Bondage

19/01/03:

I saw “Two Weeks Notice”. It was a really good romantic comedy. I am currently incapable of writing more on it because I am listening to “Mistadobalina” by Del Tha Funky Homosapien and that is currently using up the part of my brain that writes interesting movie reviews.

But now I’m not listening to ooh ooh Mista Dobolina, so I can write some stuff about that film.

The soundtrack had two songs in common with “Catch Me If You Can”. Namely, “Come fly with me” and “The look of love”. In both films, the first song was used to underscore flying in an aircraft and the second song was used in a seduction scene. However, “Two Weeks Notice” made up for such unoriginality by using “Taking care of business” during the scene where, after eating a bad hotdog, Sandra Bullock’s character finds herself stuck in traffic, really, really needed to go to the toilet.

I was going to bitch about the use of “London Calling” in “Die Another Day”. When I first saw it I thought it seemed like someone had been like “it says “London calling” a lot. Let’s use that in the first big scene set in London! OMG! That’s be so kewl!!!”. But given what happens later in the film, to have a song with lyrics like “The ice age is coming, the sun’s zooming in,” is quite clever.

I’ve formulated a final opinion on “Die Another Day”. I like how it’s a classic Bond movie in that it’s extravagant and ridiculous. Not like the Bond movies of the ’90s where it seemed to want to be very sensible, “Die Another Day” was full of silly crap.

By the way, my two favourite Bond films are “Live And Let Die” (Bond blacksploitation, afros, voodoo, New Orleans) and “A View To A Kill” (Grace Jones, Christopher Walken, Duran Duran).
