Je suis un génie, pas un ingénieur

30 December 2005

Hola peoples, how was everyone’s christmas, I’m just back up in Dublin from Sligeach, had a very nice time, we even had snow so we did. Not on christmas day itself, but yesterday. I’ll stick a few photos on flickr later on.

I really should be unpacking, but I flicked on the telly when I came in and The Man In The Iron Mask was on. Such a terrible terrible film. That writing, tut tut tut. This is the 1998 version, with Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, Gérard Depardieu, Gabriel Byrne and Leonardo DiCaprio. Honestly, is this one of the worst films ever made? That Randall Wallace boy[1] sure did write/direct some stinker, but at the same time, if you ignore the scenes with DiCaprio, and the crap storyline and just watch the auld lads having a laugh playing with swords, then it is worth a watch.

Plus, it has yer man in it, who was in Garden State, and both NM and I said that he sounded very like John Malkovich. Who did Peter Sarsgaard play here? Raoul, John Malkovich’s son.

Anyways, I’m off to play catch up on other blogs out there.

    "I can't my Lord, I'm in love with Raoul"
    Yeah, never saw that movie, so the accuracy of this quote is doubtful, but it stays with me. Forever.

    Well, I'll be a spoilerific-ho Anne, I'm afraid she lied.

    She may have loved Raoul, but she did. With her lord.

    I think your quote is fairly accurate.

    I started watching that film, but got distracted by something shiny* and played with that instead.
    My Crimble was very quiet. Had a friend over for Xmas dinner**, walked my dog, watched tv, ate and drank just enough stuff without overdoing it, and generally had a very nice relaxing time. Thank you for asking, and glad you had a good time as well :)
