Wiwille knows what's good for you

As much of a fan of film I can be there's not a whole lot out there that I'm really excited to see. Charlie Wilson's War was not as clever as it or anybody thinks it is, nor do I have much desire to see another monster tear up New York. A geriatric action hero is not my style either.

Still Hollywood has managed to answer my prayers and that is a period piece with Scarlett and Natalie. Yes that's Miss Johansson and Miss Portman starring in a historical drama about the Boleyn sisters. I can't think of better casting. Yes I know it's not some skin flick, which would be ideal, but it's the next best thing.

Oh and for the ladies it does have Eric Bana.

Then again it's not like a movie about the Boleyn sisters will have that much tension. You already know the ending. Still I'll watch it and so should you.

"One of the best things for a woman to hear is that she is sexy." - Scarlett Johansson

I'm always skeptical of period pieces. Especially films about European aristocracy. The characters often speak in very formal diction. I really doubt the King of England spoke perfectly in each and every sentence. Then, on the other hand, there was Kevin Costner as Robin Hood. I guess what I'm trying to say is: you can't win so don't try.

I saw the poster for this, and my second thought was, "Erik will like this."

My first thought...well, we won't get into that.

I'm a fan of Natalie Portmans and it does look like a good film, aye aye I will go and see this one.

Not a big fan of that genre of movies. Even Scarlett wouldn't make me watch - Patti tried to get me to watch Nanny Diaries, but I wouldn't.
