M: He! He's a little too tall!
L: I'll be right back, I have the lyrics on my phone. Don't ask me why.
M2: [hands over album] The lyrics to Night Moves should be right there.
J: You're both wrong. "I was a little too tall."
M: He doesn't really enunciate. And I was talking about him! He is a little too tall.
J: So we're trying to blog about The Quiet Hour. But mostly we're singing Bob Seger.
[20 minute discussion about Bob Seger and who the members of the Silver Bullet band actually look like.]
M: [hands over glass of champagne]
J: The Quiet Hour!
M: The Quiet Hour. I whispered that.
M2: [shows Rod Stewart album cover]
|The main character. I don't remember her name.|
M2: There's a lot of songs about "you". You're Insane, You're in My Heart...
M: So! We went to The Free State Festival. Jenna will link it.
J: I paid the nice lady some extra money to give me ALL the wine. So I only sort of remember this movie.
M: She was a nice lady. And I just want to say... shout out to the Free State Festival. That was my first time attending any events this year. I attended three. They were all excellent.
J: I think that was the only one I made it to, and it was too cool. Can't wait for next year. So what'd you think of the movie?
M: Um. If I'm being honest, it was not my favorite. I had high hopes and it was... it was substantially compelling. It seemed, and I always hate this compliment, somebody gave me the compliment once of being "well-rendered".
J: That seems accurate. Personally, I liked the storyline. That being said, I think I would have appreciated more action. It was definitely moving in a good direction, and then it just seemed like it was over before anything happened.
M: Yes. I feel like I've seen that movie before, just with a different premise.
|The other main character. Le stranger.|
J: It certainly wasn't original. Your basic human survivalist scenario. Wasn't it really similar in...
J: That's exactly what I was going to say! The plot... well, the basics... were definitely similar. How does a person react in worst case scenario with one ally.
M: But no Cillian Murphy in this one, which is an automatic [gestures incoherently] you know [gestures again] ding, for me.
J: In any case, I would recommend this, though I think Mere would not, but either way, lovely brogue, interesting ideas, and a tidy plot.
M: And it's really not the worst. I mean, I watched the whole thing.
J: We were at the theater.
M: And it has some local ties! It won something at the Kansas City Film Festival. And that's when I learned, Kansas City has a film festival.
J: Go Kansas City!
M: Can we brogue the next movie?
|These people. They're gross.|
J: There's another movie?
M: Well, the one we're gonna go see.
J: We're about to go see Trainwreck, folks... pretty sure that's a no... [checks IMDB]... the dogwalker... DANIEL RADCLIFFE! We can blog it! I'm so excited.
M: Let's do it! [raises glass] With faux enthusiasm.
J: Till next time!
