Chasing Amy

If someone paid me for doing the research, I’d like to investigate factors that distinguish movies I like watching once and movies I like watching on a daily base. Sure, I’m exaggerating. Most interesting movies (the former kind) are still entertaining the second time around; also, most of my favourite movies lose a bit of their fascination after three weeks of non-stop watching. Still, they usually regain it after a short break and soon their lines make it into my vocabulary.

The latest addition to the latter group of movies is D.E.B.S. The movie has its flaws, no doubt about it. Some scenes are way too long, whereas others pass by much to quickly. I’d also have liked to see a grander introduction of the D.E.B.S. folks, for example a successful mission that shows their chemistry and strength. I could go on and on, but the truth is: I love this film! Of course, this has nothing to do with Jordana Brewster’s stunning beauty or Sara Foster’s skirt. I mean, there’s more to the movie than the visual aspect. The setting is hilarious and the story fresh. The look is cool and the music video moment before the finale is just soooo great. Mind you, I’ve never been a fan of Erasure. Thank you Angela Robinson. Two thumbs up!
