A Movie Worth Seeing…Many Times!

Last night, a few of my friends and I went to go see the Avengers movie midnight release.  I had seen several advertisments for the movie prior to going, and went into the theater with high expectations.  I was not disappointed.

From start to finish, the Avengers film was well worth the wait.  The acting was superb, the score was magnificent, and the plot was action-packed.  Should you decide to go see it, make sure that you stay put through the credits – you definitely do not want to miss this extended scene!  I would heartily recommend going to see this movie.  Avengers assemble!

Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall…

If you are still on the fence as to whether or not you should go see the movie Mirror Mirror in theaters, allow me to give you one word of advice: go!  I went in to see this movie tonight, hoping for it to live up to my high expectations (read: hoping it would not end up being just another Disney rip off), and walked out of the theater both surprised and pleased.  Julia Roberts was a most excellent, delightfully wicked queen, and the new comer – Lily Collins – played the part of Snow White beautifully.  If you are looking to go see a film this weekend with plot, humor, magic, and a sprinkle of sarcasm, this is a must see.  Hats off to you, Tarsem Singh Dhandwar, for a job well done!

One For…My Film Collection

I finally was able to go see the film One For The Money today, and am happy to say that it was well worth the wait.  Julie Anne Robinson, who directed the movie, and Katherine Heigl, who produced it, kept the storyline fairly true to the book – sparing those of us in the audience the unnecessary content usually shown in an attempt to generate more hype and increase profits.  Heigl played the role of Stephanie Plum brilliantly, and I was very pleased with the director’s choice for the actress chosen to play Lula, Sherri Shepherd (she nailed the character).  I am eager to see how the next book in the series, Two For The Dough, translates into film, and hope that it is just as good if not better than this one.  My recommendation: go see this movie (and read the book)!
