It was a good week for movie watching around these parts!
This was the worst of the four by far. Bandslam is a cute movie for teenagers, but has too much schlock for the rest of us. I mean her name is SA5M and the 5 is silent??? That's just strange. I really liked Lisa Kudrow though. She plays overbearing mother in the best way possible. I miss her as Phoebe in Friends.
I LOVED this film. Loved, loved, loved! This is the best portrayal of a man with Asperger's syndrome that I've seen in film. Hugh Dancy doesn't play the role over the top, he just is. It also doesn't have the traditional ending, which is special in and of itself. This will definitely require a re-watch.
Before I watched this, I expected it to be bad. Really bad. However, my love of Amanda Seyfried won over, and I had to make a viewing. To my surprise, I ended up enjoying it. It is formulaic, but has a lot of heart. It shouldn't win any awards, but if you want to watch a love story in the middle of the afternoon - I recommend.
My favorite movie of the group. I had watched it before, but it was due time for me to watch it again. Some would call this movie depressing, but I just view it as a glimpse into some very sensitive, wonderful, and troubled women. Perhaps I see myself in the film. It always makes me remember just how much I need to read Mrs Dalloway.
Lovely blog readers! Please tell me of the interesting things that you've been watching recently!!
