I had this whole, long, great post about the movies I’ve watched typed up – and then my browser stalled and I lost everything! Basically, I am now a very unstable anger-ball and will just be telling everyone to watch these three movies as they are awesome.
The Boys Are Back – Clive Owen is beautiful. Death is ugly and sad. Being a single dad to two boys is tough stuff – especially when you decide to resemble gypsies rather than proper civilized people. These kids will grow up to be the most well-adjusted adults EVER.
The Switch – I adore the quietness of Jason Bateman’s performance. Jennifer Aniston is a favorite. But the kid in this movie – Thomas Robinson – is so precious it literally hurts. Screw the critics.
Source Code – Jake Gyllenhaal (do I need to say anything more?). A movie as perplexing in nature as Inception, but better (this is obviously my opinion and could be born from the fact that I loathe Leonardo).
Finally, a movie I don’t recommend – 127 Hours. I know the story is super inspiring and all that – but the whole time you are just sitting there watching a guy stuck under a rock and waiting for the last 5 minutes of the movie where he cuts his arm off. Sorry James Franco – I couldn’t even muster up a picture.
