Movie Reviews

In keeping with my, things to do to keep myself busy and from missing my precious Angel while she is gone, list, I have been watching and going to the movies.  Here are a few that I have seen recently.  

The Iron Lady - Meryl Streep's performance was awesome however, I was confused with the constant back-and-forth flash backs, her dead husband, her dementia, and what story was really being conveyed about her?  One good thing was that I had to go back and freshen up on my history to figure out what was actually going on at the time.   

Tinker Tailor Solider Spy - is a mouthful to say and a bit much to watch.  I felt like I watching an old version of The Matrix not knowing what in the world was going on!   I needed a manual to follow this movie.  I don't know what happened because I didn’t finish it.
Out Loud and Incredibly Close – was good.  I thought it was going to be more about September 11th than it was.  It is really about the relationship this boy has with his parents.  The father that he lost and the mother he is left with.  It’s a little long, but in the end not what you are expecting.

The Descendants - was actually really good, and I enjoyed it immensely.  After watching it I thought, what would I do if I were in his shoes?  I can tell you this I would have sold that property as I think most people not in a movie would have done. 

The Avengers – not really my choice and I bet you all can guess what happens.  Here’s a clue….. the good guys defeat the bad guys and win!  I know it’s hard to believe because that storyline has never been done before. 
Last night I went and saw Snow White and the Huntsman.  This movie was long and could have done without a few of the drawn out scenes in the forest.  Kristen Stewart played the same sweet, eye blinking, damsel in distress that was in all the Twilight movies.  Chris Hemsworth made the movie watchable (at least for me ;) as he aided the fierce Snow White to victory over the want-to-be fairest of them all, queen.  The one thing that I got out of this movie is that women will do anything to stay young and beautiful, even kill………

I have tried to stay away from sappy movies that would make me cry or sad but refuse to see any comedy with Sacha Baron Cohen.  I am looking forward to Rock of Ages and of course Magic Mike!
