Just this moment got done watching Observe and Report and ... meh. What an uneven movie - I felt as though it had no idea what it wanted to be. Some parts were funny but most others were too mean-spirited to be funny, and yet it was, in parts, intentionally too goofy to be a serious twisted satire. Mr. Mouse - who stayed awake for the whole thing, having seen it before - kept telling me how dark and twisted it was. Well, Heathers is pretty friggin' dark and twisted, and yet knows exactly what it's doing the whole way through. I liked seeing Seth Rogen stretch his acting chops a little out of the schlumpy Judd Apatow roles he's mostly had; I also liked seeing him slimmed down a bit - a precursor to his skinny new physique for Green Hornet or Green Lantern or whatever superhero origin flick he's doing. And I do enjoy Anna Faris, although her character wasn't the slightest bit sympathetic.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to what comes next in my movie queue. Don't have a clue what it is, but I'm looking forward to it. Also, I may have to watch Heathers again soon.
