How I feel about it all: hopefulhopeful
Soundtrack: Johnny Cash - San Quentin
I'm going to see Walk the Line in a little while. I've been looking forward to it, but I'm also hoping very much I won't be disappointed. Because no matter how good Joaquin Phoenix is at acting like he's Johnny Cash, I (virtually) know and love Johnny so much it's gonna be hard to suspend it all and actually accept that this is him, y'know?

Of course, I may be thrilled and amazed. The reviews are good, so we shall see.

ETA: Very, very good. Joaquin Phoenix doesn't look like Johnny, but he does a good job of sounding like him. I was also very impressed with Kash's girlfriend Reese Witherspoon, who I've always known was better than the roles she's taken (Something like I knew Ewan was better than his Phantom Menace role). In this one she's left Sweet Home Alabama and its ilk in the proverbial dust. Not to mention that she had a baby how long ago and she looks like THAT in a slinky dress?

Also yay for calf-length floral twirly chintz skirts. I want one. Or seven.

Glad you saw the movie. I loved it. Joaquin Phoenix is one of the best out there, no question. I've championed him for a long time. I agree also about Reese Witherspoon. She was much better than I'd anticipated. And of course what more can you say about Johnny & June?

It's funny. For the past month Jim has been serenading me with the opening lines to "Jackson". One day I was doing dishes and he came up behind me, grabbed me, twirled me around & started daning with me while singing, "We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout...". I've been calling him "J.R." ever since (his real initials)
