Tonight me and TJ went to see the “utterly bleak” indie film starring Tilda Swinton called “We Need to Talk About Kevin.” We were warned, and it’s definitely not a date movie. Sort of like “The Omen” but without a supernatural element. Swinton’s character gives birth to a child that is malevolent from day 1. Sort of like Damien for atheists. Meanwhile BrettCajun is watching “The Lorax”:
We Need to Talk About BrettCajun
It just so happened I had also rented “Orlando” (1992) last week from Netflix. Not as depressing and definitely worth watching if you haven’t seen it before.

    Are they making a sequel called “We Need to Talk about Brett”?

    I loved ‘Orlando’, though it’s been 20 years since I’ve seen it. Yes, I’m that old!

    “We Need to Talk About Brett Cajun” – you know that’s exactly what he wants. Don’t fall into his trap!

    (WHISPERING) I have been to the OTHER SIDE! We must leave this sick and twisted institution before we are ALL riddled with Social Syphilis. BEWARE OF THE CHURCH OF BLOGATOLOGY! We are all outcast misfits festering in our own social retardation. Get out before it’s too late!

    I loved Orlando. I saw it in the theater in Vienna in 1993. Great movie.

    TJ from “DurbanBud”? He’s alive?

    I read We Need To Talk about Kevin, and I thought it was a bad idea to make it a movie. It’s too depressing, and the narrative structure of the book really doesn’t lend itself to filming. I’m a big fan of Tilda Swinton, but I think I’ll avoid it. I will try to see Orlando, but perhaps I’ll read the book first. I’m a big fan of Virginia Woolf, too.

    Mike…I hate to say it… but Durban Bud is riddled with Social Syphilis and Purserpes (pursing lip syndrome). I told TJ his slutty ways will come back to bite him! Nowadays, you can sadly find him uttering unintelligible jibber jabber on FB chronicling bizarre thoughts that cross his mind or that obsession with Susan Powter. We gave him a Boo Boo Kitty named “Chuck” for comfort.

    Yes, Tilda is a good actress… but she really creeps me out.

    I adore Orlando. The film can’t really be compared to any other and the soudtrack is an amazing fusion of new age synth music with medieval/baroque influences. A perfect role for Tilda.
