on saturday peter and i went to see the simpsons movie(it opened in taiwan on friday). the theater was pretty empty. i’m not sure if that’s because of the rainy weather we’ve been having or just a sign that the simpsons aren’t that popular here(or perhaps the version in mandarin is more popular). peter thought it was so-so. i enjoyed it, but wasn’t in love with it. milhouse looked rather odd. more like an adult than a kid. i was surprised that alf clausen didn’t do the music for the movie. especially since he’d done such a stellar job on the series. before the film they showed a trailer for a new taiwanese lesbian film – i saw a beast(you can see the trailer with english subtitles if you click on the third tab once you hit enter and then select the bottom movie). i’m not sure what to make of it, but i’m a little curious. peter said it looked like a student film. but that’s not neccesarily a bad thing in my book.
