• Explanations and Reactions

    So I haven’t posted in….uh forever. I’m still fairly young, so a few months can still be forever. Shut up! Anyway… :-p …I haven’t posted lately because I’m contributing to another blog with much more potential than my own (and looking for more contributors if you’re interested). I probably shouldn’t, but I worry that I’ll run out of ideas to offer the other blog so I haven’t been posting anything new here.

    However, my friend has requested that I review “Fiddler on the Roof” for her and another friend wanted to know how I liked it–and since I’ve been making him do play-by-plays for me of movies he hasn’t seen before–I figured I’d make a post of my reactions to FotR. Here goes:

    1. Things that would be shakier: playing hacky sack, holding a twirling competition
    2. No girl should aspire to become a matchmaker because you will become old and ugly (another example: Mulan’s matchmaker)
    3. I will always associate the matchmaker song with Mrs. Doubtfire
    4. If all the young women are wed to old men what do the young men get?
    5. Rich men, fat wives–that’s how it should be! then we can all aspire to have a body type highly attainable these days
    6. Yay for “If I WERE rich man” (subjunctive! hooray for correct usage!)
    7. He’s going to strain his back dancing like that
    8. I hope none of that spit got in the milk
    9. Yay I’m glad this movie is making me laugh
    10. Well I appreciate that he got angry about the father calling her a cow
    11. But he’s too old for her!
    12. I’m so glad I got to choose my own husband
    13. While all these men are out dancing with each other what are the women doing?
    14. I never understood the historical hatred toward Jews
    15. Woah he got off his roof!
    16. Oh thank goodness!!!!
    17. How many hands does this guy have?
    18. YAY!!
    19. And that’s why women should carry weapons
    20. Ha ha! I saw a parody of this on “The Nanny” (dream sequence)
    21. So the more facial hair you have…the better man you are?
    22. That looks safe–paper cups for wax protection anyone?
    23. Hey! I’ve heard this song before
    24. Lol that older lady looks like a cabbage patch doll!!
    25. Even at a wedding the men and women are kept apart?
    26. Show offs
    27. Ah so the couple registered at Bed Bath and Beyond
    28. Uh oh–oh good! people who actually listen to their religious leaders–or not
    29. Yay he said what I was thinking! Dance with your wives!
    30. Boogie on down rabbi!
    31. That darn horse should have never whinnied
    32. OH NO! but why? I don’t understand…why do people do this to each other?
    33. Intermission! Those who require it please make use of the facilities
    34. Lol “they are so happy they don’t know how miserable they are”
    35. Making your own decisions–how modern
    36. There are all those hands again
    37. Aww he’s a good dad
    38. HA HA–I bet Adam was afraid of Eve too that’s why he ate the apple
    39. Poor guy, it’s hard to be vulnerable
    40. Uh oh clean shaven guys!
    41. See? I told you! Uh oh!
    42. Busy body ol’ coot
    43. The Gulag?
    44. Women are so brave
    45. The train sounds a bit like a Willie Wonka machine
    46. Yay for good news! woah…that’s a lot of people ..OH *whew*
    47. I wonder what they’d think of mine
    48. Oh so that’s what it takes to become a person?
    49. Hey! that’s nearly the same lines from “Ever After” (or vice versa)
    50. Why is he always stubborn in the beginning? you’re gonna cave!
    51. Lol love the wife
    52. It’s hard to take a man seriously when he’s acting all of 2.5 years old
    53. What? priest?
    54. Wow look at that beard! he must be a great man!
    55. Uh oh …now that’s just dumb. I’ll chalk it up to you being upset
    56. He’s got two more daughters..guess that means more heartache. no wonder people of the past only ever wanted sons
    57. Hey now. don’t be a jerk.
    58. Lol I hope he doesn’t really do this part aloud..lol all those hands are showing up again
    59. I guess the butcher got that last hand
    60. What? young matches for young matches?? how extraordinary
    61. No!
    62. What do they have a deal with Uhaul? where will they go?
    63. Well that sucks
    64. Lol maybe that IS why
    65. Man this sucks
    66. That’s a long trip
    67. Ha ha! silly woman
    68. Wow but how will they get there?
    69. Poor cows
    70. Come on!! when will you see her again?
    71. Yay!
    72. LOL my fraidy cat was talking to the baby!
    73. Again, sucks.
    74. Couldn’t wait for spring??
    75. Poor guy..guess he couldn’t take his roof with him
    76. Good movie! very witty

    So there you have it! My reaction to “Fiddler on the Roof”. Very well done! I’m so glad that it’s not one of those movies that EVERYONE thinks is so wonderful and I don’t get the big deal. (Examples: “Citizen Kane” and “Pulp Fiction”)

    I don’t know when I’ll post here again, but you can check out other posts at the link up at the top.
