MOVIE MONDAY



So being under the weather for a few weeks now has kept me out of the show. I finally pushed myself to go on Tuesday last week. Luckily while I was stuck in the house there haven't been a whole bunch of moving calling my name!

If I Stay (MDb) was one that I had hoped to see a few weeks ago. It opened Friday August 22 which is the first day I woke up not feeling well.  

Let me tell you that this movie was excellent. They presented this story very well when it comes to editing. It is a sad story but had my attention throughout the whole movie. I will buy this movie on DVD when it comes out. I like a good drama with a touch of love mixed in. 

"Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined."


Went to see Magic in the Moonlight (IMDb) which is a Woody Allen movie, As a rule I enjoy his movies, they are usually different and unusual compared to other movies. This one was entertaining but not as good as some of his others have been. Seemed to be missing something. 

"A romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. Personal and professional complications ensue."


I went to see What If (IMDb) with Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan which I really enjoyed a lot! It was different and quirky and I just liked the people so much. I just might buy this movie when it comes out on DVD. 


"Wallace, who is burned out from a string of failed relationships, forms an instant bond with Chantry, who lives with her longtime boyfriend. Together, they puzzle out what it means if your best friend is also the love of your life."


Finally had the opportunity to see The Railway Man (IMDb) on DVD from Netflix. Mark wasn't very impressed with it but I actually found it to be very interesting and informative. It is based on a true story and I'm glad I saw it. Sure it's a little slow but it held my interest. 
"A former British Army officer, who was tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labor camp during World War II, discovers that the man responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him."

Have you seen any good movies lately?
