MITZI WE OWN THE NIGHT
Hidey ho, guys and gals! Today, I gonna talk a lil' bit 'bout moi aka me, for those of you who don't speak FRANCAIS. So, have
you ever wondered why I watch so many movies? Do you think that I'm kind of a nerd? Sometimes I feel like the only world that
really exists is the world in my imagination and sometimes I just feel so very alone, ya know? I loved LORD OF THE RINGS and I
have read OVID, DANTE & HOMER. My favorite artist is VINCENT VAN GOGH (if you have not see his
museum in AMSTERDAM, you must). I adore PARIS and VICTOR HUGO (he is quit funny) and I wish I had a big
black CHANEL bag. Okay,
that's 'nough. This movie review is dedicated to my GRANDMOTHER. Love you, LG.

Well, I had a gig a few months ago and I had to do a little thing with one of the most beautiful men I have ever seen. We had
a moment, if you know what I mean, perhaps a few. Anyway, the gorgeous man, whom I will probably never see again, is a cop. So,
I decided to check out some cop movies and such to help ease the pain of the end of our brief encounter. So, who better to
distract an anguished heart than MARK WAHLBERG in a police outfit, hmmm? So, yeah, good movie. ROBERT DUVALL plays DADDY COP
and MARKY MARK his dutiful son cop. Very talented, JOAQUIN PHOENIX plays black sheep son and brother. EVA MENDES is his sexy
girlfriend. The story is pretty good, a bit long and sometimes confusing, but the actors pull you through with their talent.
Boy, that JOAQUIN is simply mesmerizing. His face can do things that others can't. ROBERT DUVALL is ROBERT DUVALL, always
brill. I like the look of this film, too. So, I guess that means good job to the set department. The music is good. This
film is definitely one of my faves this year, and it is not just 'cuz it is 'bout cops, it is just a good old fashioned movie
with really good acting.
