The story seems a bit romanticized, even sweet if you will, given its time and setting. There is a little bit of history to be learned from the film. Also while the music fits the film, some of it is out of context, that is some songs were not produced or recorded until some years later. A minor quibble. It makes up for this with all the feel good energy . I think the actors did their own singing, so that’s a plus. The movie made me want to get up and dance in the aisles. And I’m not a dancer kind of guy. Luckily, I think they frown on this at the movies, even in the dark. If you see this, stay for the end credits. Due out on dvd in August.
Whisk, my mum saw that months ago and really enjoyed it too...I must get it

For Father's Day, Mrs. K took me to see "Man of Steel" in IMAX 3D. I've seen every Superman movie, but I think I like this new one the best. The film has sort of a dark feel - the same sort of treatment that was done with the Batman franchise in recent years.

Henry Cavill and the guy who plays General Zod both do a great job with their characters. The special effects and 3D were also outstanding and gave the movie a sense of realism, however, I felt some of the battle scenes were a little long and over the top. I guess that's typical Hollywood these days, though.

I watched a movie that was so dumb that you really couldn't stop watching it. It was called Rubber. It was so strange.

I finally saw Money Ball last night.
And before that the Skin I live In (or something like that... very strange movie).

Right now I'm watching Moonstruck. Again.

Started watching Cloud Atlas last night. Seriously bizarre. Stooped in the middle somewhere. Could not watch it anymore, even with the help of DW, and she read the book.

Hmmm? Am I supposed to glean that movies that feature Keanu Reeves have limited vocabulary? If so, this movie definitely did not qualify. It was quite good.
