MY LIFELONG DREAM – I WANT TO BE A MOVIE CRITIC!!

I LOVE MOVIES!!  It’s my escape!  The 1.5 hours I spend in the movie theater takes me to other places, sometimes makes me laugh, sometimes cry…but removes me from my personal world for a short time and puts me into someone elses!  I’ll tell you a secret…but..don’t tell anyone!!  After showing property all day, and sometimes arriving home late, it’s nice to clear my mind…so..I want to escape to a movie, and there’s no time for dinner.  So, we stop at Publix, pick up a sandwich and sneak it into the movies.  We buy a soda and we eat while enjoying the movie!!  It’s fun…obviously it doesn’t take a lot to excite me!  Then..my mind is clear to come home and work again!!

Paul and I do our darnest to see all the movies that come out!  Even those where we must read subtitles.   But..I have to admit I don’t like the scary ones.  

Before we go to see a movie, Paul always reads what the critics say.  How is it that I never agree with these critics??  I like to think that I’m an average person…most people I speak with enjoy the same movies I do….so..where do these critics get their ideas?

To fulfill one of the things on my bucket list, I’m going to add my opinion of each movie I see in the future on my blog.

THE DILEMMA (1-16-11) – Did you ever think about what you would do if you saw your best friend’s spouse cheating?   Actually, you think you know what you’d do…but think about it…and the repercussions.  Then…go see this adorable movie.  Vince Vaughn and Kevin James play wonderful parts.  It’s very enjoyable and when you walk out….I’ll guarantee a conversation about it with your movie partner. 

THE TOURIST (12-10-10) – Okay…I loved it!!  Talk about someone who is gorgeous!  Anjolina Jolie is absolutely stunning in this movie.  Johnny Depp…pretty cute himself!  It’s a pretty neat movie….has a surprise ending that I won’t tell…definitely worth the trip to the movie to see.

FAIR GAME – This was the story of Valerie Plame Wilson….the CIA agent whose name was leaked.  I should have known if Sean Penn was in it, it’d be an anti-government movie.  I have no idea whose version of the story it was, or, if it was the actual way it all happened, but, the acting was great and the story was pretty good…just not sure if it’s the correct story!!

FASTER  – THE ROCK IS ALWAYS ENTERTAINING!!  HE’S GOT A CUTE PERSONALITY AND IT COMES THROUGH IN THIS MOVIE.  THE MOVIE WAS OKAY.  NOT ON MY TOP LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS.

MORNING GLORY – What a cute movie that was!  It was easy to watch.   Light.  And the characters were adorable.  It’s nice to feel uplifted after seeing a movie.

HEREAFTER – not bad.  Matt Damon was good, but, didn’t walk out of there feeling uplifted…actually felt confused!

SECRETARIAT – I LOVED THIS MOVIE!!  Diane Lane was great….actually everyone was.   John Malkovich played such a great part.   Even though I knew the story before entering the theater…I found my adrenaline pumping during the races.  Everyone walked out of the theater with a smile.

RED- Easy to watch…a little bloody…but..the characters were cute and fun!  Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman are always entertaining.  Helen Mirren played someone that I thought was out of character for her, but, really cute!!  It wasn’t an 8 or 9 on the scale, but, I enjoyed it.

MEGAMINDS in 3D tonight.  I honestly don’t know what the critics who say it’s as good or better than Shrek are thinking.  The animation, of course, was wonderful…the 3D fun as always, but, the story, although somewhat entertaining, was not funny or as clever as Shrek.  This would not be one I’d say “go see”!  

During this week we have intentions of seeing Unstoppable.  Science fiction movies aren’t our thing so we won’t be seeing Skyline. 

I’ll let you know my thoughts….
