What have you watched for me lately?

hallo! Just got my blockbuster online subscription back on. I watched Persepolis the other day and it lived up to the hype, I liked it, nothing over the top or extraordinary, just enjoyable. Was a good way to express the story of a girl growing up in Iran after the fundamentalists took over. For those that read, there is a graphic novel of it(just found out there was one today, thanks to my best friend). Speaking of graphic novels, why did I just find out that its pretty much any comic book with a storyline, hisss. I thought graphic novels were comic books +superheroes+mega mucho violence. For those that grew up in nigeria, so if Papa Ajasco is written into one lengthy story it's a graphic novel?? madness, i tell ya.

I am about to watch 4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days, a romanian story about abortion i think. The last abortion movie I watched was Vera Drake and even though it was british, surprise-surprise, I liked it. We'll see how this goes.

I'll start with TT. I don't really know what I expected but not until recently did the trailers start making me laugh plus it has RJD in it. It wasn't a waste of $5 (I caught the matinee, lol). I laughed so hard sometimes, loudly too but it did have some moments where it lulled. May I just declare 2008 the year of RJD (yeah yeah i know it's just 2 movies but they were outstanding movies), he was just really the standout of the movie as "the dude playing the dude disguised as another dude!", lol. I say he deserves a nom for this role, comedy or not! ( the academy seems to have it out for comedies). That Ben Stiller sef, dude is just an u…
