Chicago

Finally saw Chicago last night. I loved Queen Latifah's performance and I was pleasantly surprised by Catherine Zeta-Jones as she is not really my favorite. Renee Zellweger did a good job, but I thought Richard Gere's performance was lackluster at best... not horrible, just not the caliber performance I would have expected.

The dance numbers rocked of course, but I don't know about best picture... guess I will have to wait until I see some of the other nominees (all of which I wanted to see while they were in the theatre, but didn't). I think Adaptation, About Schmidt, The Hours, and Far From Heaven are going to have to be purchased soon!

Best Line: Velma Kelly: Shit! (after seeing Roxy faint and claim "I hope the fall didn't hurt the baby!")

Best Performance: Queen Latifah

Rating: **** (4/5 stars)

Heh, I have yet to see any of those films :P

Of course, as you well know, I will never watch The Hours as you know how I feel about Virginia Woolf. The others I wouldn't mind seeing. Maybe some day in this life time!

Ooooh that sounds good ... we could get together and watch one of those sometime. (I will even put my puppy dogs outside for you my dear!)

I agree-- Queen Latifah was awesome. I also really liked Renee Zellweger's performance, but I'm biased because I pretty much always think that she's great. :P

Renee
I have to agree, I love her! She is simply splendid and next to probably Julianne Moore I think she is one of the most beautiful actresses around today.

Bridget Jones was hilarious, of course I loved her (even though I wasn't paying much attention as I was staring at the eye candy that is Colin Firth)!

Yeah she was good in Chicago, and I think she will make a great Marilyn Monrore after seeing her in some of those sequences. I still can't help but picture Bebe Neuwirth as Velma, but now I am convinced she would make an outstanding Bellatrix Lestrange!
