EYES OF LAURA MARS


this movie is hilarious. it's a 1978 stylish, corny psychological thriller starring FAYE DUNAWAY fresh from her Oscar win for Network.
lots of screaming and histrionics.
a young tommy lee jones playing a cop in these off-duty awesome lean flared jeans 4 inches too long, skinny leather belt and tucked in top..he's cute in it (how come men with pock marks get hollywood attention (bill murry, edward james olmos..to name 2) how come no ladies with pock marks get hollywood attention?)

i already posted this link on twitter but it's so good it's going here too!

EYES OF LAURA MARS

Helmet Newton is responsible for all the high-fashion art photography. AWESOME sets & clothing. I love 1978. Faye whipping around in a Pacer (w/ faux wood paneling)
& BARBRA streisand sings the theme song which RULES. i couldn't believe it was her. normally i can't deal w/ B.S.

Avatar review (a quickie): I do believe James Cameron is not only on top of the world but may be a closeted feminist! i like his (& the small army of people responsible for this 10-year projet) message in the movie. it is a great message to the masses: war is bad. nature wins. love conquers all. fantasy can become reality. real life sucks. create an avatar.

i dont know if i liked it b/c i went in w/ zero expectations. i thot it was ALL cgi. I breathed a sigh of relief when i saw sigourney weaver (typecast) and real people. ...and yes. the CGI was out of control. When i see movies at the theatre i turn into an 8 year old - gasping and squirming. I get right into it. I'm glad to be able to access that child within at the drop of a hat. lucky me. Something i will never lose. Not at this point.

Avatar was too long though. 'Avatired', as Mindy Kaling tweeted.
