Yesterday was interesting.
Finished a bunch more Rose icons, then saw The Brothers Grimm.

Terry Gilliam rocks.
Monica Bellucci is hot as fuck.
And Matt Damon and Heath Ledger rock.

I'll put the rest under the cut cause of OMGSpoilers!!!

I thought it was a damn good movie. I don’t know why people are saying it was so horrible. I mean, there were bits and pieces that didn’t seem to fit in properly, but it was such a minor thing.

There were a bunch of familiar actors in the movie.
I thought it was damned funny that a Welshman was cast as a French general. His accent kinda meshed at certain parts, but he wasn’t that bad. And Jonathan Pryce’s character has hit an all time low. In PotC, he was incompetent, but decent. In Very Annie Mary, he was a fuckwad, very overbearing, and worthless. Now he’s French.
Mackenzie Crook rocked as usual. It’s too bad he didn’t have a lot of screen time. He’s just great.
I can totally see why they cast Monica Bellucci as the “fairest of them all” queen. She is gorgeous, and she just looks right in the period outfits.

The movie was a lot funnier than I thought it would be, but I guess Gilliam had his hand in that. The random bits that were just randomly hilarious were great. Like Matt Damon with Grandmother Toad. And Jonathan Pryce with his romantic soldier’s dinner by firelight.
It was pretty damn funny when, after kissing Angelika awake with a “kiss of true love”, the French guy tries to get Heath ledger to kiss Matt Damon.
It seriously looked like Heath was going to kiss Matt too.
The French guy looked like he wanted to kiss Matt too judging how he was holding onto Matt after he fell out of the tower.
The opportunities for French jokes in this movie are endless, so I won’t bother going into that.

I thought it was great. Thinking of buying it when it comes out on DVD.
Now waiting for Brokeback Mountain.
