commenting is back!

well what do you know.; just when i thought we weren't going to see them for a while. oh well, i'm just glad tohse errors are gone. i finally actually saw a good movie for a change. saw Boys Don't Cry with Hilary Swank. the plot summary on IMDB:

Based on actual events. Brandon Teena is the popular new guy in a tiny Nebraska town. He hangs out with the guys, drinking, cussing, and bumper surfing, and he charms the young women, who've never met a more sensitive and considerate young man. Life is good for Brandon, now that he's one of the guys and dating hometown beauty Lana. However, he's forgotten to mention one important detail. It's not that he's wanted in another town for GTA and other assorted crimes, but that Brandon Teena is actually a woman named Teena Brandon. When Brandon's best friends make this discovery, his life eventually is ripped apart by betrayal, humiliation, rape, and murder.

just trying to imagine how much courage and guts it took for her to go against the world that probably was going to lynch her, you can't help but to root for the little guy. the main character is played by Hilary Swank who won the best femal actress that year. by no doubt she deserved it. it was weird seeing someone i knew to be an attractive female successfully play the character. and as much as i wouldn't have minded seeing her nude in any other movies, it wasn't something i wanted to see in this movie. it was quite disturbing. but all in all, this movie is one of the best dramas i've seen in a while.

another funny thing is that in the movie, when she dresses up like a boy, she looks a lot like the skinny nerdy guy in the movie Road Trip who hooks up with the big black girl. well, its funny cause one of the last movies that Hilary Swank filmed was The Core, and the nerdy guy was in that movie too. I wonder if anyone else made the connection.
