Review: Chicago and Weekend (Text)


Well just a quickie tonight — watched Chicago tonight at Cam and Melissa’s, what a blast. The plot outline (also from imdb): “Murderesses Velma Kelly (Who blanked out and killed her cheating husband) and Roxie Hart (Who killed her boyfriend in a jealous rage) strive for fame at any costs including scandal and lies in 1920s Chicago.”
Pretty amazing film really. Everything was totally larger-than-life; all the characters bold. Subtle like chainsaw!
Defintely worth the rental.
My weekend (in words):

  • With Darren, Cam, and Melissa, drove downtown to the Hollywood 20 movies theatre complex.
  • Because the box office had been closed for the past hour or so due to a faulty air-conditioner, there was a mad rush to buy tickets when it finally re-opened. In order to guarantee ourselves a spot, Jeff bought a block of tickets for the Matrix, and we paid him later. What did I think? By now, I’m sure you’ve all the reviews, and if you haven’t, let me summarize: most critics think the movie blows, leaving many questions unanswered and creating more of its own. I’m here to say that I think the movie probably *did* answer most of the questions. They’re just not handed to you on a silver platter. But that’s all I’m going to say on the topic for now, since (a) I’m still digesting it all and (b) I know not everyone has seen it.
  • Vodka Melon.
  • Chocolate
  • Choc-Marg-Choc-Jeff
  • Kemp
  • Cam in motion
  • Me
  • Jeff and Margarita
  • Melissa
  • Bailey’s and mint
  • Some sorta mixed-up Jeff margarita.
  • These used to be full
  • Got up, bought lunch and a pair of shorts for less than $10 total at a nearby Super Walmart, and proceeded to throw around a disc with Cam in high winds for extended periods of time.
  • Got home, all I wanted to do was relax — this is my Barq’s.

  1. I should probably provide you guys with the recipe of the evening.
    Dirty Girl Scout Cookie:
    1oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
    1/2oz Green Creme de Menthe
    Shake with ice and shoot when done.
    You’ll find it tastes very much like a thin mint girl scout cookie (you have those in Canada?).

  2. Thanks for ruining the movie for me by letting me know that the movie DOES answer the questions I had in my mind before seeing it, even though obscurely. 😀
    And yes Jeff, in this igloo/pointytreelandish backwater known as Canada, we have girl scout cookies. Hehe. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Now Neil, don’t make me use the I’m from further North than you are card…besides maybe your girl scouts do the same thing ours do.
