14 May 2007, terribly early in the morning

I watched the Pursuit of Happiness without any sound on the plane ride back to Canada, having decided it wasn’t worth splurging the $2 for headphones. Dreamgirls was up next, and I wanted to see it, so I sucked it up and bought a pair of uncomfortable crap earbuds. I regretted not getting them earlier, since I imagine the Pursuit of Happiness would be even better with sound. Anyway: Dreamgirls was a very enjoyable film. It’s a musical about the rise and not-quite fall of Motown-esque sort of music studio. The film features several stars, including the delectable BeyoncĂ© (meow). Eddie Murphey plays a James Brown sort of character, and is by far the best act in the movie. (The best scene in the movie has to be Murphey singing his “Jimmy Got Soul” number near the end of the film.) As I said, I enjoyed watching the film. It’s nothing brilliant, but quite fun to watch.

  1. The same two movies played on my way here and I enjoyed The Pursuit of Happiness a lot more. I guess I’m just not just into musicals so much.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
