Freeman at the Movies

I saw Atonement and Rambo. Both are hilarious.

"Atonement" and hilarious? Hmm. Interesting.

I found the film so sad, that I couldn't eat my oats.

Now I think I could agree with "Rambo 5000" aka HGH infomercial to the stars.

Yeah, I know a lot of people liked Atonement. I just kept feeling like Ricky Gervais was about to trip into any particular shot and say "Oh, sorry Keira. You're a...nurse?"

Rambo was funny whenever they talked. And when they were shooting stuff. But they mostly shot stuff, thus justifying the film.

Oh, then I agree. I do think she was better in this film and in "Pride and Prejudice" because Joe Wright actually gives her direction.

Has no figured out yet, that she really Winona Ryder with an English accent?
