Mrs & Mrs. Smith

Brad Pitt finally made a movie that I like and would recommend to others. That being the recently launched Mr & Mrs. Smith. It was a bit over the top but the movie worked despite the gimmickry due to the sexual heat/chemistry between Brad and Angelina. Plus there were also some very clever funny lines. And despite the violent aspects of the plot, the movie at its core is an old-fashioned romantic comedy.

Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith

I forgot to mention in my list of actitivities for the last two weeks that I’ve also seen a couple movies at the theatre. The first being The Interpreter and the second and perhaps more memorable being Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith. No doubt about it, this last in the Star Wars series is extremely visually appealing. But am I the only one who found the story and dialogue lacking? Hmmm, maybe I’m being too harsh a critic. And really despite the £10 price for entry, definitely think I got more for my money with Star […]

And Afternoon At The Movies

I saw two movies yesterday that made me cry. The first one was really bad. Said movie based on a hit play of the same name is titled: Diary of An Angry Black Woman. The movie is about a black woman who is trying to find her way in the world after being dumped unceremoniously by her husband for another woman after 18 years of marriage. The story is a good one, but I got annoyed with the antics of the grandmother character – really caricature. Her advice and actions were totally over the top and played into previously depicted […]

Being Julia

I have not seen many of the Oscar nominated films this year, but I recently saw Being Julia. Annette Benning’s performance as London’s reigning stage actress during the 1930s makes this movie delightful to watch so I can see why she was nominated for a best actress award. So good luck to her on Sunday!
