Because I have a laptop by the couch, I bring you observations made during a viewing of Mrs. Henderson Presents.

I miss the good old days when the entirety of a movie’s credits came at

the front of the picture and lasted perhaps two minutes.

Dame Judi Dench has eyes which will melt you in every way possible.

“Pre War.” You might as well capitalize it as we all know that it’s The War. A shame that it didn’t really end all wars.

“Delightful creatures” is a phrase underused in reference to humans. I wouldn’t mind being a delightful creature someday.

Ah. Christoper Guest. What a very pleasant surprise. However did they manage to make him seem so stuffy? A shame he doesn’t have a larger part in the movie. Then again, I think he might have overpowered it if he had.

How singularly foreign. To have the money to construct a silk tent in a park for the sole purpose of serving lunch in it.

An era when people smoked in the theatre. How… Well, how disturbing.

Bob Hoskins has funny ears. Not funny ha ha. Just funny different.

We are all such overwhelming prudes in America. That a movie which shows tasteful (and non-sexual) nudity should garner an R rating is absolutely absurd.
