    I remember being disappointed the first time I saw Lost in Translation.

    I blame the trailer, which made it look like a quirky romp through Tokyo, with Bill Murray telling Scarlett Johansson " I'm trying to organize a prison break. We have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out?" Intercut with shots of them running, all set to Elvis Costello's "(What's So Funny 'Bout)โ€ฆ

    Thatโ€™s right bitches, I see your 2.5 and 3 star reviews of this movie. Doesnโ€™t change the fact that this is my SECOND FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME. And why? Let me tell you why.ย

And it doesnโ€™t get more tough guy than Denzel. I actually prefer him to Liam, even. Was I the only one who got kilig upon realizing that he and Dakota were having a Man on Fire reunion? No? Just me?ย

    Doesnโ€™t feel like a Hal Ashby film, nor does it feel like a Robert Towne film. It doesnโ€™t even feel like a Jack Nicholson film, but Iโ€™m happy all these three men got together to make something simple and sweet and very much a movie made by young people.ย
