Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Wanted

Saw this movie this afternoon. Wanted was very good - somewhat fantastical, but it's based on a comic book, so what do you expect? It's fun, action-packed, a wee bit bloody, but not overly so. Not one for the kiddies, but a fun flick for the grown-ups.

James McAvoy is wonderful as the cube-drone who finds out that he's so much more (ala Neo in Matrix, really). Angelina Jolie is incredibly hot, Morgan Freeman kinda phones it in.

But the revelation for me was the soundtrack. Holy shit. I haven't walked out of movie intending to buy the soundtrack for a long time, but I totally will buy this one. Danny Elfman is a frickin' genius. I stayed through the credits to find out a song that just blew me away and it turns out that Elfman not only wrote it for the soundtrack, he sings it too. Here it is:

I'm going to see that movie tomorrow. =) I rarely like movie soundtracks honestly. I'll have to pay attention to this one. ;) Have a good weekend.

That's a good song. I loved his band Oingo Boingo back in the 80s and really fell in love with his solo album called So - Lo. I'll have to check this movie out.

I just got back from seeing the movie this afternoon. Gotta say I almost entirely disagree with ya Bunny. Did not like the movie at all. Not at ALL.

HOWEVER, I DID like the soundtrack as well. And in fact, the song you posted was one I was singing in my head all the way back to the car. Might have to get it as well.

Buyt the movie itself...tripe. Sorry.

HUGS...

I have thought Elfman was a musical genius since his Oingo Boingo days. Almost every soundtrack he does blows me away.
