Supa Sick Wrap-Up...

Since Supa's been on her back for the last seven plus days (and not in the FUN way), she's got some quality tv-dvd-movie watching and book reading under her belt!

Quick wrap-up as follows:

Walking In Circles Before Lying Down(book), by Merril Markoe

Quick, funny, interesting read. Main character is a sarcastic witty chick from a fantastically dysfunctional family. Bitch got issues! Makes shitty choices in men, and then begins to hear her dog talk - that's when everything hits the fan. Story takes place in LA.

Supa gives it a B-.

Bad Education (La Mala Educacion) written and directed by Pedro Almodovar. Foreign flick by one of Supa's favorite Spanish filmmakers. Also starring that Mexican hottie Gael Garcia Bernal. (Ai', papi..) The movie had been sitting in my TiVo queue for months. Finally watched it. Eh. It was ai'ight. Liked Talk to Her and All About My Mother much better. C--

Capote, starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Wanted to watch about the dude who wrote my beloved Breakfast At Tiffany's. The Theraflu musta kicked in, 'cause I fell asleep.

Grade: ????

The Devil Wears Prada....ummm... Hated It. Next.

Grade: F----------

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Okay...Supa is in love with this flick!!! Love love love. Love Bill Murray. Love the characters, the script, the acting, the quirkiness of this whole film. Love. Am watching it as I type. Love.

Grade: A++++++

30 Rock on NBC starring Tina Fey, Tracey Morgan, Alec Baldwin.

This show is fucking hilarious. No shit. It comes on tonight, so watch it.

PS - Blogger Fam, Supa knows she's done a muy terrible job of checking in on all her peeps blogs lately, please forgive, and rest assured that she's been up to very wonderful, time-consuming things and will let you in on it all very very soon!!!

PPS - Hell naw I 'aint pregnant or gettin' married. Ya'll should know better than that.

Stay fabulous! Stay tuned!

ah hahh...i'm first

loved loved love Life Aquatic, saw it with my family last Christmas

Loved Capote..well my old neighbor was in it so I was biased but it reminded me what made good writers great.

Love Almodavar flicks but haven't seen that one.

I don't think I saw that many movies in all of 2006. Hope you're feeling better!

What's up Supa? Sorry to hear you've been laid out sick. At least you've been making great use of your time. :-)

I had been dying to see 30 Rock and I finally got a chance to catch it tonight. Very funny. Thursday is a hard night for me. I had to record CSI & Grey's Anatomy on the DVR while watching Scrubs and 30 Rock.

Okay, I ready The Devil Wears Prada, the book. Loved it. The movie I liked. Don't get me wrong, it could have been a lot better. But, I think I am so attached to the story because I worked for a complete biatch that was the Ghetto version of Miranda Priestly. I also like Anne Hathaway.

Life Aquatic - I forgot about that one. I'll look for that one tomorrow.

Get well soon!

Damn, Supe. I love The Life Aquatic and 30 Rock. Nice taste! I tried to watch Capote, but I couldn't stay engaged.

Time to get back on your back in a fun way!

I haven't seen the Life Aquatic. . .But now I'm going to NetFlix-it now that I've found my movies to return. . .

Because of you, I saw I heart Huckabees, (and loved-ded it!).

Hey, did you do finally watch the Five Heartbeats? Not trying to put you on blast but we were all surprised that you had not seen that movie!

smoothie said...

I had caught 3 episodes in the past (my fav being the break up one) but i thought eh' it could work if not on against Grays anatomy..Now, after watchin all the episodes this morning, im hooked...

Hope your feeling much better Supa! Theraflu usually does the trick for me.

And about 30 Rock - I feel like I've been under a rock because I'm the only one who hasn't seen it. I haven't seen anything lately!

Miz JJ said...

Get well soon. That flu is nothing to mess with.

I love the 30 Rock. It is the funniest thing on TV after The Office.
