Don’t wait for me to comment on Eat Pray Love

Don’t wait for me to comment on Eat Pray Love because I absolutely no interest in seeing it.  I am just not in the target audience for this film:  I haven’t read the book, I am not a woman and I don’t care for Julia Roberts.

I don’t hesitate to watch a movie in a genre that I generally don’t like if it seems like one of the year’s best or really good for the genre:  Inception (summer blockbuster), Zombieland (zombies), The Dark Knight and Iron Man (comic book). District 9 (sci fi) and (500) Days of Summer and Away We Go (rom com).

In this case, I have seen the trailer and read the reviews of Eat Pray Love.  Yesterday it had a Metacritic score of 50.  My guess is that the millions of people who enjoyed the book will also enjoy the movie.  God bless.

Speaking of chick flicks, Metacritic has a great new list up:  20 Worst Chick Flicks Since 1990.  (Amazingly, Kate Hudson stars only in one of these 20.)  I’ve already included it on my Other People’s Great Movie Lists.

    You know my feelings…there are “Chick Flix” and “Dick Flix”…the latter requiring either lots of blood and guts and a chase of some kind or so much bathroom and dick humor to make one nauseous. You can tell my preference. While I don’t like the sappy, mindless “Chick Flixs” I do think sometimes really good films get thrown in that category because men don’t want to get emotional or think too much.
