Movie Monday - "Tangled"


Written on 4/28/2008 08:48:00 PM by Julia O'Keeffe

A younger Jonathan.

He tries to talk without his accent. It sounds...different.

Rachel Leigh Cook reminds me of a goldfish. Or a Kewpie doll.

Alan (JRM) believes in the "beauty of the impulsive act"

So he stands on the roof of a moving car:

He smooshes a Twinkie on her face and licks it off.
A relationship is born:
(I just like the shot of his tongue.)

His college friend is in love with RLC's character, Jenny. Tells her Alan is trouble. Much "so-called life" dialogue. You know, the incredibly articulate, poetic, tortured stuff that was all the rage in the early 90s.

Alan responds thusly:

(The dialogue for this scene: "Yes, this is my ass, and I figured since this is how you see me....the people at Kinkos were none too happy..." On a kite. LMAO!)

Jenny sets up camera to take portrait for photography class. Alan decides this is opportunity to strip down to nothing:

Although I can't upload that picture, the scene is here. NSFW!

After that - lot of shit goes down - betrayal, drama, etc.

Big love triangle.

It was so-so till the end.

At one point I thought, "Heh, it's like an R-rated after-school special"

The ending was pretty good. In a psychological thriller, dark, puzzle solving kinda way.

The more time that passes since I've seen it, the more I want to see it again.

RATING: 4/5 = Putting it on the To Buy list!
