I honestly have not seen that many movies in the last few months, in theaters or rentals. I’m going to try a couple of quick reviews and maybe let you know what I’d like to see.
Loud adventure fantasy movies do not motivate me, so I’ll be skipping Iron Man 2, and Prince of Persia. I wait for Twilight movies on rental because I’m sorry TF, the stories and films are just not that deep or well done.
I do want to see Sex in the City 2, go ahead, scold me for pure unadulterated fluff love. I live vicariously through Carrie, honestly I’d almost give my right arm for that closet!! I’d also like to see the new Toy Story 3 movie this summer, I love Buzz and Woody!
Ok, so here’s what little I have seen.
Kevin and I saw Letters to Juliet last week, and honestly I knew very little about a place in Verona Italy where people leave letters at Juliet’s house about their love lives. What a beautiful history. The movie was sweet, though predictable in some ways. I still liked it, but I like sappy love stories. My rating a 3 out of 5 stars.
We saw this movie just after or before Valentine’s Day, it’s available on DVD now. Cute movie about love, love of a child, love of family, long time love, new love, false love, it’s got it all in a series of vignettes and lives that cross and mingle. I enjoyed it and thought it was so sweet. My rating, a 4 out of 5.
We rented some movies too, and I always try to see Oscar nominated films, but this was by far my favorite.
First off, looking at George Clooney is just a pleasure, I love a man who ages with such grace. He is so good at that aloof man/lover role. I was iffy about this film, so often good reviews on quirky movies leave me unhappy, but this one had good stuff. I really liked it. My rating, a 4 out of 5.
Sadly that is all the good movies I’ve seen. I keep renting movies via Netflix but I guess other things have been in the way.
What has your favorite movie of Spring been? What do you plan on seeing this summer?
