cinema weekend

This weekend, I saw four movies. That's a lot for me.
  • A Mighty Wind, which my fellah just bought for $2, used. I'd seen it before; far better on the second viewing, and if you know someone who could very well have had a starring role.
  • The Apostle, directed by and starring Robert Duvall. According to the commentary, this is the only movie to have been endorsed by both Howard Stern and Jerry Falwell. I thought it was incredible.
  • Ghandi, a biopic of huge proportions. A moving experience, if you have three hours and ten minutes to spare. Also Daniel Day-Lewis's big-screen debut.
  • Star Trek II, on the big screen at the Paramount. Also Kirstie Alley's big-screen debut.

The last entry leads us to the most important question of all, which I would place in poll format if I could figure out how to do that.

Who's the best Vulcan babe of them all?

  1. Kirstie Alley
  2. Kim Catrall
  3. Jolene Blalock

(This is in effort to up my male readership.) Give your answer in the comments.

Blalock never proved that she could act, so she's out. It's been at least a decade since I've seen the Star Trek movies, but I vaguely recall liking Alley better. Catrall wasn't as believable as a Vulcan (though that may be the writers' fault more than the actor's). So Kirstie Alley by a nose.

Oh—you meant the hottest actress! Never mind (in my best Emily Litella voice).

Sorry, can't relate! :-)

You can at least judge from an aesthetic standpoint, though, right? :) And does Catrall get any cred for her Sex and the City gig at all?

Ok, Alley gets my vote mainly because I remember her being believable. Catrall gets my vote because she went on to be in one of my favorite shows.

I guess I'd give Alley an edge. I liked this question!
