I'm doing my very first guest post today over at Tossing It Out. How cool is that, my first ever guest post on one of Arlee's blogs? Brilliant! If you don't already follow Arlee you should go check him out. He has five lovely blogs, my personal fave - A faraway View; a blog about dreams. I'm sure if you're a regular here you know how much I love dreams!
The Artist: There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this movie. Everything about it is perfect; the direction, the acting, the music, I enjoyed it all. The dream scene and the ending are brilliant. I love watching silent movies and this didn't disappoint. There are many famous faces you may recognise too including John Goodman, James Cromwell and Malcolm McDowell. A beautiful story and an absolute must see if you haven't already.
The Descendants: This bored me a little at the start with all the talk of selling land, but once Matt King, played by the very sexy George Clooney, starts on his mission to find the guy his comatosed wife was having an affair with, the movie gets quite funny and a little bit emotional at the same time. It's not as good as I was expecting it to be, I think it might be one of those movies I have to watch again to really appreciate it; I get the feeling I will enjoy it more second time around!
The Grey: It's been a while since I've seen a survival movie like this so I was really looking forward to watching this one. I'm a little undecided about it though. To start, the plane crash was very disappointing, but the aftermath is pretty gruesome which makes up for it. There were quite a few scenes that bored me, but there were also many that scared the crap out of me and had me on sitting up saying 'oh fuck, oh fuck, oh fuck' out loud! At the end I did think what's the point, but the think that's what the movie was trying to do, and because of that I think it's one to watch.
Have you seen these movies? Do you ever have to watch a movie twice to enjoy it properly? You a fan of silent movies?
