After my bad movie experience with The Producers, I was somewhat skeptical of trusting the movie selections of my friends, even after their profuse apologies. The Producers was that bad. So, imagine my hesitation when Kathryn suggested another movie, Memoirs of a Geisha. I wasn't doing anything else last night, so I agreed to go.
I'm glad I went. A very good movie, with very beautiful colors, costumes and sets. I have a personal love for all things Japanese...so much that I spent a year learning the language (most of which I have forgotten due to non-use). Sure, I can understand a word here and there, but not enough to carry on a conversation. However, in the event of an emergency, I am able to ask you what you like to eat, and if you like to drive a car.
In conclusion, Memoirs of a Geisha gets two thumbs up and a flaming onion volcano for being so good. I have also deemed it DVD worthy for my collection. I recommend that everyone should see this movie.
It makes up for the horrible, horrible thing that was The Producers.
