Kinky Boots

Yes, this is my second post today and it is only minutes after my last post, but i have nothing to do at work and i want to keep everything separate.
So, "Kinky Boots" is great. It turns out to be based on a true story about a shoe maker in England that starts making shoes for drag queens. Of course the movie embellishes the story with love stories and prejudices on drag queens.
The actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor, who played the drag queen did a brilliant job of it and showed how hard it is to be accepted for who you are.
The movie also shows how much more open England is compared to America yet again.
So go rent this movie for it is very good.

The Kingdom and the Elves of the Reaches

I just listened to the series "The Kingdom and the Elves of the Reaches" There are four books in this series with this name and then they continue with four more books with the name of "In the Service of Dragons" Since the second group of four are not available yet to put on my ipod to listen to by my library i have only read the first four.

My opinion of these books are slightly mixed. It is an interesting tale and i do want to keep reading but for a book made for the reading level of ages 9-12 it seemed really complicated. (Yes, I read children's book's sometimes) I am way past 12 and i would sometimes get confused on what was happening from one moment to the next. I got the gist of what happened but i still feel like i missed some minor things that happened in the book. It might of been because i listened to the books instead of reading them but i do not believe so.

I did like the story though and would recommend people to try them out if they have nothing else to read.

Lie with Me

A truly interesting Movie. At first i thought i had rented a soft core porn movie and in a way it almost is but it is trying to tell a story about the way sex has had an effect on younger generations. Young people( early 20's to mid 20's i am thinking) seem to want only sex with others and not commitment because that just leads to divorce. Yet these two dysfunctional people realized that in the end that what they felt for each other was not just lust but love.
Basically it is an interesting movie but maybe only something to watch when you have nothing else to do that day. Definitely not a kid friendly movie.
