10 years of Flick Filosopher: loaded with MsG

Like oh my god, I totally adore exotic and thinky movies. From my review of Memoirs of a Geisha:

[W]hat’s important is that Memoirs of a Geisha is a great movie and makes you understand history without being like a class in school — it’s Hollywood history, which is the best kind! And the movie is very sleek and shiny, like a magazine (magazines are okay to read because they’re mostly pictures anyway!). You know how magazines make people and clothes and the whole world look more beautiful than they really are, and how magazines have all the right and perfect and easy answers even for really hard questions? (I bet Cosmo would have the right answer for Sayuri if she asked them about who she should sell her virginity to, like she does in the movie!) Well, Memoirs of a Geisha is like that. This movie totally deserves, like, Oscars and stuff.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I don’t know which was worse, the book or the movie. All right, all right, the book was actually worse. MAJ, I double dare you to read it. I double DOG dare you.

    No? The book is worse? I might actually have to have a look at it…
