OK, it's been a while! Time for some reviews. I'm leaving out plenty, I'm sure.....since I haven't posted in a while.
Crazy Heart - My favorite in a long, long time. Loved it so much, I insisted Blake saw it....this week......during my usual movie night. I know. I'm so giving.
He enjoyed it, too. Upon returning home, I asked him if he noticed Coco (Maggie Gyllenhaal) was in the movie. "Yeah, it haunted me the whole time." Nice.
***I'll let Blake comment on his opinion of my Tuesday Night at the movies routine. (it should be noted that he took my popcorn bowl in, too)
I totally recommend this movie for music lovers. Jeff Bridges plays and sings all of it himself. Fantastic.
The Blind Side - Lots of hype for this one and I it lived up to it. A true story and it was beautifully played out on screen. Really enjoyed Sandra Bullock, too.
Dear John - Very much a Nicholas Sparks story. I read many of his books after falling in love with The Notebook years ago. Not exactly my taste anymore. But, you'll love it if you love him.
It's Complicated - Really enjoyed this one. I do believe I could watch Meryl Streep do just about anything......she's so wonderful.....and the men were great, too.
Up in the Air - Very smart movie. George Clooney can do no wrong in my opinion.
Valentine's Day - Half way through I thought I was going to agree with the reviews....and I still do in some respects.....but it was fun overall. Not ground breaking.....but a good date movie. (To which, I went alone, of course.) Be sure to stay until the end and watch the credits for a nod to Pretty Woman, a la Julia Roberts. Cute.
When In Rome - Pass. She's precious. Weak movie.
Fantastic Mr. Fox - Cannot say enough good about this movie. Totally weird. Not for everyone. If you have a kooky sense of humor like me, you'll absolutely adore it.
Trailer.......if you don't get this......you won't get the movie.
The Men Who Stare At Goats - Another movie not for everyone. Enjoyed it.
Cannot wait for Shutter Island. Maybe tonight!
What am I missing? Any must-sees?
