Here's a list of movies I have seen recently. and my opinions.
SEE: Temple Grandin
This movie is fantastic. It is based on a true story of an autistic woman who is an animal behaviorist that has a big hand in helping the cattle industry, as well as her issues of being autistic during a time when know one really understood it. It is such an interesting film and so insightful in trying to understand autism. The movie was well made and Claire Danes acting is superb. Not your typical film, but give it a chance and I think you'll like it.
DON'T SEE: Unknown
If you were like me and thinking this recently released film would be almost like the sequel to Taken, it's most definitely not. Very anti-climactic and Liam Neeson is half the man he was in Taken. The whole movie I felt like I was waiting for it to get good and exciting.. and then it ended and I was still waiting. And it didn't help that the acting was that great either. I'd say save your $9 and wait 'til the dollar theater or redbox.
Harold and I watched this a month or so ago but it is a fantastic movie. Based on the musical Evita by Andrew Lloyd Webber. If there is one thing you should know about me is that I love Mr. Webber and his musical talents- Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is an absolute favorite of mine. So it came to no surprise that I would enjoy another one of his works. Plus it is based on the true story of Evita which is very interesting. A poor girl that makes her way to the top of the social class and ends up as wife to Argentina's president. The people love her and she does a lot to help them. Great music, great story, and an overall great film. It's a true musical so there is really hardly any talking at all- everything is sung. Oh and did I mention MADONNA is Evita. She does a great job.
That's all folks.
Next on the list to see: Never Say Never. We'll see if I catch the fever.
