I really didn't enjoy The Life Aquatic, even despite a notable fondness for previous Wes Anderson movies (my favorite being Rushmore). I chuckled a couple of times and appreciated seeing Willem Defoe in a comedy but that aside I was completely bored. I've been looking forward to the film for some time and was disappointed that I just couldn't get into it.

Heather proposed leaving a quarter the way through, but I kept hoping it would pick up. And it did. But not enough to salvage my opinion of the movie.

Tomorrow we're going to watch Bottle Rockets again.

So I'm not the only one who spaced off. I still liked it for some reason, but then again, I'm not a huge fan of Rushmore.

You know how most of the time when you're at a movie you forget you are in a theatre and when the movie ends there is this coming-down moment where you become aware of the other movie-watchers and phase back into reality? During this movie I was painfully aware of the theatre and environment and other patrons the entire time. I just couldn't lose myself in the film. And I really wanted to because I was tired and had a long week and really wanted to just go out and be entertained. Ah, well.

I was also annoyed, I think, by the five or six commercials they had at the beginning at Loews. I don't watch television so when i see a commercial they really grate on my nerves.
