Movies This Month

Vacations, kids, work (you know, life) this past month ebbed our usual flow of movies we watch. But I’ve got a few to throw your way.

The Lincoln LawyerThis was one of a few flicks we wanted to see that was crossed off our list. It was witty, well acted, and just plain entertaining without being completely predictable, which is saying something for movies these days. I’m giving it a 3.5 out of 4 stars. It didn’t change my life (except for strengthening my crush on Mr. McConaughey), but I really liked it.

Coco Before Chanel – Yesterday I had a few hours of peace and quiet (aka… I was home alone) and happened upon this movie OnDemand. What seduced me to watch was when I saw my favorite foreign actress, Audrey Tautou, was the star. I LOVE HER! It chronicles the early life of Coco Chanel, before she became a fashion icon. Very interesting story, Audrey Tautou was wonderful. It IS a foreign film, which means that it’s subtitled, which explains why I chose to watch this one on my own :). Anyway, I’m giving it a 3 out of a 4.

Rango – Let me start off by saying that I liked this movie. But I was also a little disappointed. I was blown away by the amazing animation… seriously, the “cartoons” these days look more real than real life does. That being said, there were some spots that were a little slow (OK, a lot slow), and didn’t add much to the story. However, there were some scenes that were hilarious and entertaining. So I’m giving it 3 stars. It wasn’t UP or TOY STORY, but it was good.

Part of the reason we haven’t logged in much movie time is that we have been dedicating some of the free time we have together to catching up on the shows we are into each week.

JUSTIFIED – It’s not Dexter, but what is?! It is, however, the next best thing… we LOVE this show. It’s a mix between a good ole’ classic western, The Sopranos, Law & Order, and other good stuff. This series gets a 4 out of 4 stars from me!

Also worthy of mention are these following shows: Modern Family, Parks and Recreation. If you haven’t been watching them, you should be ashamed of yourself. You can earn forgiveness by sending money to me at my PayPal account.
