Some stuff, and a myooveh
Uhh... I forgot the stuff.

I went and saw Chicago last night, and it was really good. I didn't think it would be that good, because sometimes big-name actors aren't the best singers/dancers. But Catherine Zeta-Jones is a really good singer! And Renee Zellweger has a kind of Bernadette Peters thing going on. I felt like they really could have done more with the talent they had, but obviously this is a show that was written years ago. My main problem with musicals is that they are so focussed on the big chorus numbers that they fail to allow more than one star to shine. Queen Latifah does a solo number, and it's good and all, but I think more could have been done with it. Not having any knowledge of the original musical, I don't know if I'm criticizing Bob Fosse, or Queen Latifah. I just know she can do a lot more than she did in this movie.

It's still a fun jazzy cool movie to watch, and I'll probably watch it again sometime.

I'm all : busy busy

I thought you only liked movies with animated characters or tentacles.

You're confusing my movie taste with my television taste. And I'm off tentacles.

Most animated feature films are crap. I think it's because the creators try to pace it like a live-action movie.
