two versions of beauty in film
The Dark Knight
She: "It was too hot to do much of anything this weekend, so you chose the movies after going to see Sex and The City with me. Two for one seemed fair."
He: "Well, I really wanted to see The Dark Knight and thought you might like Mamma Mia."
She: "Thank you. I think we really liked both movies, but Batman was awesome!"
He: "Oh man, Heath Ledger was fantastic as The Joker. I keep thinking about him."
She: "For real. There's a lot going on in his face. I mean, The Joker is exaggerated in that way, but he was amazing in Brokeback Mountain with his face - the pursed lips. It's the same thing in Batman and the voice he came up with was so weird."
He: "The Joker is usually crazy, but kind of pulled together. His interpretation was of a guy who was disheveled, smeared and deranged. He was magnificent. The special effects were cool and the story kept you on the edge of your seat."
She: "I think it was visually beautiful in a dark way - very modern. And, Gotham feels like NYC. Everyone was great, including Maggie Gyllenhaal - she has some edge to her that is believable. And, Christian Bale - hubba, hubba."
He: "Ok, calm down. I think Mamma Mia was actually scarier."
She: "How so?"
He: "Pierce Brosnan can not sing, although Meryl Streep can and was really great."
She: "Well, Pierce really can't sing and they couldn't even do anything in production to hide it. He's pretty to look at though."
He: "So was Amanda Seyfried."
She: "Agreed and she has a lovely voice. I thought Greece looked absolutely beautiful, too. Bottom line is it was a fun summer movie, very upbeat."
He: "Oh yeah, what's with all the squealing girls do when they get together in the movie? The same thing happened in Sex and The City."
She: "I have NO idea! It drives me crazy, too. I don't know girls who act like that."
He: "Were you crying?"
She: "When they sing Dancing Queen it just kills me. Add it to the list with Moon River I guess? If I can get past the crying, it's a great song to start off the day."
He: "Yeah, way better than the band you've been listening to on repeat."
She: "Hey watch it, my letterpress skull card is on the way. You don't want to see your name on it do you?"
He: [I'm realizing we could have probably skipped Mamma Mia! She's obviously going through a dark phase. It's usually temporary, at least I hope so. What does this mean anyway: 8-X?]
