Over the past week I have watched several movies. A couple worth viewing.
August Rush. This one is good for the entire family. A story about a young music prodigy. The musical experience alone is most enjoyable. Pretty sappy ending but a great feel good movie.
Gone Baby Gone. This one is not for the faint of heart. Extremely strong language. However, I found myself pondering the ultimate question the film raises over and over again.
I watched both on pay per view. They’re out on DVD now.
Any movies you recommend?
Hi Greg. I saw both of those movies and thought they were both very good as well. I rented a movie last week called “The Ultimate Gift”. This is another feel good movie that the entire family can watch.
Greg, I watched August Rush just last night while working out. Predictable and maybe a little schmaltzy, but I was deeply moved. I thought it was a great movie.
Check out “Dan in Real Life”–even better than the “romantic” part (which is sweet) is the “comedy” part, which depicts a large family that is actually healthy, loving, loyal and fun. I smiled all the way through.
Greg – Ya gotta see Juno. It’s at the Palace this weekend, as well as Movies 10, and should be out on DVD relatively soon.
Believe in Me – A girl’s basketball version or Hoosiers. A man looks forward to his dream job coaching boy’s basketball only to end up coaching girls.
The Prestige. It’s not new, but I caught it on one of the movie channels and it haunted me for weeks.
Just a few…”Lions for Lambs”, you have to love Robert Redford. “Kite Runner” and “Rendition”. All worth the watch.
