Went to see The Holiday today. It was cute, nothing special, fair to middlin'. Jude Law was exceedingly handsome, Cameron Diaz was exceedingly annoying, and poor Kate Winslet (my lesbian wife) got stuck with Jack Black as a love interest and the short end of the story arch. So unfair. I rate it 3/5.
I finished watching Gangs of New York tonight after having it out from Netflix since October. Talk about dragging my feet. In the end it was very good, and I got a nice history lesson from the Discovery Channel documentary on the DVD extras about the gang wars the movie was based on. My Irish heritage is feeling enriched. And though I still found Cameron Diaz exceedingly annoying in this movie as well, Daniel Day Lewis and Leonardo DiCaprio were enough to garner 4/5 stars from moi.
