I was literally forced to watch it last night by my cousin. We have this deal where I introduce her to a great new film, preferably a foreign or indie film, and she forces me to watch what I assume will be garbage.
Burlesque on the other hand was far from garbage. I was reminded last night that Christina Aguilera is an AMAZING singer and not a bad actress. Also that bartender guy from Twilight is super salty! Cher was really good. She’s funny. Stanley Tucci can never do wrong. It kinda felt like watching The Devil Wears Prada when taking in the chemistry between Tucci and Cher. What else….. OH Mc Steamy was, Mc Steamy. He’s like a genuinely rugged good looking chap. Also at some point in my diminishing youth, I’d like to dress up like Dita Von Teese and learn a little Burlesque. That shit looks hot! :)
Anywho, as part of the deal my cousin and I are watching Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind tonight. I cant wait! I love every single second of that film. It’s beautiful, it heart breaking, it’s funny. Joel and Clem (Jim and Kate for you weirdos that haven’t seen this magical musing) keep me hopeful about love. I always feel really happy after watching it. If you haven’t seen either Burlesque or Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, do your self a favor and DO IT! They are both worth your 90-120 min.
If you don’t like them, sue me!
