We watched Monster (imdb | rotten tomatoes | buy it) last night. You know, a year ago, if you’d told me there was a movie that featured many, many instances of Charlize Theron making out with Christina Ricci, I’d likely have wet myself. But after watching it…not so hot. Not so hot at all, actually.
The movie…wasn’t great. It was good, maybe even very good. But Charlize Theron was just so unbelievably, convincingly…I don’t know, just NOT Charlize Theron as any of us have known her. And for that, she deserved an Oscar.
