Things I Should Like But Don’t: Part 2

Earlier this month I posted the first installment in a series I like to call “Things I Should Like But Don’t.”  That post can be found here if you’re interested.

Today I’m going to share yet another thing I should like but just … Don’t.

I love Charlie Kaufman.  Love him.  I will watch anything as long as his name is attached to the project.

Adaptation.?  Awesome.

Synecdoche, New York?  Wonderful.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?  One of the most heartbreakingly beautiful films I’ve ever seen.

Being John Malkovich?  One of my favorite movies of all time.

Human Nature?  Sucked.

I wanted to love this movie.  I really did.  I mean, Charlie Kaufman wrote it and Michel Gondry directed it.  (This is the same team that produced the amazing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.)  The plot sounded interesting (could I expect any less from Charlie Kaufman?), and I expected a blend of dark humor, the absurd, and an overall unique viewing experience.

I saw this movie several years ago, so it’s not really fresh in my mind.  I will say, though, that I remember being bored as I watched it.  I also remember wanting to shut it off several times but thinking, “No … It will get better.”

It never got better.

Sorry, Charlie Kaufman.  Don’t worry … I still love you.
