Its another Monday on the Monday Movie Meme. and this week its the turn of Nicole over at The Madlab Post This week’s topic is “What’s For Dinner?“
Share on your blog movies that feature crazy cooks. The characters in these films may be able to whip up a good feast but they are either wackos in one way or another…or they do wacky things.
I found this a tough subject to write about in all honesty and I could only come up two efforts. It seems that this isn’t a huge subject for film makers in Hollywood.
First up is Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street. Lets face it, killing people in a barber’s shop and then rigging the chair to have them drop below to be chopped up and made into meat pies is pretty way out there. I remember studying the story in English at school but had never seen a film version until the 2007 effort from Tim Burton starring Johnny Depp in the lead role. It was ok, but nothing to write home about for me personally.
Secondly I will leave you with a scene from a movie that fits the topic of discussion this week. From the award winning movie Fatal Attraction, Glenn Close showed that a woman scorned really shouldn’t be messed with or suffer the consequences. In this instance, cute, fluffy, boiled consequences.
So there you are folks, that just proves that cooking aint my strong point. Enjoy reading all the blog entries and I’ll see you here next week.
