Ever since watching this movie, I can't stop thinking about it. It was intriging and mostly believable until the very end where it went a little overboard. Ok, it was flirting with coocoo up until that point, but seriously, it went into lala land. For a totally weird adventure, one you've never experienced before, take a look at this movie. You'll never forget it.</p> Mon, 29 Oct 2007 12:44:48 -0700 http://heathandstef.com/forums/message/886 /forums/message/886 RE: Stranger Than Fiction (2006) - annie loo <p>I have been walking by this movie at Blockbuster.....wondering...NOW I will rent it...Hope I like it....</p> Fri, 15 Jun 2007 08:38:52 -0700 http://heathandstef.com/forums/message/699 /forums/message/699 Stranger Than Fiction (2006) - Stef <p>Perhaps it’s the quirky side of me that fell head-over-heels in love with this movie. Those who know me well know that most sides of me are quirky… but I digress. I was immediately enthralled by the unique story and the fascinating way in which it was told. Its fantastically twisted reality reminded me of “Being John Malkovich” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, both of which I whole-heartedly loved. Not only was reality explored in a totally backwards way (love it!), but the characters were also thoroughly enchanting. I’m beginning to see a pattern here – I was completely captivated with this movie in the exact way I was with the French film “Amelie”. Quirky, misunderstood, lovable and lonely characters are welcome! </p> <p>The premise is not entirely new, but the light-hearted, easy warmth of it was much more enjoyable than the sad and dark plot of “The Truman Show”, where everyone lied to poor Truman throughout his entire life (my ultimate fear, by the way). What had the greatest emotional impact for me was the exploration of existentialism and what makes life worth living. While it was warm and touching, it was also intelligent. Coming in second for me was the amazing scene where Will Ferrell sings and plays the guitar. This is one of the main reasons I got my brother a guitar for his birthday. If he can do this, girls will love him! <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXAKEeYmUus&amp;mode=related&amp;search=">Check this out!</a></p> <p>Will Ferrell was flawless and my respect for him has just doubled – how does he go from Ricky Bobby, the NASCAR star, to Harold Crick, a sad and lonely IRS agent? Maggie Gyllenhaal was captivating, prompting me to look for her on my next trip to Netflix.com. Although I didn’t hear much about it when it came out, this movie was a sweet, surprising treasure that I will watch over and over. </p> Wed, 09 May 2007 13:47:42 -0700 http://heathandstef.com/forums/message/646 /forums/message/646 RE: Ghost Rider (2007) - Heath <p>I am really starting to enjoy all the comic book movies now coming out thanks to the advances in computer generated special effects. Spider Man and X-Men have to be my favorites. However, Ghost Rider was never a comic book I followed. And I have to agree with you – Nicolas Cage just doesn’t seem to fit the part. </p> Sun, 11 Mar 2007 04:21:48 -0700 http://heathandstef.com/forums/message/596 /forums/message/596 Ghost Rider (2007) - Stef <p>The newest of the comic book movies stars Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes. I have always been a huge Nicolas Cage fan. He's one of those guys that I find inexplicably sexy. (Don't ask me why, it's inexplicable!) Anyway, I'm always a sucker for movies full of special effects, so it can't be all bad, right?</p> <p>Well...</p> <p>By far, my biggest complaints are about the whole idea of a Nicolas Cage character and an Eva Mendes character being in love. Why those two? It is completely unbelievable. He's obviously much older than her (even though their characters were in school at the same time) and they have zero chemistry. And even though, as I said, I find myself drawn to him, I don't know how much longer I can find him believable as the sexy woman-swooner he's often cast as. The funniest part of this movie is the BIZARRE shot of his way too sculpted abs. So, how can you have pencil-thin legs and an 8 pack from hell that would make Marky Mark in his hay day jealous?</p> <p>Ok, it's not all bad. There are some fairly cool computer-generated special effects. I wasn't impressed by the whole "skull on fire" thing and I wasn't familiar with the comic book before we went, so I could hardly stop from giggling each time he flung his "on-fire" chain around. But, there is a pretty cool scene where the devil-kid & his crew suck the life out of a bar-full of people. The earth, wind, and water guys were cool but extremely lame bad guys. "Hows about I turn into a puddle and grab his foot?! Ah ha ha!" </p> Tue, 06 Mar 2007 15:51:10 -0800 http://heathandstef.com/forums/message/586 /forums/message/586 RE: Thanks for sharing our special day! - Sherrie Holloway <p>Your beautiful wedding was a once in a lifetime experience.
