Movies

I've seen a lot lately.  My thoughts:

American Hustle - Liked it.  Thought the character development wasn't as good as it should have been.  Loved Bradley Cooper.


Auguest: Osage County:  My favorite in a very long time.  Saw it twice!  Crazy dysfunctional family.  


Captain Phillips: Loved it.  Awesome stories behind the movie, too, beyond the actual true story.  IE: The 4 pirates (not working actors before this movie) auditioned as a group and were hired as such.  Also, the main pirate and Tom Hanks were not allowed to see each other prior to their meeting on screen to add to the suspense and shock.  Very well done.


Gravity:  Didn't love it, but see that it was done well.  Just not my type of movie.


Dallas Buyers Club:  Excellent, excellent, excellent.  Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto were fantastic.  Loved the story behind this movie, too......that it was denied for years and Matthew worked hard to make the movie happen.  


Lone Survivor: So, so good.  I cried in the first few minutes, as they showed the Navy Seals training and preparing.  Cried during and at the end, too.  Amazing story.


Her:  Didn't love it like everyone else.  Kind of lost interest mid-way.  Joaquin Phoenix was good.


Nebraska: Quirky, dark and unusual.  I enjoyed it.


The Secret Life of Walter Mitty:  Enjoyed it more than I thought I would.  Inspiring and fun!


The Wolf of Wall Street:  I read the book prior, so knew what to expect, but I still was shocked.  It's crazy, intense and entertaining....but not for everyone!


Now I'm all set for the Oscars, except for Philomena.  Can't find where it's playing right now....missed it in the regular theatre.....not at the dollar theatre yet.  Hopefully soon!

Ugh! I am so so so behind this year. And the one I really want to see out of all of those is Philomena.

Did you see Saving Mr. banks or Blue Jasmine?

You have seen a lot of movies! I loved Captain Phillips too- been a while since there was a movie that made me feel so much. I didn't know that about the actors, that is awesome!
