Last night we went to see Juno with some friends.  I wasn’t expecting too much despite the hype but I was completely surprised – I LOVED the film.  In fact,  I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a film that much.  I’m not sure how to talk about why I enjoyed the film so much without spoiling it but let me just say that a film regarding adoption has the potential to leave me a train wreck emotionally.  As the film progressed I feared the ending would have this result but by the time the credits rolled I was smiling.  Ellen Page was fresh and charming as Juno and I hope this film is only the first of many for her.  Surprisingly enough I also found Jennifer Garner, an actress I don’t have any love for, extremely convincing as a woman desperate for a child.  There were points where I found looking at her eyes on screen incredibly uncomfortable – I could actually feel the desperation coming off of her.

  • About Me

    Hi! My name is Kimberly Horne and I have absolutely nothing interesting to say. Unfortunately for you I DO have an overpowering need to tinker with technology which is explains the presence of this journal. I mostly talk about games (video and tabletop), technology, tattoos, and my pets.

    If you're an Eclipse user you may find my Eclipse category more interesting.

    Similarly, if you're an Arduino nerd then maybe my projects might be of interest.

    Since I've discovered Twitter this journal has been neglected somewhat. If you really want to stalk me your best bet is to follow me on twitter.
