As part of my "blog more" goal for 2011, I'm really going to try to stick with the theme posts and there's no better place to start than with the Weekend Recaps. This one is a little late because my weekend just ended today.
This weekend was all about movies!
Tron was a really fun movie with great special effects and action sequences. We saw it in 3-D and I loved it! I know a lot of people hated it because of the lack of an actual plot, but that didn't bother me because the effects were so awesome. I felt the story carried itself, and it was just an all-around fun movie that didn't have me thinking too much.
True Grit...I was definitely not expecting to like this movie. I was very pleasantly surprised though! The acting was absolutely amazing, and the main character, played by young Hailee Steinfeld, was so well done. The story was intriguing, there were funny and scary moments, and it was nothing like the typical Western movie I was expecting. Definitely see this one!
I'm not even sure what to say about Black Swan. It was disturbing. It was beautiful. It was very hard to watch without covering my eyes. It was emotionally draining. This movie truly had me scratching my head and asking what just happened...overall, I think I liked it. I'd definitely recommend watching it as I think it's going to be a big contender come award season.
The worst movie of the weekend? That would have to be Unstoppable. After reading super high reviews about this movie, we were excited to see it. Umm...not sure what those reviewers were watching, but it couldn't have been the same movie.
Dull, boring, lame, waste of my time...
And C finally wore me down and I agreed to watch his favorite movie of all time (please don't let this reflect poorly on him, he is actually very schooled in film), Into the Blue. I like treasure hunting, I like hotness (aka PW) , I like the ocean so I guess I liked this movie. It was entertaining and didn't require me to think one bit...except about how unfair it is that some people can be soooooo hot :)
Movies I Still Want to See:
The King's Speech
I hope 2011 is off to a great start for all of you! I mentioned this in my previous post, but I just had my 400th post. I'm starting to put together a fun giveaway so look for that soon!
