Where was Jeff?? And ending on a cliffhanger is just not fair.

A question I have about "The Dead Girl" — 6 years ago
How can a movie with such a great cast, including
and Marcia Gay Harden
make such a slow, oddly mundane movie? Great idea, great cast but slow, slow, slow and oddly directed.
A story about "Eating Cuban: 120 Authentic Recipes from the Streets of Havana to American Shores" — 6 years ago
I really like this cookbook-good directions/good variety of recipes (including street food) but some of the ingredients are very hard to get, like bitter orange juice.
I loved this. Extremely well done and interesting.
all how, no why. i know it was supposed to be how, but a little why would have been good.
A story about "Volver" — 6 years ago
I liked this, but pretty much had the whole story figured out from about 10 minutes in.
Also: what was the point of her squatting in the restaurant? Couldn’t she just have been a manager or something? They sort of introduced it as “she’s taking charge of her life” but then didn’t go any where with it.
A story about "Idlewild (Widescreen Edition)" — 6 years ago
One of most disappointing movies ever. Very pretty, good music (although most of the “soundtrack” is not in the movie, and a cute idea but really falls flat. Subpar acting that even clever effects can’t hide.
A story about "Infamous" — 6 years ago
I really enjoyed this. I liked Capote, but this was warmer, and more detailed in a way. You got to know Truman more and how he got to know Perry et al, where Capote seemed to fast forward a bit. Everyone seemed a bit more human in Infamous. It also had some funny and lighter moments, which broke the story up a bit. It is a shame it didn’t get more attention, it had a great, large cast and was very well shot.
A story about "Four Weddings and a Funeral" — 6 years ago
Cute movie but dreadful ending! What redeaming qualities did Carrie have? Who would want them to end up together?
A story about "Inheritance" — 6 years ago
Interesting idea, good discriptions of food but a little off. The book is divided in two parts- 1/2 by the daughter looking into something after the father died and the other 1/2 the father’s experience. There were several intances of someone talking about something you know wasn’t true/didn’t happen the way they thought because of the other half of the story. Just one example: the main character says her father would never kill an animal, when you know he killed the cat. Which is, fine in moderation, but it happened again and again and that just added a “cute” aspect that was different than the tone of the rest of book.
Also: the whole she can’t inherit because her birth wasn’t recorded in Italy (she is an American) so her cousin is the nearest relative thing was stupid. She could easily prove she was her father’s (former citizen of Italy) daughter with her birth certificate. I find it hard to beleive the Italian government would not accept this as proof.
