No Blogging for Old Men

So last night, Gus and I hit up the old school Coolidge Corner Movie theater in Brookline to go see No Country for Old Men. I'm usually a complete wimp and never see scary movies. The last scary movie I saw in the theater was Scream (the original) okay that's a lie, I saw both Kill Bills too. Let's just say all three of those movies made me sleep with the lights on for the next 3 months. No Country For Old Men was by far one of the best films I've seen in awhile. It was suspenseful, funny, insane, scary and caused me to yelp and shake a few times while sticking my fingers in my ears! All in good fun though. I'm probably the only one who can say this, but all three main characters had some sort of attractiveness in their own way. Javier Bardem (whos been seen canoodling with Penelope Cruz in real life) plays the absolutely psychotic crazy assassin on a cat and mouse chase- and the bowl cut made him look even more intense. Josh Brolin plays the cowboy trying to figure out if he's a hero or a bad guy.. and Tommy Lee Jones plays the old cop trying to piece this whole thing together. If you're going to see it, definitely go see it in the theater, because you feel like you're a part of the ride when seeing it on the big screen. And if you enjoy the Oscars, you might as well go see it b/c something tells me it'll be up for many a' prizes.

Warning- make sure you bring your hands with you to the movie, cos you'll probably cover your eyes a couple random times.

Such an entertaining movie experience! I think I'm going to read the book now. (yeah, i'm one of those people)

I had no idea this was going to be a scary/suspenseful movie. I'm excited to see it now!

By the way, I found you via the Randomizer a while ago. Just now saying hello! :D

I'm like you...I don't usually go see scary movies. I'm still scarred from watching "Are You Afraid of the Dark" when I was little. I still sort of believe there is a lepruchan under my bed.

Sounds like a good movie though! I may check it out!

The previews for this movie scared the crap out of me, I don't know if I can bring myself to see this in theaters....maybe on DVD, haha.

I can't wait to see it. I love me some Bardem, even if he is a bit psyochotic in this.
