today we bid a tearful goodbye to the first of what i hope will be several installments of queue de grâce. i want to say a most heartfelt thank you to my curator, miss chelsea george.
it probably wasn't the easiest thing in the world to put together a list of some of your favorite things and hand it off to someone knowing they might publicly rip it to shreds. i am glad she went to the time and trouble. i hope she feels like it was worthwhile. i certainly do. and, in addition to the other benefits of this viewing experience, anytime i need a laugh i can just picture a li'l chelsea doing her best rodney dangerfield impression. man, she loved that guy.
for posterity's sake, here's what i saw:
valley girl (1983)
soldier child (1998)
the count of monte cristo (2002)
center stage (2000)
how to be a serial killer (2008)
rover dangerfield (1991)
sweet home alabama (2002)
terminator 2: judgment day (1991)
la bamba (1987)
romy and michele's high school reunion (1997)
now and then (1995)
gentlemen prefer blondes (1953)
the land before time (1988)
the september issue (2009)
i ran out of time before i could get to these, but for chelsea i will keep them in the queue and watch them all, eventually:
clash of the titans (1981)
corrina, corrina (1994)
wristcutters: a love story (2006)
trailer park boys: the movie (2006)
if you are late to the party, you can go back to the beginning here and for more insight into the infernal workings of chelsea's mind please visit something terrible has happened. if you're a tumblr user you can follow her there. she craves minions to do her
if you would like to be my curator for a week some time please drop me a line and let me know. i plan on doing these on a semi-regular basis, a few times a year, anyway. cabby, caroline, jon, shen, summer and joe - i already have you guys on the list. anyone else who is interested i will add in order of when their request was received. thanks for following along.
