Garden State

A full price movie review! That's how good this movie is. How good is it?

So good I cried. Twice. Since I cry at pretty much everything, this isn't a big surprise to those who know me.

So good I laughed many times. And not at stupid things, but at smart dialog and good writing.

So good I immediately drove to Best Buy and attempted to purchase the soundtrack. They were out. I then proceeded to drive my husband crazy by asking him to visit every store he passed on his way home that sold any type of music. He went to 5 stores and came home empty handed. I called three more stores and also struck out. I finally downloaded the iTunes iMix (The "i" ibefore ieverything istops ibeing icute iand igets ireally iold iafter iabout ithree iminutes ion iTunes) of the Garden State Soundtrack, as the real soundtrack wasn't available. A couple of the artists aren't even available on iTunes, so I'm still gonna need to order it somewhere. Dammit. I guess I should be pleased that so many others are also loving the soundtrack, but it makes life more difficult for me.

So good I called Frinklin upon leaving the theater and informed him that I would be leaving him for Zach Braff. I feel a little guilty about this, as Frinklin was the one who originally got me to start watching Scrubs. It's always worse when the husband introduces his wife to the other man.

I'll be going back to visit my boyfriend on the big screen this weekend. And Natalie Portman, who I also love.

Confidential to Zach Braff (who I'm SO sure will be reading this)--Thank you for giving Natalie Portman's character epilepsy. My sister has epilepsy, and for whatever reason, it makes me happy to see others with epilepsy portrayed as normal human beings without seizures, as they are most of the time.

PS--Zach Braff's Garden State Blog will be taking up permanent residence in my blogroll, too. Because I love him.
