I watched a bunch of movies this weekend....
A Beginners Guide to Endings - Three brothers think they're dying because of some miscommunications with their recently deceased father. It was ok cept the ending. It was worth the time to watch it. ***
The Warriors - Yes, the 1979 movie. It's still as awesome as ever. lalala...in the city. Funny thing is when I first saw this movie on it's release I was a fully suburbanized 17 year old. I then was under the impression that the movie a realistic portrayal of gang-life in NYC. It's a compelling pursuit plot-line made spectacular by settings and gangs and music - and the DJ. Even the little romance story is just the right amount. If you've not seen it - you must. *****
Life of Pi - I never read the book, so can't compare the two, but I liked the movie. Good story, good screen play. The tiger was really good, as were the other animals. I bet it would have been fun in 3-D. ****
Beasts of the Southern Wild - This was a hard movie to watch. It was reality and non-reality and imaginings and child perceptions all mixed up together with very obscure lines of demarcation. There was lots of angry, and some cute and even a bit of interesting musings from Hushpuppy, the main character. Hushpuppies father was a dynamite actor but played such a sad angry character it made me uncomfortable. ***
We kept meaning to get Mud on PPV but we (the hubby and I) never got our timing to sync up.
