I saw High Fidelity last night, and as I was leaving the theater, I was wondering, how I can love John Cusack so much in the same roles? Tom Hanks plays the same roles film after film and I can barely stomach it, yet Cusack returns again and again, and I pony up the money, again and again. I think it's because Hanks is too old for me, he's too old for me to have a romantic interest in, and he's too old to feel like an older brother. But not John Cusack. He's like an older brother, a best friend, maybe even someone I had a crush on at one point. And it all started such a long time ago, way back with The Sure Thing.
The bad thing about going to the movies last night: it was the second night in a row I had popcorn for dinner.
