge and Chicago.

That's it. News relating to my real life has me not cleaning up the books still sprawled on my desk and not tidying up my closet again.
