saw The Good Girl last night. cant say that i would recommend it outright but i thought it was well acted. it was written by the guy that wrote Chuck and Buck and possesses a similarly droll and dire perspective. and while i enjoyed the farcical elements, the story itself seemed a little unoriginal and despite the fine acting you never really cared about the fate of the characters. but then i wasnt concerned with much by the end of the night as the champagne hangover began to wreak havoc on my brain. in general i would say i would have been better off with total sobriety or further inebriation, and maybe thats true of the movie as well. heres a salon review that seems about right.

Tron tech trivia from an unverifiable slashdot comment:

Fun factoids: the scenes with live actors inside the computer were filmed in 70mm black and white, then blown up to cel size for rotoscoping/effects work, and re-shot on an animation stand.
I think I know what that means. Sure worked out well. It's still a cool looking effect.

never really thought margaret cho was that funny. i was very, very wrong. she's fucking hilarious. very sexuality and sex-oriented, sailing gleefully past any taboos you might have thought you had. best bit: "what if straight guys menstruated" (at one point she says, i sometimes feel a little weird talking about my period but if Richard Pryor had one, i bet HE woulda talked about it). other highlights include "everybody's a little gay," "Margaret visits the leather scene", the pussy riff, and of course "visit to Water's Gift." the weird thing is, although it's more explicit than Pryor it doesn't seem _dirty_ at all, just achingly funny. at Sunshine.
