Some Movie Reviews!

We watched this one a couple weeks ago. I think it's a couple years old. It had a couple off comments, but overall, it was a pretty funny, yet serious movie. I loved the ending, (the very end). I thought Meg Ryan and Timothy Hutton were great together.
This movie was a little more serious. I love movies that show how it was just 50 years ago, amazing to see how far we've come. Sad to see how prejudice the world was. I thought the acting was wonderful in this movie.
*An interesting side note: The movie takes place in the summer, but it is actually winter, so these actors do an excellent job of pretending it's warm outside! Watch the extras on the DVD!

This movie was a little boring, OK, a lot boring, but, I found it interesting at the same time. It's the story of John Keats, the now famous poet. It's amazing to see how he struggled and shows how many artists and poets gave us fine art and yet were not famous until years after their deaths. Kind of like Saints, huh? (although I'm not comparing him to a saint)
The profound love was heartfelt during the movie.
Warning: NOT a movie for the hubby and if you want a movie to lift your spirits, don't watch this one, it's pretty sad through the whole thing.
Wow, why don't you want to watch this after reading that review?
Sorry.
I watched this movie this weekend with Ballerina Rosie. I LOVED it!! It is a remake of the old Ice Castles....starring Robbie Benson....gotta watch that one next!
Very good, but again, probably not a movie for the hubby!
The skaters in this movie are not actors, but did a wonderful job, I would have never guessed that. Can you tell I love the extras on DVD's?
