I can recommend two movies that might still be in theaters. Win-Win with Paul Giamatti is one of the best comedies I have ever seen. It ranks up there with Election as far as comedies go with really fleshed-out supporting characters and sharp dialogue. Plus, I cried a couple of times!
I can also recommend The Trip. It's a flimsy excuse for a movie, but I haven't laughed so hard in ages. My husband cried at this one, but it was from laughing so hard at two guys driving and doing Rob Roy imitations.
Shutter Island is great, also recommend Inception - pay attention during both of them!
I finally watched True Grit too, super good movie, poor Blackie though!!
Inception is awesome! I'll have to watch it again.
Yeah, the Blackie thing didn't make any sense to me. <spoilers- highlight to see!> Surely, it would have been quicker not to ride the poor horse to death and then have to stagger the rest of the way? Wouldn't make such good drama though!
"Buck" the documentary about Buck Branaman. It was personal for me, having gone to a couple of his clinics years ago . And it was just about as cathartic as when I was at my first colt starting with him many years ago.I had to drive two hours to the only theatre in Colorado showing it but it was well worth it.
I used to be a huge Woody Allen fan. Play it Again Sam, Annie Hall, Hannah and Her sisters--some of the best movies ever. But lately I just can't stand them. Even the ones that reviewers say are as good as the earlier movies, such as Match Point and Vicki Christina Barcelona, are excruciating to me. Maybe that's a bit much--I got through Match Point, but not Vicki Christina.
Transformers Dark of the Moon! I LOVE Shia Lebouf and Josh Duhamel; they are perfect in their roles. I shed a few tears during this movie. I did NOT want to see the first one, got pressured into it, and fell in love. Awesome franchise.
Had a movie weekend with my Mom Saturday and today. We saw Super 8 (fantastic!!!) and X-Men (also fantastic!!!). It really surprised me that my 70+ Mom really enjoyed X-Men. She had never seen any of the previous ones. Now she is determined to rent them on Net Flix.
