James, and James, and James, oh my
I just got back from a long trip, so the best part was obviously watching lots of movies on the planes to and fro. The theme I found was James. On the way to Europe they were showing Becoming Jane and I was once again reminded of my love of James McAvoy (see here for a reminder). He's romantic, a playboy who converts for the woman he loves, honorable, and plays against Anne Hathaway perfectly (even if she's not British, she's a good Jane Austen). Then on the way home, they were playing 27 Dresses and Enchanted which I'm sure you'll remember that I liked both. James Marsden was even more arresting this time in both roles. He's cute, sexy, with a grin that doesn't end, and can play a fairy tale prince more convincingly than you'd expect. Oh, and since I spent most of the flight telling people that in fact James Marsden's name was James Franco, I will pay homage to him as well - he's awesome in the Spiderman movies and hopefully will be in lots more fun movies. Oh well, I definitely appreciate the James' in my movie-viewing experiences. Any others I've forgotten, I bow to you too.
