Three great movies

Sunday, December 11th, 2005 | Random Morsels

This weekend was a weekend full of movies… Friday night was Brokeback Mountain… Oh my GOD… SUCH A good movie – I REALLY Enjoyed it. Not a feel good movie but really well done. The story was fantastic, the cinematography was stunning, and Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal did an exceptional job. Both of those guys did an AMAZING job portraying a couple who is truely in love and all of the awful things that came along with it for them. I can’t say that I’d recommend that everyone see it – it isn’t necessarily for the hard core ‘phobes. But to anyone else that doesn’t go in with their own agenda will walk away really getting how much these two loved each other and how hard it is to live in a world that can’t accept that… Uggggg… SO GOOD..

Then Saturday night Jamie and I went and saw Wild at Heart with Nicholas Cage and Laura Dern (among MANY others)… This was a David Lynch movie in all its glory… REALLY Fucked up story of a paroled ‘manslaughterer’ (Nicholas Cage) who breaks parole and drives across country with his girlfriend (Laura Dern), having sex at every opportunity, and avoiding the hit man her mom (Diane Ladd) sends after them… It is just twisted but really good..

Then tonight we went to see The Chronicles of Narnia. This was a book that I read MANY times when I was a kid so I was dying to see it – as a result I drug Kevin to see it after a LONG day of shopping. We were really exhausted so I wasn’t sure if I’d make it – but I did and I’m so glad I did.. There have been a couple of film versions of this prior to this one which all REALLY sucked.. But this one was actually really good – I really liked it.. The talking animals were a little distracting but I wrote that off to just not being used to animals talking. But they really couldn’t have done it without them (thats the whole moive)… Over all it was a fantastic movie..

But the winner for the weekend is definitely Brokeback Mountain.. That one is gonna win awards!.. 🙂
