Movie Rec Lars and the Real Girl  
Well I'm glad people are having a fun time with the Which QaF Cannibal Character are you? quiz.

There are a surprising number of Ranger Bens out there. *lifts eyebrow suspiciously*

Anywho, I remember I said that Beowulf was a horrid movie and to NOT NOT NOT see it.

Well, I have been wanting to post a rec for a movie that you SHOULD GO SEE for a while now but keep getting distracted!!!!

It's called Lars and the Real Girl.

Yes, it's the movie where the guy 'dates' a sex doll.

Here's a preview courtesy of youtube:

Why should you see it? Am I really that insane that I would rec a movie about a guy with a sex doll?

Well, yes, I am insane but that's beside the point.

This movie is perfect. Ryan Gosling is perfect is as the flawed yet sweet hero. You just want to take the man home and take care of him.

And another perfect performance is by Paul Schneider as his brother Gus. This man has to show a range of emotions and he does so perfectly.

Half the time I was laughing during the movie.

The other half I was silently crying.

I absolutely ADORE this movie and I think you will too.

Lars and the Real Girl
It's in my Netflix queue NOW. Be warned: it may be early 2009 before it works its way to the top.

Thanks for the recommendation. FanSee

P.S. My unknown favorite is "Fresh." It's violent but in an intelligent way.

Re: Lars and the Real Girl
I haven't heard of that one yet. Sounds interesting.

I just want to watch something original, ya know?

Hope it's not that long before you see it!!! :)

That looks good! And it's got one of my favorite actresses - Patricia Clarkson.

I saw that movie and loved it too!! It was quirky and loveable, just like its lead character, Lars. :)

I didn't like "August Rush"... It's more of a kid's movie, I guess. If you've seen it and loved it, my apologies, but I found it was overly sentimental and had me rolling my eyes a lot. My friend, however, loved it... Go figure. :/

Meanwhile, I'm trying to convince myself to get up and start the day... *yawn*

You saw the movie?!?! God I loved this movie so so so much!

I'm not sure I plan on seeing August Rush. I like to take the whole family to the movies, but I didn't really want to take them to that one.

This looks like a DVD movie. :)

Yeah, I dragged a friend to see Lars, and she loved it too. My initial interest was because I'm one of the few who loved that 80's movie "Mannequin". It had a kind of sweetness and the love of the townspeople made Bianca real. (My friend who I took to the Lars movie is the same one who loved "August Rush", lol.) I can say that the big screen did justice to the scenery in "August Rush", but since opinion is subjective, and if you can suspend your disbelief, you may like it.
