Slow Adventures in Slothville

Ungh! I went to see “No Country For Old Men” last night. and in spite of the fact (or….probably because of the fact) the Javier Bardem plays the most squirmingly, teeth-grindingly terrifying villain to ever grace the screen, I am so so so hot for him.

Seriously, I don’t think I have ever been so scared or tense watching a movie and I LOVE scary movies. I couldn’t sit still in my seat and spent much of the film watching through my fingers like a little kid.


In “No Country” The Coen Brothers impress with their ability to stretch our fear endurance to the limit without special effects or gimmicks of any kind. And Bardem is the perfect psychopath – the man you simply cannot reason with or evade. The man whose pursuit feels more like the inexorable crush of death than a chase. There is no escape from him.

But look at him in real life! He’s kind of goofy, right?


Also, unexpectedly WANT:

Josh Brolin with a justache. Trust, he is volcanically hot in this movie. Mmm!

I have to get my thoughts together to write my review. In the meantime I’m trying to avoid everyone else’s so that I remain fresh and unsullied by outside opinions. Mo Laytah.



  1. He must be something for you to get past the pudding-bowl haircut.

    But I could sleep with the Coens myself for this movie.

    All opposable digits uppity.

    I know, Wunelle, he looks appalling in the movie, but my desire was sowed with “The Sea Inside” so watching him out-bad-ass everyone was like watering that sapling of lust.

  3. Not enough film makers have figured out how to scare the shit out of you without using effects of some sort. Sounds like a good movie.

  4. Oka, now I know I HAVE to see this movie. It looked pretty good from the commercials, but now …

    Oh, and BTW, hi there Miss Slothuffleupagus… Long time no type.

  5. Ahhhh, Javier… I’m waiting for “Love in the Time of Cholera.” He looks much hotter in Cholera than this one.
