Last Friday I saw W.E. ( For me, this was one of those movies that I became obsessed with instantly--and was incredibly disappointed to once again be living in a cultural abyss. So last Thursday, I thought "Hey maybe, just maybe, it will be at the Broadway tomorrow." And when I searched and it was there, I thought my eyes were deceiving me!!!
I have to admit I didn't love it as much as I wanted to, but I DID love it!!! In fact today I have my hair up and red lipstick on--my best Wallis Simpson look.
This was maybe the best moment of the movie:
AND....Andrea Riseborough is my new Claire (when they do finally get with the program and make Outlander a movie...I'm going to do another post later with my dream cast).
So, here are a few things that made this movie so outstanding:
  • Wallis Simpson's wardrobe....SO AMAZING!
  • Some awesome moments with music--yay good job Madonna!
  • Hearing about the "other brother"---you know, the scandalous one.

Omg I love that photo!

Now for what I didn't like...there was only one thing:

  • Really could've done without the modern story--would've preferred just to have a start to finish of the Duke and Duchess.

And one more photo for good measure...I mean are you kidding me?

But this was was truly my favorite--look at that tailoring!

By-the-way, look forward to many more posts as I am enlisting the help of some fabulous people!!! It's good to be back...

The last few weeks, I have been making a lot of effort to get back in touch with my dear friend, the movie theater. It's been rather wonderful!!! I've got several to blog about so let's get on with it!

Oh my beloved Harry!!! What will I do when your movies are finished???

I went to see HP7 w/my mom and sis on Saturday after it was released. I shutter just thinking about awesome and scary and amazing and WONDERFUL!! I will never understand people who don't like these movies. On a bigger note, I will never understand people who don't like movies of books, period. To me they are like the extra supplement to the book. Providing some extra material to an already awesome thing.

This part was a particular highlight for me. It happened so quickly and really shocked me into the reality of what they were about to go through. I loved them whisking from place to place. Hermione is such a STAR!!! It was awesome and sad and horrifying and so many other things...

Let's talk Bellatrix for a minute. I decided I am going to be her for Halloween next freakishly awesome!!!!

This photo will give me chills for the rest of time. So.......PERFECT!!!

One thing I love about HP movies is they've gathered up every one of my favorite actors from the this fruit cake freak show....seriously hilarious!

Actually I take that back....why hasn't Clive Owen been in an HP movie yet?

But anyway I digress. Professor Snape??? BETTER THAN EVA!!! Seriously. Plus look at that hair!!
And as always, these two are a definite highlight for me....
If you haven't seen the movie yet I doubt there is any convincing you so I won't waste my time. I will just say this movie was a 10 for me and I can't wait for part 2 and I love love love this series and am so thankful it was created during my lifetime!!!

The Town

Don't let the horrifying movie poster scare you off b/c The Town is hands down the best movie that I've seen this year (without really thinking about what movies I've seen this year so I might have to correct myself later). I saw it 2 weeks ago and have thought of it every day since.
I always have loved Ben and wouldn't pass up an opportunity to see him in speak his "native tongue." This show was amazing for so many different reasons. The violence wasn't as bad as I was expecting but the language was horrible--similar to Good Will Hunting.
Every character was complete perfection! I must see this again soon!!! Oh and thank you Christy for sending me this hilarious ecard which I totally agree with. :)
This will definitely be worth your $8-$12....go see it and tell me what you think!

Kites is my new favorite movie...even though I haven't seen it yet thanks to living in a cultural abyss. Just watch the trailer and if you agree, you are my friend. :)

These people are so hot it's not normal. Plus doesn't the main guy look like an Indian Bradley Cooper? Bollywood + salsa + Indian Bradley Cooper = home run!!!

The Secret in their Eyes

I am once again resolving to blog about more movies!! How can I not have blogged since February? I disgust myself!!! Anyway awhile ago I saw The Secret in their Eyes--after being nagged by Christy for several weeks. My sweet Amanda and I have a tradition to go to the movies together at least twice a year--for our birthdays. So this was my pick for my special day this year.
It's hard for me to describe this movie--especially waiting as long as I have to blog. It was amazing and shocking and interesting and more. WHEW! Just thinking about it again makes me want to go see it one more time. There was sooooooooooooooooo much about this movie that was purely fantastic!!

The thing that stands out most were the actors--they were all incredibly good and incredibly gorgeous to look at. The story is about a man who is haunted by a case that was closed 30 years ago....but he isn't satisfied so he returns to the scene of the crime to uncover the truth. Wow this scene was amazing...
I believe this movie won the Oscar for best foreign film and I totally understand why. TRULY AMAZING! I think it's still at the Broadway in SLC and I highly recommend it....but also be warned that it's a foreign film so by nature there will be some shocking things because of the cultural differences. It's absolutely worth the travel to a far away theater!!!

Valentine's Day

Saw Valentine's Day last Thursday and I thought it was just a really cute show! Overall, I'd give it an 8.
First of all, it was amazing how many people and story lines were in it. I thought it weaved together nicely and kept me interested throughout.

Love Actually is my favorite movie like this--where it unfolds throughout the movie of who knows who and how they are all linked. This one didn't even compare to Love Actually, but in general I like this kind of format.

Favorite characters....obviously Jen Garner--still totally love her!
Naturally, Bradley Cooper....he didn't get nearly enough air time though....
And what a surprise (because I've really only seen him in corny movies until now)--Ashton was so cute!!!

If you're in the mood for a cute, light story, this is it! I highly recommend it!

2009 Top Ten

I'm finally getting around to my favorite movies of was a bit of a bummer of a year for movies but I saw enough of them that I found 10 that I liked. :) I'm not gonna say much--bit will link to my original posting about the movie if you wanna read more....

Honorable Mention: New Moon (hated the book but the movie was an improvement so I'm giving it props. I didn't blog about this one so I haven't linked to anything.)

10. Whip It: Never blogged about it either but I absolutely loved it!!!!!

9. The Hangover: Still laughing about this one winning the Golden Globe! :)

8. HP6: I love everything about Harry!

7. The Proposal: Best romantic comedy of the year! Gives me hope that it is possible to make a good RC!

6. Wolverine: My review pretty much says it all.

5. The Blind Side: Again, never blogged about it--must've been the holidays that got in the way. Oh how I loooooved this movie!!!

4. 500 Days of Summer: So clever!!!

3. Avatar: Such a surprise!!!

2. Time Traveler's Wife: This is the only movie this year that earned a 10. Actually Star Trek probably earned that too....but I loved this one for many more emotional reasons.

1. Star Trek: Still in awe that I want to own this--I never like "action" movies but this one was definitely much much more!! It gets the top spot b/c I am still shocked that I liked it so much!

Do you agree? Disagree? Did I forget any good ones?
