Accepted / The Libertine / Casanova

"A census taker once tried to test me, I ate his liver with fava beans and a nice chianti." -Hannibal Lecter, Silence of the Lambs*

I saw the movie "Accepted" Saturnsday. It was brilliant. One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. It was not only smart, but it was very funny. Justin Long (Dodgeball: An Underdog's Story) was awesome as the lead actor. He was the main reason I wanted to watch it in the first place. And I was not disappointed.

4 out of 5 College Credits for this one.

"The Libertine," starring Johnny Depp... at first glance, it is a movie you'd think that it was a movie strictly about sex... but honestly, there isn't much sex at all... just the most profound scenes. Unfortunately it is very slow moving. The poetry is EXCEPTIONAL... and coming from me that is a compliment. It makes me want to explore the poetry of Lord John of Rochester.

The poetry however is not enough to save this movie from itself, and I actually fell asleep during the last twenty minutes.

See it if you can get it for a dollar or less, or unless you REALLY like poetry.

Casanova was hilarious. Not too much in the smart category. Was very good though. I was definitely entertained. I wasn't entirely convinced of Heath Ledger being Casanova, but he pulled it off fair enough I suppose.

It was a period comedy/action/drama with some high points.

I hope you enjoyed the movie reviews.
