RB and I went to see Changeling, which was omg long and sort of oddly paced, imo, and hella depressing. Angelina Jolie looks gorgeous in period costume, though, and her lipstick is FABulous. Jeffrey Donovan does an accent that I guess is meant to be Irish? but mostly comes off as, “Wtf accent is he doing?” But this movie reminded me that he does sort of resemble Guy Pearce, and wow, if this had been an LA Confidential type of noir instead of what it actually was, I probably would have enjoyed it more. As it was, I can’t say it was bad, but it was also really long and really depressing and not something that would have been my first choice. Oh well. Happy movie next time.
