It was. It was a lie... but then it was a dream.

caught a few mins of benjamin button on tv and espionaged julia ormond and grew nostalgic about the movie sabrina. the new one. the good one. and i know why julia ormond is so irresistible..when really no one should be more so than audrey. its because audrey is audrey. but julia is sabrina. its pretty much the difference between the two movies. humphrey bogart is no linus larrabee. also sydney pollack is a genius. *sigh* its one of those ones where i know all the dialogue cause i used to watch it with the pater all the time. every time it was on. i feel deja vu writing this... i has blogged about this before yes?


Linus Larrabee: So, what do they say about me?
Sabrina: Oh, you know...
Linus Larrabee: No.
Sabrina: That you're the world's only living heart donor.
Linus Larrabee: Oh, that.
Sabrina: And how does this one go? He thinks that morals are paintings on walls and scruples are money in Russia.
Linus Larrabee: How droll.
Sabrina: And then there's my favorite...
Linus Larrabee: No, that's ok.

humphrey couldnt do those lines. also the first one had lame dialogue. one good thing about it. audrey singing louis prima's we have no bananas.

tbh, i don't think audrey was a great actress. not saying that she sucked, just that i don't like her primarily because of her acting skills. she definitely had her moments though, e.g. she was really good in roman holiday and the nun.

you made me want to watch the remake of sabrina. :)

you should watch the childrens hour. audrey and shirley maclaine. its awesomely done.

and yes you have to watch sabrina! for the love of harrison ford you do!

whats the nun about?

rchlll said...

ohh yes, i need to watch that!

i haven't seen the whole film (and it's called the nun's story, sorry), but it's about a young woman who enters a convent and her struggle to adapt to that way of life.
