You know me - always trying to pass the time by finding new and interesting things to watch, listen to, and read :).
You Don't Know Jack:
This movie was spectacular, as all HBO movies are. The story of Jack Kevorkian is so polarized. I couldn't take my eyes off of Al Pacino, who played this revolutionary and/or murderer with immense wisdom and humanity. As someone who knows the failures of the health care system, I vote this movie is worth a watch. It makes for some very amazing quotes.
I expected a whole lot of nothing out of this movie, as it looked like something that should have been made for television. It was surprisingly a little better than I thought it would be! It reminds me very much of how I felt post-college-graduation, and I was happy to see the development of wisdom throughout the evolution of Alexis Bledel's character.
Gone Baby Gone:
This book was AWESOME. I have never before gotten so twisted up into a mystery and subsequent ending. I was blown away. If you don't read the book, at least read the movie. Dennis Lehane is slowly crawling up my list of favorite authors!
This easily slides into my list of favorite romance movies. It contains unconventional love stories in the case of both mother and daughter, which truly show that love is a simple joy that one should take if it shows up in your life (despite the social opinion of the time...).
