Chicago

6 February 2003

We went and saw Chicago today at the Lido. If I haven’t mentioned the Lido before I should say it is the best cinema in Auckland. It has the best coffee/leg-room/ice-cream/movies/staff/etc. I highly commend it to everyone. Oddly enough, in this day and age, it doesn’t have a web site.

Anyway, back to the movie. It was very good and Lisa thinks that René Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones will get Oscars for their performances. I particularly liked Lucy Liu character—a nice performance, albeit somewhat short. But was it better than the stage show. Well, being able to do two scenes at the same time worked well for the movie; but I preferred the stage show—it was more electric.
