Catch Me If You Can

weather: cloudy
outside: 3°C
mood: okay
music: Liu Fang - Melody From a Bamboo House (Pipa)
Titanic and Catch Me If You Can remind me that I keep meaning to rent What's Eating Gilbert Grape, because I need to see Arnie Grape.

Leonardo DiCaprio is a brilliant actor, no question about it... the biggest turnoff about him, for me, is the teeny-bopper fan girls with the collective, pooled IQ of a lima bean. And I feel bad because it's not even his fault. I just have this unfounded fear that if I admit to liking him or his acting, my brain will spontaneously evaporate and hiss out my ears like the steam out of a whistling tea kettle.

*runs to duct tape earmuffs to the side of my head*

It's unfortunate that he keeps getting these Pretty Boy Hero roles that show very little of what he's capable of. Frank Abagnale Jr. was a little less spoon-gagging than Jack Dawson though. Even so, CMIYC was made much lighter than I expected. That was probably done to appeal to the Leo Girlios. Which is very unfortunate, IMHO.

Like, HEY SPIELBERG, IT WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED IF YOU HELPED ENCOURAGE THE GIRLIOS TO GROW THEIR OWN BRAINS.

Ah, forget it.

And, what's this? Christopher Walken doing a normal human being? Not something psychotic with sharp teeth and bad breath? Now, that's very different... =)

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is a good movie and yes, Leo is a good actor, despite the demographic that he happens to appeal to. I’d say the same goes for Brad Pitt. I never really thought much about his talent, I was just always hearing people gush over his looks. But he’s quite talented.

Yes. I'd been refusing to see Brad Pitt movies, but I did see Snatch.

I’ve enjoyed him in Fight Club and Seven Years in Tibet though the latter I found a bit boring; good but awfully long. Ocean’s Eleven was enjoyable, too.
