One of those moments


Do you ever have one of those moments? You're watching a tv show or a movie and someone looks slightly familiar and you think about it for a few seconds or few minutes and then you scream "Oh my gosh I know that person, they are from so and so!" and then you rush over to your computer as soon as you can to confirm it. 

Well I just had one of those moments at Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, which by the way was awesome! There are several bands in this movie and the band, Bishop Allen's lead singer looked strangely familiar. And then I figured it out, he's the star of this movie, Mutual Appreciation. Totally random random low budget movie. Anyhow it was a cool movie too. 

It's always really random too. A few weeks ago when I was watching the movie Speed Racer one of the racers looked familiar and then I figured it out. He was one of the stars of the German movie, Run Lola Run. RANDOM! 

Anyway back to Nick and Norah. I loved the movie, just about the sweetest thing ever with a great soundtrack! I was hoping the book would be fresher in my mind since I just read it this past spring but not so much. I did recall a scene or two that I expected to see but never did. Must read book again ASAP.

Did you go see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, will you? Have you had one of those moments?

  1. We were watching Saving Private Ryan on TV last night and the guy who plays the wrong Ryan looked just like the captain of Serenity/Firefly. Imdb confirmed it was indeed him.

  2. I do that a LOT! What really drives me crazy is when I can't place them but I know I know them. Oh and I do it with voices too b/c I've watched so many animated movies over the years.
