Earl Murders Me Because I'm Having An Affair Pie...
I tried to watch Paprika tonight only to realize, quite rapidly, that approximately 33% of the dialogue was being translated. Lots of Japanese rapidly whizzing by, accompanied only occasionally by English fragments on the screen. I mean, it's probably fucked up enough without my having to guess at what the fuck they're saying.
Which meant I had to call Netfux to bring this to their attention (they don't seem to have a link on their site for "the movie is not fully translated") and she is sending me another one just for shits. If it continues to be a problem they'll research it but they haven't received any other reports about it (of course, it just came out last Tuesday and I doubt the masses have lined up to rent it, really).
But yesterday I did watch Waitress, which was quite cute. It almost got a little too depressing there in the middle, but it certainly had an upbeat ending. I mean really, here's why you should watch Waitress:
1. It's cute.
2. Leading lady has hot, heavy affair with Nathan Fillion. Yum.
3. They show lots of pies as she makes them. Yum.
So I recommend. Hard not to be sentimental about the director's untimely murder as well, especially since I recall her fondly from Hal Hartley movies, but regardless, the film is more than decent on its own.
