Romance & Cigarettes 2005 Better with ever viewing! 7.5 out of 10 Hubby and I watched this last night. We've seen it a couple of times before and I always liked it but last night I realized why we watched this one more than once! Christopher Walken alone is reason enough! The scream before he sings Delilah just makes me laugh so much! Was he acting? I get the feeling not much! More going with the flow! I just love him! Kate Winslet was never better and I don't think could top this performance. Steve Buscemi is too funny... I could go on and on but I won't. I don't think there are too many modern musicals that are as good as this! The Coen Brothers and John Turturro... Could you really go wrong there? I think not! I bet next time I watch this I will love it even more!
Safety Not Guaranteed Feel Good I Like it! 6.5 out of 10 Not the best of story lines to get to the story, the magazine thing was weird to me. Once we got passed that it was great! The acting was good the characters had chemistry and I wanted to see what was going to happen next so that's good. Loved the end, what can I say! :~) Would probably watch it again if it was on late night and I wanted a feel good movie.
Her (2013) Amazing 9 out of 10 Joaquin Phoenix was, as usual just superb. The perfect actor for this almost solitary on screen performance. Very different original movie, which I love! I can't think of anything else like it. I think this movie is a reminder we should never forget our human relationships and contact with each other is what really makes the world go around. With so much technology available and everything we need at our finger tips we have the potential to isolate ourselves from the real world and forget what's out there beyond our laptops, pc's and tablets... beauty, love, experience, and life worth living and engaging. Being a part of this world and taking part in the world is something that can bypass us without our realizing it. I can't wait to see this again I feel like there is even more to get from this movie on a second viewing. In the mean time I'm going to turn off my computer and live!!!!
