Josie and the Pussycats (2001)
excruciating to watch.
i love alam cumming. i love parker posey. i love rosario dawson. i love gabriel mann. i love spoofs of boy groups. i love all-girl bands.
i really wanted to love this movie. i had heard only bad things about it, but since "the mummy returns" was sold out, and i was still in the mood for mindless fun, i got a ticket to see "josie and the pussycats." it started off great, and i enjoyed dujour, the spoof of boy groups. i enjoyed seeing the all too real frustration of starting out as a band and playing horrible shows that no one goes to.
and then after that, when the "plot" decided to kick in -- it was horrible. i laughed at things, but i can't remember any of them. towards the end i was just waiting for the movie to end, and it took its sweet time.
i realize that the product placements were there for a reason, to point out how ubiquitous they are, and how we're used to them. but this was so in your face your couldn't help but become nauseated. so yes, friendship before fame. right. good point.
i just wish for tara reid to stop acting and for rachel leigh cook to *start* acting, cos it seems that she keeps playing the same incredibly bland and supposedly smart characters.
two stars out of ten.
Leprechaun in the Hood (2000)
so bad it's... still really bad.
a leprechaun in the hood. a rapper named postmaster p. a baseball bat to the afro. is it destined to become a cult classic? will there be midnight showings? one can only hope. i never thought i'd see a black drag queen have sex with a leprechaun. for that reason alone you should have that movie on your vcr or dvd player RIGHT NOW.
