The Movies

Getting movie recommendations has always been tricky since I like a wide variety of films and most are not popular. This year The Hangover was widely popular unfortunately it was not funny.

Let me just list them and you can decide for yourself:

The Hangover (Unrated Two-Disc Special Edition)  - not funny but clever, I kept waiting for the killer punchline but it was just too light on the jokes heavy on the visual aids.

Gran Turino - Great film although very depressing. Although the old man and young boy are the main focus the brilliance comes from the young sister.

Marley & Me - While I'm never fully convinced of the love between the main characters the love for the dog was undeniable.

Revolutionary Road - Hard to watch life behind the curtains of a seemingly perfect family. Well acted and again depressing.

Orz Boys - A Taiwanese film about boys growing up without caring parents. It is cut between cartoons and real life. It is a story told in an odd way and does not translate well so it may give some people a headache.

Die Hard - A freakin' Christmas classic. Wholly uplifting.

  1. I know what you mean about movie recommendations. Most of the movies that my husband and his friends like are tolerable, but I wouldn't rave about them. I end up watching movies I wouldn't have picked myself just to be sociable.
