  • OT: Lemony Snicket

    I took DS14 and DD12 to see Lemony Snicket today. They finished their school
    year yesterday, their reports were gratifying to read and they definitely
    deserved a treat to start off their summer holiday. Both enjoyed the film
    very much.

    I thought it was well acted by both the adults and children, beautifully
    (though darkly) and imaginatively crafted and quite good but I'm not really
    into story lines where the hook is a "series of unfortunate events"! A nice
    surprise was that it is narrated by Jude Law, although you don't actually
    get to *see* him. <sob>

    Six months ago you never heard of Lemony Snicket now he is "all the
    rage". Piffle.

    Although your sentiments about Jude Law agree with you.

    Be careful what you wish for....

      LOL

      I didn't even realise there was a movie until a couple of weeks ago and went
      without knowing who any of the actors are. The boy looked familiar and I
      think he was in "Stepmom". (Possibly a movie you've managed to avoid
      seeing!) My son started reading the books at least three years ago, though,
      and I've read the first two or three and been happy to stop there.

      I wonder if anyone's doing a screen version of the "Artemis Fowl" books?
      Although your sentiments about Jude Law agree with you.
      It's nice to know we can find common ground sometimes, Em!

      Btw, did you like him in "Cold Mountain"? So far I seem to be the only
      person I know who very much enjoyed that movie ...

        I don't get this one. I understand, from other's, that he is considered
        attractive. I just don't see it, *at all*. If I were to rate him on a scale
        of one to ten, with ten being the highest, I'd rate him a four. He just
        doesn't do a *thing* for me.

          my D12 and her friends have been reading the series for several years.
          The UF series has been all the rage for quite a bit longer than six
          months.

            We're seeing it this weekend. It's playing at the $3.00 theater up the road.
            A local family restored a 1920's theater and shows first run films for 3
            bucks!

              I'll probably be taking my littles (DS9 and DDalmost7) to this one this
              weekend. The movie looks good, but....dang, those books are overpriced! I'm
              glad DS9 didn't jump on them after we finished up all the Harry Potters
              available.

                I really liked Cold Mountain, but mostly for Renee Zellweiger. I honestly
                believe it's possible that's the only movie I've seen Jude Law in so far,
                and I really don't remember much about his performance one way or another.
                He's definitely not "my type," though.

                  What "you" do you mean? Maybe _you_ never heard of Lemony Snicket six
                  months ago. Most people with kids have known about him for years.

                    Hmm. My wife has a thing for Jude Law too. Furthermore he ssems to
                    be in virtually every movie released in the last few months (Alfie,
                    Closer, Sky Captain..., Unfortunate Events. ...)

                    A busy guy.


                    My kids love the books which have a good sense of humor, though a dark
                    one. I'm sure we'll end up going to the movie...

                      Maybe YOU had never heard of Lemony Snicket but the words have
                      frequently been heard in this house for a few years now. A very
                      popular series of books.

                        for Butler.

                          The first time I remember seeing Jude Law was in the movie 'Gattica'.
                          That was such a strange movie, IMO. Anyway, Jude Law wouldn't rate as
                          low as a four for me, more along the lines of a six or seven. As
                          a comparison, Oded Fehr in 'The Mummy' and Vigo Mortenson in LOTR
                          are more my idea of 9's or 10's.

                          But, then again, I think Tim Curry in the Rocky Horror Picture Show
                          is a 9 or 10, too. :P~

                            SO's daughter has insisted we *have* to see the movie, she loved it... we
                            haven't as of yet. We have so very little time together that we rarely
                            spend it watching movies or TV.
