I liked Moulin Rouge. While some parts gave me a headache, because there was so much going on at once, I adored the singing. Ewan McGregor has a wonderful voice, and I was surprised at Nicole Kidman's range, though I do wonder how much work the voice coach had to do.

I was also surprised at the chemistry between McGregor and Kidman -- there was much more there than I expected. To save myself time, because I need to sleep, I'll mention that the salon review is the closest to my thoughts on the movie.



Speaking of sleep, I need to get up way too early tomorrow, to haul my patootie on the treadmill. I do this for two reasons: 1) I have a 9 am conference call, which means I have to be in by 8:30, instead of leaving my house at that time as per usual, and 2.) I can't get on the treadmill after work due to the magic tournament draft tomorrow night.
That's always amusing, and lasts most of the night; good thing we only do that when a new set comes out.



zen_raven (the Other Heather) took possession of her house yesterday! I went over to help her measure it, and we ran into the most hick people at dinner. But she tells the story much better than I.



Swordfish comes out this weekend. mmm. Hugh Jackman.



You know what's weird? I had the most frustrating day at work today (network blowing up, computer taunting me, working short handed, etc), and I was utterly grumpy. Then I went to my GRE prep course, and did some math problems and some tests, and I walked out to my car with a bounce in my step.

Yep, I'm certifiable.

I saw Moulin Rounge this weekend also and really enjoyed it. I was very surprised at the voices for both MacGregor and Kidman. I loved the way the film looked too. It reminded me of a stage play!
