Show and Tell - Vol 5

My Show and Tell is fairly weak this week (lol). I've been sick most of the week with a migraine headache, so haven't been out and about much. However, before the evil headache monster got me The Hubs and I stole a few hours away from real life to go to the cinema. I've been going on and on for about two months wanting to see the new Fame when it came out. So on Saturday we decided to get our singing-dancing-acting-musical-instrument-playing fix and headed out to make the 45 minute drive to the nearest cinema (yes, 45 minutes for a movie - we live in a town that progress forgot).

We had planned to go out for a meal and spend the whole day out, but the migraine had already started its menacing path towards making me ill enough to wish I was dead and I was feeling a bit ~nughf~. Thus, we decided the movie alone was enough. The movie was good and there were a few excellent bits, but I have to admit I felt it was a bit lacking. I've seen the original Fame and I felt the characters were more developed in the original than the newer version. I was just left wanting more. It was kind of like eating one cookie or just one Pringle. I enjoyed it, but I wanted more. However, the scene in the lunchroom where they all break out and improvise was amazing! Very impressed with it.

See what the rest of the class are up to here.

I heard it wasn't so great. I was lucky enough to be young enough at the time -- to see the original as a teenager.

I guess I won't be going to see this one, but am looking forward to seeing Michael Moore's new film, he makes me laugh.

I don't think I'll bother with the new Fame either. It can't live up to the original.

Sorry about the migraine. They suck! (Thankfully I don't get them anymore.)

I will wait to rent it!

Oh, I LOVED the original Fame. I cried so hard when Nicole died.

Maybe I'll wait til this one comes out on video.

See? I, too, live in a place where progress forgot.

I don't know, the original was such a classic. I think it would be hard to see it all updated and changed.
