The last two movies that have come from our Blockbuster account have conclusively proved that we would be better off ignoring the well-meaning movie recommendations of our friends.
The first of the two was “Lady In The Water”, which was dreadful, inexplicable, and tedious. But then, last night, we saw “Sideways”, which was a trainwreck almost from the first. We eventually turned it off when it degenerated into pornography. The conversations about wine were interesting, but incongruous in a story that was almost entirely about fornication and adultery.
So, we’ve gone through our Blockbuster list again, and dropped all the movies from it that folks have recommended, that we haven’t ourselves seen previews. There’s only so much time in life, and it’s a shame to waste it watching trash.
