The Social Network - This is a great flick! As someone who is an avid user of Facebook, I found it extremely interesting to get a glimpse of the personalities behind the story. Jesse Eisenberg did a fantastic job portraying Mark Zuckerburg. And there's a new British cutie that I have my eye on. Hello Andrew Garfield!
Temple Grandin - This one is based on the real life of our title character. I enjoy true stories, especially ones about people overcoming disabilities dealt to them. The story is compelling and Claire Danes proves that she is a phenomenal actress. I give this movie 4 stars!
Planes, Trains & Automobiles - I might be the only person on the planet who had never seen this classic comedy. Hubby was persistent about us watching this the other night and I'm so glad we did. Steve Martin & John Candy were a great comedic duo and any movie that can make me literally cry with laughter gets 2 thumbs up from me.
Clash of the Titans (2010) - The cast list of this movie is full of European stars, which you would hope bodes well for a good film. However, hubby says it just didn't live up to the original. I'll have to take his word for it because I never saw the original and don't plan to. The special effects were pretty cool and Sam Worthington is nice eye candy. Other than that, the film was just ok.
Inception - The cinematography was nausea-inducing. The storyline was incredibly hard to follow. And I am reminded, yet again, that Christopher Nolan is my least favorite director & writer of all time. I didn't care for this one but apparently I'm in the minority.
I'm on the hunt to see as many 2011 Best Picture Oscar nominees as I can before the ceremony on the 27th. So far, of the 10 nominees, I've seen 3. The Social Network, Inception and Toy Story 3.
What's a movie you've seen lately? Or one that you want to see? Are you an Oscar fan?
