I've been slacking on keeping up with my movie reviews... so here is what I've seen so far in 2011:
I saw the Green Lantern a few weeks ago, but forgot to post about it… It was funny. Nothing amazing, but still an enjoyable action comedy. I laughed a lot, and sometimes that is exactly what you need from a movie!
I went to see The King’s Speech after open studios with Rachel a while back (a couple months ago at this point). I really liked it! I was expecting it to be good considering all the buzz it has gotten, but I was a tad worried it would be dry or stuffy. I was pleasantly surprise. Not only was it really good it was also really funny. I definitely recommend it! Plus, who doesn’t love Colin Firth?
At first I didn't really want to go see this... I'm not usually a fan of boxing, or sports in general, but I am glad I went to see this one. I liked it a lot. It was particularly interesting to me considering I live a few towns over from where it is set and I grew up in this general area. I thought both Mark Walberg and Christan Bale did a fantastic job!
I wanted to see The Adjustment Bureau, but I didn’t think I was going to love it. I was expecting it to be more of an action movie, yet I would classify it as more of a drama. I liked the underlining message about free will as well. I definitely recommend it.
Rango was really fun! I enjoyed the characters a lot, and I love Johnny Depp so there was that! I get the feeling adults would enjoy it more than kids, but I don’t have any children so I can’t really say for sure. The nod to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas at the beginning was absolutely fantastic!
I went to see Henry Rollins this weekend and enjoyed the show very much. I was impressed with with him, he is truly a very interesting man. While I did not agree with all of his points, I did respect his passion and his love of learning, traveling, and sharing.
I tried to take some pictures with my phone but it was crowded and dark...
