No, rx not that Voyager!! :)

I’ve been watching “Now, more about Voyager” and commenting on my own damn facebook status like a moron, so I’ll just jot my thoughts down here instead.

[from Facebook]

5:10 – i’m already amazed by 1) those damn eyebrows and 2) the word secretiveness (which she pronounces like she’s secreting something….)

nowvoy5
11:40 – and I’m sorry, but in this flashback scene the seaman is wearing SO much more makeup than she is…..cute, but frightening

nowvoy5
23:24 – lipstick: check! eyebrows: check! cute dress and sufficiently pouty bosoms: check!

nowvoy5
38:00 – oh, just knitting on the deck? I’m surprised she didn’t pack her damn loom.

[this is when i gave up and came here]

nowvoy5
40:12 – could we spare more than one and a half goddamn seconds on the gigantic statue of christ? THE iconic landmark of rio?

nowvoy5
41:33 – now i want the movie to become romancing the stone. i think it would work!

nowvoy5
43:06 – oh, foreigners! you’re so loud and gesticulative! and how do you spell “Giuseppe” in Portuguese? maybe he LEARN EENGLISH FROMABUUK

nowvoy5
47:40 – ::gasp:: MONTAGE!

nowvoy5
49:00 – say what you will, but i appreciate the possibly unintentional irony of bringing up immortality after you’ve lit two cigarettes…

nowvoy5
50:45 – thumb on her chin, which means kiss in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1….

nowvoy5
DINGDINGDINGDING!!

nowvoy5
52:03 – NO!!!! how you kiss her not once, now twice, but THREE TIMES through her veil? that’s not romantic, that’s just weird…..maybe because it sounds like her name?

nowvoy5
53:10 – “what am I here for?” that’s what we’re all wondering, honey….

nowvoy5
56:10 – ah, yes, the chatty nurse/servant character actress…always nice to see she’s getting work

nowvoy5
58:20 – AHHH HAT HAIR!! and……magically fixed

nowvoy5
1:00:37 – she wants the damn eyebrows back?! she must be evil…..

nowvoy5
1:06-30 – “for as long as I can remember that fire has never been lit” oh, the innuendo

nowvoy5
1:18:00 – OK the piano was playing “Night and Day” but what music is this that the orchestra is playing? It’s so familiar!!…..

nowvoy5
1:20:00 – I understand the scene at the railway station is obligatory, but for the first time they’re not lighting her well. i only say this because suddenly her eyes look HUGE

nowvoy5
1:24:10 – remind me again what they mean by “make love” because it’s the second time she’s said it and I’m really confused…..

nowvoy5
1:26:13 – holy shit will this music ever STOP???? or at least move on to a different theme group, it’s crazy. on the other hand i like the compromise dress – bad print, good cut….

nowvoy5
1:28:00 – YES YELLING! oh, and she’s dead.

nowvoy5
1:29:35 – who’s Jerry? the bellhop? oh it must be the cute guy with the cloyingly familiar daughter

nowvoy5
1:32:05 – if you’re twelve i’m eighteen

nowvoy5
1:33:07 – we’re supposed to know that Christine = Tina, right? they’ve given us that much credit….

nowvoy5
1:39:00 – sorry it got really believable and i got completely distracted.

nowvoy5
1:45:45 – ANOTHER MONTAGE? with the added drudgery of the odometer running….blech. it’s almost over, right?

nowvoy5
THE END – it really flew by, actually – what happened? denouement? a whole other movie – a much more pedantic one – happened between the mother’s death and the end. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t the tiniest bit underwhelmed. I’m glad the ending was ambiguous, though….I would have thrown up in my mouth if we’d seen rice spurt across the blurry wedding scene as the final credits rolled.

p. s. this was the runner-up LOL.
