After watching my first lunar eclipse tonight from the roof of my apartment building, I went with Nick Fitzer and his roommate Nick something-or-other to watch Juno. Many friends, including Plato and Jordan, told me that Juno was an excellent movie and so I have been anxious to see it for some time.
Juno was a pretty great movie. It was my kind of romance; funny, satirical, gritty and poignant. Ellen Page was excellent as the character Juno, though I kept getting the impression that she was not five feet tall. Maybe Michael Cera is just an NBA player. I was not too impressed with Michael Cera’s acting performance, I think that Ellen Page definitely carried him.
Since I saw Juno with those guys, I made some pretty crude jokes on the way out. I think that it was really a pretty movie though.
Below is the hit song “Anyone Else But You” from Juno as sung by Michael Cera and Ellen Page. “Anyone Else But You” is not a technically amazing song, but something about it strikes a chord in me and apparently a lot of other people. Check it out.
