Garbage, garbage, garbage

We rented this movie via our nearby MacDonalds' rental kiosk. All of 99c. Sad to say, it was a waste of the money - and energy and time to rent it.

Besides the extreme (but typical) necessary suspension of belief that I was forced into at every turn, it was full of completely unnecessary crude humor... that wasn't even funny.

Please skip "Because I Said So". We almost did. We watched about the first twenty minutes and ejected the DVD. (And you ask, "Why did it take that long for you to reject it?" We were hopeful that it would get better, but that never happened.)

We love redbox but find so few contemporary movies worth viewing. That's why I love netflix. You can pick up any number of classics - especially Alfred Hitchcock, my favorite. Also, when you're a member with Netflix you get a certain number of hours a month to view instantly on you, sorry, PC (not MAC compatible). This weekend I watched Sense and Sensibility (Jane Austen)and North and South (Elizabeth Gaskell). Ahh, brilliant chick flicks!

I rent from amazon.co.uk (they must do it in the US as well). It's brilliant. Just £3.99 a month for two films and you get to chose from pretty much any film they have, and you don't even pay postage. I also use rottentomatoes.com to find out what critics and the general public think of a film (they gave 'Because I Said So' 5% (critics) and 28% (general public)).

Skip astronaut farmer as well... not even for $1.

Although, highly recommend the Bourne Supremecy in theatres now. Rent the first two, if you've not seen them. Great escape films.
