My Top 5 Artists (Week Ending 2009-11-29)
My boss got me this for xmas. I was really excited since I enjoyed The Time Traveler’s Wife. I think  TTW raised my expectations a bit. It is hard to follow up such a breakout debut novel.  It was slow, but enjoyable. Niffenegger clearly has a way with relatable love stories with a supernatural element. I just was disappointed with the ending and some of the shallow character development. It was beautifully written with a very rich setting, but the ending was a bit sloppy. Despite all this, I will recommend this.
This about sums it up:
What begins as an interesting, if not thrilling, character study quickly devolves into a clunky science-fiction story – but if you like that sort of thing, this has one of the most unsettling endings I’ve ever encountered.

Today’s movie choice.I am a little dismayed that it ranked higher than Get Real, so I’m expecting good things.Even if I predict that I’ll still love Get Real more.I respond well to the comedy section of this genre and enjoy them greatly but they’re not the ones that are truly beloved to me.I’ll just have to watch & see.It’s kinda a shame that I’m watching it after MBL, because that’s going to make anything look bad. It’s a shame I’m never objective. Magic that is me.

Great movie
