There are movies a-blog!

I went to see Melinda and Melinda with Vivian the other evening. (Kung Fu Hustle was threatened, but plans changed at the last minute.)

I've avoided most of Woody Allen's recent movies (Mighty Aphrodite being the last one I can remember watching and enjoying), but Melinda and Melinda was pleasantly entertaining, only partly stemming from my enthusiasm of postmodern storytelling techniques. Will Ferrell did a surprisingly good job at capturing the essence of the Woody Allen role in Woody Allen movie–he's not going to pass for a short New York Jew anytime soon, but the comedic mannerisms are there, and at this point it's probably less distracting watching Will Ferrell play Amanda Peet's husband than a 85 year old Woody Allen.
