Martian Child


Hi!

Well I made a comment on someone's journal about the movie Martian Child (view trailer) and they had not heard of it & I thought I better make a post on it then. It has been advertising all summer in the theaters by me. I thought it was coming out this summer but the release date is Oct 26th! Ugh! It looks AWESOME!!!!


It is about a boy who lives in a box & John Cusack wants to adopt him. Some definite paranoid delusions going on here...although many a time I have thought a few people just may be Martians...family members included! HA! Though they probably think I am! HA! It also gets into issues of what is "NORMAL" behavior which I love! Like the scene with him throwing plates in the kitchen...reminds me of the commercial where the boy squirts his mom with the pop & she turns on the sink faucet on him...some people just don't get life you know! :-)  


Amanda Peet is in it, as well as John's sister Joan. It will definitely be a field trip for my psych students! It looks like a very lovely movie & I think John really has wonderful potential for more serious roles in the future! And you all know from my past postings how much I'm in love with him! HA! My oldest brother looks like a blonde version of him I think!

Well, I'll remind you when it gets closer to the release date because you know I will be going that day! HA!

Oh wait, I couldn't have seen that back in the 80's.  It's not released yet.  Boy am I stupid or what? LOL  I wonder what movie I'm thinking of then??

Yum, he's still looking good, isn't he?  I'll have to see this one, for the movie and for John Cusack.  I think tonight I'll have to break down and figure out how to use the DVD player all by myself (my daughter's away), and get my fix of him.
