About a month ago I watched “Adaptation” based on its’ awards and the description on the back of the box. “Director Spike Jonze delivers a stunningly original comedy. . .” I enjoyed the movie, but I would NEVER describe it as a comedy. I question the choice of ending but the characters were interesting. This isn’t the first time I’ve reacted differently to a movie that the rest of America adored. “Cold Mountain” was hugely popular but it just made me cry. I guess there’s good reason why I’m never invited to movie screenings.

Adaptation. left me wanting something also. It wasn’t that it was bad, but I felt like the first half of the movie and the second half of the movie were different movies. And I kept waiting for the final scene to pan down from the screen and we’d be in a movie premiere.
I’ve not seen either film referenced here….
And the reason you and I aren’t invited to movie screenings is we have taste. And also I blather on too long to be a really good sound byte…LOL
Never saw either movie – guess I’m outta touch lol.
I’ve been to a movie screening – the movie was sooooo bad I can’t even remember the name but what the hell it was a night out and it was free.
Yes! I kept waiting for Meryl Streep to be a man like in the brother’s plot or the whole thing to be a movie. The ending felt like it had a new director.
