The Return

The Return

There is a reason why Michele shudders when I say that dreaded phrase “I’m going to go rent a movie.”, and it’s usually because I bring home something like The Return. Now its not a bad movie, but it’s in russian and its a slow cooker with a not so happy ending. She actually didn’t watch it, and that was probably for the best because that would have given her even more ammunition against my choice picks at Hollywood Video. Caralyne did watch it with me, and that was funny because you know, she couldn’t understand a WORD of it. She eventually said that she liked how they talked.

That night I actually rented two movies, the other movie is polish I think, so my favorite quote from Michele is “So do I have to show you where all the American movies are in the store!?”. I just have a different take on it. I figure, if a foreign movie shows up on a cookie cutter US video rental chain, then its probably better than most of the native movies sitting on the shelves. So for me, its always worth a try.
