Consumables #17

This week my brain ate:


Live Nude Girls Unite!
Documentary about workers at The Lusty Lady in San Francisco who organized and became the first unionized sex business.

Robin Hood
Lately, my brain has totally been on complete overload with work and outside-work nuttiness. Because of this, I was in the perfect mindset to see this movie. As a matter of fact, I think the real title of the movie should have been Robin Hood: Calgone Taketh Me Away and Hither! Because it really does not demand a goddamn thing out of you when you watch it. It is exactly and precisely everything you expect it to be and nothing more or less. It's Russell Crowe being all Gladiator-y with bows and arrows and Cate Blanchette being all ethereal-yet-feisty and the fight scenes come on just when you know they will and the story goes just where you want it to. Nothing new in the slightest. Ahhh. My overtired brain really needed that.

Planet B-Boy
Doc about The Battle of the Year, an international breakdancing competition. This ain't no Boogaloo, peoples.

500 Days of Summer
I found this much more melancholy than I expected. Must be my mood right now.

That's all I got. Let me just express my week thusly.


Adieu, my pretties.

I'm with you on 500 Days of Summer. I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't that. We're a bit spoiled with the happy endings. Even after all that though, it's on my list of ones to watch again.
