I am drawing a complete blank. Which makes me chuckle a little. (It’s a line from Grosse Point Blank, a movie I love.) But it doesn’t really give me anything to write about. Unless I write about John Cusack movies. Most of which I love. I wasn’t crazy about High Fidelity, though. I liked the supporting characters, but Cusack’s character bugged me. The book didn’t do much for me, either. John really likes both. I think he prefers the book (safe guess). It’s by Nick Hornby, who wrote About A Boy (I’ve seen the movie – painful to watch (that poor kid), but good – but I haven’t read the book). Recently, though, John Cusack has done some not-so-good movies. Must Love Dogs was pretty bad, and I tried pretty hard to like it (I like Diane Lane, and Captain Von Trapp was in it!). Martian Child wasn’t bad, but it was a transparent tearjerker. I’m not saying I didn’t like it. 🙂 I’m just saying it wasn’t a great movie. So maybe it was an exaggeration to say that I love most John Cusack movies. I’ll rephrase to say that I will watch and enjoy almost any movie that he is in. And I love that Joan Cusack is usually cast with him. I really like watching the two of them together. Do I really need to mention Say Anything? Pushing Tin, Being John Malkovich, Serendipity…I’m not going to list all of his movies. And I haven’t seen them all. Maybe I should make that a priority. And I want to see Identity again. That’s one that should reveal more during the second viewing.
In other news, Twilight is pretty entertaining. I’m almost halfway done with it, and I will almost certainly want to finish the series. At the moment, though, i don’t see this as being something I’ll want/need to reread.
