Bought yet more DVDs yesterday. Got Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and The Frighteners. LS is an obviously good, quality choice, but I am sure I am going to have to defend my choice of Frighteners. Here we go: I like it. It is both funny and scary, but not toooooo scary. It is directed by Peter Jackson, who is a good director. Michael J. Fox is cool, and I always really enjoyed him (and am now very sad that he has Parkinson's). And it has Jake Busey and his amazing giant Busey teeth in it. You all know how I feel about the psychotic glory of Jake Busey. Speaking of Jake Busey reminds me of all the strange movies I watched on television while ill. I watched Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet, and Alan Rickman. It was okay, but I really wanted Emma to get together with Alan, for Hugh to go be a lonely vicar, and for Kate to die a horrible, tragic, PAINFUL death. Unfortunately, that is NOT what happened. Sad Bear. I also watched part of Enemy of the State which was not exactly a bad film, but it's only real redeeming virtue was the fact that it included Jack Black, Seth Green, Barry Pepper, Scott Caan, Jason Lee, and JAKE BUSEY! I feel certain I watched other movies, but at this moment I can't seem to remember them at all. Too bad.
