Sunday's Entertainment Wrap Up

I saw I 'Heart' Huckabees this afternoon. I don't think I can say I loved it, but I certainly liked it *a lot*. I really wish I had more knowledge of some of the concepts behind the film to better convey to you all just how trippy and intelligent this film is. I can say I laughed out loud numerous times and cringed at a couple of cheap gross outs. But, the one thing that really hit me while I was watching it was that it was making me think (how rare is thatin film today?). Not just about the plot or characterizations either, but about ideas and concepts and feelings and how it all applied to me. So, yeah, I'd definitely recommend this one.

This afternoon I caught bits and pieces of Peacekeeper Wars while tidying up the place. Damn if I didn't get weepy again. But, something struck me that I hadn't thought of before....
The wormhole technology was removed from John's brain. I still argue that he could relearn the technology or come across another naturally occuring wormhole to take him back to earth. But, I came up with another scenerio. What if earth comes to him? In one of the final two episodes of season 4, John makes his final trip back to our little part of the galaxy. He calls his dad from the moon to tell him what he is about to do and say goodbye. He also leaves behind his tape recorder with everything he's learned about wormholes. So, Sci-Fi willing and we get more Farscape I'm wondering if Jack or someone else is going to open the door again. Afterall, it was a fluke John created one to begin with, I'm sure another human can solve the mystery.

One more thing, are we to assume John, Aeryn, and the baby will be staying on Moya? I'd hate to think of Moya and Pilot ending up all alone. Pilot especially seems to enjoy the company of the others.

Following watching the finale, I decided to go back to the beginning. No grand observations to make yet other than I love how John and Aeryn spoke up for each other and decided to stick together nearly from the moment they met.

And another line that always gets me? When Aeryn tells John that she doesn't know anything besides being a Peacekeeper, John stops what he's doing, looks her in the eye, and announces "you can be more". Sigh.

I've only gotten about half way through 'I, ET'. Not one of my favorite episodes, but the show had yet to find it's footing. I hadn't recalled John picking up the alien lingo so quickly until I heard him say "What the hesmata is it?".

Does anyone else feel that on Desperate Housewives they either need to find a better reason for having Nicolette Sheridan around or they need to write out the character? She really has added nothing to the show thus far. The car washing thing was just embarassing.

And did Felicity Huffman loose a kid? The youngest boy seemed MIA tonight.

Oooh, I like the idea of Earth coming to John. But I still maintain there is a way to wank the whole wormhole knowledge removal, if there were ever to be a continuation, because Harvey quite specifically says "wormhole weapon", which could just be referring to the very last bit of knowledge Einstein gave John.

Haven't seen Desperate Housewives yet, but Nicollette Sheridan doesn't seem to matter at all for the story, except being a foil for the heroine (Teri Hatcher) and she seems quite capable of fouling up her own life.

I agree. I don't think all his knowledge regarding wormholes was erased. Just enough so, supposedly, he can't build another wormhole weapon. But, who is to say he couldn't gain that knowledge again naturally? And if little bits of information come trickeling back, would Harvey return? There are so many ways to wank all of this. It would seem the writers went out of their way to provide loopholes.

Hee. Yeah, I just wanted to smack Teri silly last night.
First of all--pretty new colors here!

Thanks! Though, I can't seem to bring myself to get away from the blue tones.

Secondly, I definitely think John, Aeryn and the baby will stay on Moya. She's been their home for the last four years and I think they're pretty fond of her and of Pilot.

And it's possible that Moya could decide to stay in orbit around Hyneria, keeping the gang together. I have this sneaking suspicion that Rygel would be a doting uncle. ;)

Teri Hatcher's character? I want to smack.

See my response to Jems above. ;-)
I've been dithering about whether or not to see I Heart Huckabees. It's got such a great cast, and it sounds...interesting, but some of the reviews I read were pretty scathing. But now thanks to you I'm leaning towards wanting to see it.

Nicolette Sheridan's character does seem to exist only to be the neighborhood tramp. And Felicity Huffman was missing a son last night.

I heard that after it showed at, I think, the Toronto Film Festival, reactions were pretty divided between loved it or hated it. I think it would be hard to find middle ground when it come to this film.

The cast was excellent all around. I especially liked that I wasn't seeing Dustin Hoffman play Dustin Hoffman, if you know what I mean. And it's so rare that a movie makes you pay attention and think while watching it, it gets huge bonus points from me there.

I was content with Nicolette Sheridan providing a foil for Susan until last night when Susan gave away her date with Mike.

It might or might not be justifiable dramatically, depending on where they go with it. My complaint is totally personal. It was a very upsetting moment for a nascent Susan/Mike shipper.

I lurve Susan. She's part Lucy, part Stephanie Plum, part everywoman.

Apparently you're more invested in the show than I because I haven't gotten to that point. If not for Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, I don't know that there would be much to keep me tuned in week to week.

BTW, Enterprise? I quit.
I'm thinking if Farscape ever continues, it will pick up years later when John and Aeryn's kid is at least 5 or 6 years old.

I have been thinking they could do a spin-off with Jack and a new cast as Earth goes searching for John.
*feeling very Farscape-deprived*

Thanks for the Huckabees rec; I'll try to see it this week. I don't agree with critics very often anyway.

Your new colors are very soothing. I think I need some ginger tea to go with them. :o)

Thanks. :) Maybe that's why I always gravitate towards using blues. LJ is my lone soothing place to visit some times. ;)

I'll be interested in reading your review of Huckabees. It's not everyone's taste, but it was refreshing to see something that tried to be different.

I wish I could help with your Farscape deprevation. If you're ever in Michigan, swing on by and watch some with me. :)
