Its SAG awards time again, so I have been viewing a lot of movies lately. Here's the rundown:
The Hobbit--very enjoyable…we are big fans of all of these movies…fun to see our girl from LOST as an elf. (not one of my sag ones, just saw it recently)
Saving Mr. Banks--Emma Thompason! what stamina! so proud of myself for taking it all in and remaining neutral, I have come a long way! Loved the actors that made up the writing team.
Enough Said- FLICK with STICKS! Julia Louis Dreyfuss doesn't change that much…knowing J. Gandolfini passed shortly after this, made me look at him as if he was a bit sick…he did seem a bit labored and like he could keel over--this was distracting for me. I also found it fairly predictable, but it was fun. Loved her knitted yellow blanket maybe most of all.
Philomena-had no idea what this was about, was not disappointed. you need to go see this.
Gravity-did not know what to expect. So glad I did not see this in the theatre…so interesting…how did they make this film?
Catching Fire-loved it. love the books…Stanley Tucci. (also not one of my sag ones)
The Butler-thought I wouldn't like oprah, but she ended up not bothering me. Had a harder time believing Rickman as Reagan than Williams as (who did he play?) the other president. In general I enjoyed the cameos, could have done without Mariah…interesting story.
Blue Jasmine-Woody Allen…I was so tired at the end of this…you can skip it unless you want to see Cate Blanchett do good work.
Just have to finish Captain Phillips and then I will finally vote.
So many movies! All so different! I love when it is cold out and I get discs in the mail and emails with codes and free tickets! It has been a fun few weeks.
