In The Cut. Unrecognisable Meg Ryan. Bleak, so bleak. From the Monster’s Ball school of bleak. Was there even a single lighthearted moment in it? If so I’ve forgotten it. I mean, Mystic River wasn’t a cheerful film, but managed not to be as depressing as this one. Interesting enough plot I suppose, but did I mention how bleak it was?
Shrek 2. Unavoidable ads before movie on the DVD were annoying. Seemed to take a while to get going (or maybe a while for me to get into it). By the end though, I was frequently laughing. Not as good as the first one, but enjoyable.

Okay I remembered a lighthearted moment in In The Cut… the amusing reference to To The Lighthouse.
The best comment I’ve seen on the new ads at the beginning of DVD’s was ‘I had never even thought of downloading a movie until I saw the ad’.
I agree they are very annoying.
Are the ads confined to the rental version I saw, or are they on the For Sale version too? Oh, to answer my question, yes they’re on both but you can fast forward them (which I did, actually).
