Mikey Likes It!

February 25th, 2008 by · 18 Comments

“Just what do you like?” is a question I get a lot. Given my choice of careers it’s an entirely reasonable question. The fact that people ask it in a tone suggesting they’d like to help themselves to a handful of my shirt front while asking it is also not unexpected. More often than not I can’t come up with an answer, not because I don’t like a lot of movies, mind you. It’s just my natural inability to recall much of anything.

But last night’s Academy Awards “Best Song” result reminded me, and I’m delighted to report that I really quite liked the movie Once. I liked it so much, in fact, that I watched it twice, on consecutive nights. The music is charming without being cloying; the performances were winning; the direction steady and effective. I really, really liked it.

Liked it, in the past tense, that is. Why the change of heart? This.

This is not fan created – this is directly from the official website.

Pants ain’t happy either.
