Somebody please tell me that this isn't how it actually ends, and that our satellite just went out.

I've decided that On the Lot is quite a bit like American Idol, without all of the horrible singing and musical massacre and with movies, so I like it a lot. In an effort to further hone my amazing critiquing skillz, I've decided to give a brief analysis of each of the films.


I read that the show isn't doing too hot in the ratings. I blame the Godawful host. But because it's summer, , it's most likely going to last this entire season.

And does anybody have any recs for good novel-length fic? Harry Potter, Doctor Who, House?

It's official: Girls have sucky taste in movies.

Anybody who knows me knows that romcoms are my Great Enemy. Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, anyone? The only movie I ever wanted to walk out on.

*cries* There are so many better movies! Breakfast at Tiffany's. Love Actually. Clueless. Now I have a special place in my heart for Clueless. I don't think a movie influenced teenage culture intelligently as Clueless did. With a plot that was based on classic literature, for God's sake, and a main character who was sexy, intelligent, admired, while still being a good and moral person.

I left a comment on there, though it's not up yet, but please. Dirty Dancing?! Just look at the Wikipedia page for it. "The Star Wars for girl."

REALLY?! In my opinion, this does not make my gender look very good.

At least it's just a ranking of most watched, as opposed to favorites, or quality. I can, in my mind, imagine that when girls watch it, they know just how bad it is, that it's a "dirty pleasure" movie.

What's your dirty pleasure movie, or your opinion on Dirty Dancing? You know mine, and my dirty pleasure movie is Down with Love, and even that is a clever pastiche of 1960s romcoms. Lemme start over, then. One Fine Day. George Clooney, yum.

Also, don't get me started on Rent.

I suppose the only comfort I take in this statement is the fact that the girls who also admire Paris Hilton. OH, BURN.

I'm going to go watch When Harry Met Sally.

I spent all weekend trying to hook up my Tivo to my family's DirectTV...$70, a new cable, and a wireless adapter later, I find out that the dual tuner feature doesn't even work - and in my opinion, ends up being a rather bothersome piece of hardware instead of useful. It seems a rather childish and silly gripe, I know, but it's damn frustrating, as I worked rather hard on getting it to work just right. Especially compared to when I was at school, where the Tivo took me literally five minutes to set up.

Anyway, my parents got enough of a sneak peek of what Tivo's like to decide they want a DVR of their own...so, sigh. Yay. I now have PILES of clothes to put away...

The Office, omg, surprised

I just watched Witness for the Prosecution for the first time ever, and I'll admit, it's my first Billy Wilder movie.

Wow.

Wow.

FUCKING WOW.

What a fantastic movie! Not just a compelling courtroom drama (I love that with the blood as the evidence, I wondered why they didn't do a DNA test, and I realized just how easy the case would have been then...amazing to think of how crime is so difficult to commit today! :-D) but also hysterical! What fantastic characters, and, of course, my God, that ending. So you're watching this fantastic movie, then BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! All in the last 2 minutes.

Fucking fantastic.


I read that this, The Usual Suspects, and The Crying Game are the movies with the best twist endings of all time. I've seen the first two, and I know the twist for the last - damn you, VH1!!! - so my question to you is this: What's your favorite movie with a twist ending?

And I'm going to be a wreck tomorrow, but I only have two classes, and my sophomore college year ends tomorrow at noon. OMG.
