Words don’t really beginto describe how excited I am about Les Miserable coming out on Christmas Day. I am so excited to see another take on my favorite show, having seen it more than 10 times (a lot more), regardless of some weirdness about shooting and some crazy diets. Usually Christmas movies are a Jewish tradition, along with Chinese food while everyone else eats holiday delicacies, but I think I might have some competition for a good seat this year!
Like most girls I absolutely love Audrey Hepburn, but Breakfast at Tiffany’s is definitely not my favorite of her movies — Roman Holiday, now there’s a wonderful film. I love her clothes, the humor, the setting, I love it all! And this classic poster is perfection. Any one who says so-and-so is a modern day Audrey just doesn’t understand how unique and one-of-a-kind she was!
The Muppets are back?! While I love Jason Segel, and anything with Kermit and Gonzo is all right by me, I have some serious reservations about anything Muppets now that Jim Henson is out of the picture. Trepidations or not, I will definitely be seeing this and will report back with an in depth review.
I saw Black Swan last night and I have to say I left in a daze. I loved the suspense, psychological thriller aspect of the whole movie, and watching the plight of a true artist trying to get into character, but I’m not sure if it’s a movie you can really walk out of and say “I loved it!”. I would definitely recommend it to others (except the particularly squeamish type), mostly because I would be interested in their thoughts on what really happened and what it all meant.
I was feeling pretty lousy on the plane ride home this weekend so I decided to watch one of the only movies I hadn’t seen in the list available on the plane. I don’t know why I hadn’t even heard it before this weekend, but I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining the movie was, and that I could actually stomach a movie with both Katie Holmes and Josh Duhamel! If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it for a quite night on the couch with some popcorn!
I saw Harold and Maude a few years ago with my mom and wasn’t paying enough attention to really appreciate it. Not only is the soundtrack written by Cat Stevens, an all time favorite of mine, but the story is totally screwed up and incredibly entertaining.
I’m not going to go into a whole synopsis of the story (if you haven’t seen it you absolutely must!), but I am going to say that because it was so hot out on Sunday I got to spend a lazy day inside and watch the entire movie. It may be dark and sometimes pretty sick (and undoubtedly made in the 1970′s) but its a total delight to watch and one of the few movies that I could watch over and over again!
