Date night WIN or FAIL? You decide…
Your missus wants to go to a movie, so you kindly offer to take her to some chick flick-looking drama about a talented ballerina. She’s happy, you’re happy, birds are chirping, all is well with the world etc. The fact that you offered to take her to a ballet movie seems lost on her.
But alas, this ain’t no “Center Stage” or “Step Up” or “Honey” or ummm… okay, I’m kinda out of dance movies here. Oh, or “Billy Elliot” – that’s another one. Yeah, it’s not like that one either.
It turns out that Black Swan is more of a psychological thriller than a happy dance flick. Directed by Darren Aronofsky of ‘Requiem for a dream’ and ‘The Wrestler’ fame, this one looks kinda creepy… take a look:
Yeah, not so sure you’ll have any brownie points left after that movie. Unless you earn brownie points for going to crap-yourself scary thrillers – in which case you’ve got bigger problems to worry about.
And lads: if I lost you at ballerina and you moved off to other posts, well here’s something just for you: Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman locking lips in the movie. Coz I had to drag this post into the gutter, didn’t I?
You’re welcome. Have I got your attention now?
