Does it give away my age or my social standing that these thoughts are always based on something that’s so last week? You only see me talk about movies after they’re on video or have hit the cheap theaters. Maybe I’ll start a trend of people not recognizing pop culture until it’s old hat.
Tonight I watched Josie and the Pussycats. It’s a great movie. It’s got an addictive soundtrack featuring Kay Hanley, former member of Letters to Cleo. The whole movie is a spoof on pop culture and the movie industry. It’s great until you realize that Universal Pictures probably got paid for every single goof ball product placement in the movie. That’s the ultimate joke. Salon.com had a great review, so I won’t waste my breath. But despite the mixed messages of global domination, it’s a fun movie.
