I have just watched "What If" - a romantic comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe and an unknown American actress. Although she has a boyfriend, they form an easy, natural friendship that develops into stronger feelings.

Not bad but a little overlong.

Lightbulb

A Little Chaos - for some reason I thought it was more of a romantic film (rather than, as billed, a periodic drama), so was a bit disappointed. Very well produced and Kate Winslet was eminently suited to the role. A bit too padded but Alan Rickman is always watchable (he also directed this film).

So....what did you think of it?

I thought it was an interesting film with convincing acting from Brad Pitt.

I'm interested in seeing that RF...what did you think?

I'm also planning on seeing the painful Secret in Their Eyes (2015) | Fandango
It's showing here this week.

What a cast! Have you had a pre viewing yet?

My one son said that this was one of his favorite movies, so I gave it a try.
I thought it had great acting . Bruce willis and Brad Pitt were awesome. There were times when I thought the story was a bit confusing but I'm glad I saw it.

50 shades of gray was free " on demand" last night. Oh my, what a garbage. It was really bad, the dialogue, the plot, the lack of conclusion. I am not even talking about a all the nasty stuff. Seems that is the only thing Hollywood is capable of doing now. The movies are getting worse every year.

I went to the little empty theater (only me) for a private showing this afternoon to see "Secret In Their Eyes" with Julia and Nicole, and glad I did, $5.50 well spent.
The "flash backs" of 13 years are a little tricky until I noticed the grey color (or lack of hair) in the males. Stunning performances all round. I don't give a flip about the "critics"...It's worth the ticket to be sure from this critic.

Since you mentioned Julia, I thought about the movie I saw. It was like the opposite of Pretty Woman. Kind like Bad Santa. They should have call this movie Bad Richard Gere, or should I say Edward Lewis...
