Did not finish:Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - It was too slow, too complicated. It was grey and dull and so not my thing.
I'm sure there was another movie but as I can't even remember the title. It must have been appalling.
Mediocre:Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol - Mission Impossible 3 is so tense and exciting. This had a good beginning but it lost it after that. It felt more like Tom Cruise wanting to do another Tom Cruise movie. (And I love most of his movies but he can do better. Way better)
Blue Romantic - Ryan Gosling movie number 1. Depressing film. I must have blinked and missed the romance.
Iron Man - I hadn't seen it and so after watching The Avengers Assemble, I really though I should. It was nowhere near as good. Shame. It was okay. It was just not brilliant.
Larry Crowne - Who doesn't love Tom Hanks? I know I do. This was kind of daft but it was also refreshing in the way it looked at unemployment.
The Vow - Channing Tatum. Lovely story. Moving. I really enjoyed it.
The Notebook - The movie everyone couldn't believe I hadn't seen. Ryan Gosling movie number 2. It was funny and sad at the same time. Honestly though, I preferred The Vow. Sorry Gosling lovers.
Friday Night Lights - the movie. Thank goodness it didn't spoil the end of the first series. I love Matt Saracen and Coach Taylor. The movie was different but still good.
The Great Debaters - Loved this movie about challenging social inequalities.
J. Egdar - I love Leonardo Dicaprio. I think he's an excellent actor and this was a brilliant performance not to mention an interesting story. I never knew the Head of the FBI had a hand in the organisation of the Library of Congress. Fascinating!
The Ides of March - Ryan Gosling movie number 3 (Do you know I didn't know who he was until last weekend?) I think if you like the Newsroom, you'll love this film.
Sugar - part subtitled, part sport story - wholly brilliant. Makes you feel the otherness of being lost in a different culture.
Moneyball - Brad Pitt and Baseball. Winning combination. Sport is not really my thing but after reading and loving The Art of Fielding. I cannot get enough of baseball movies.
Amazing Grace - William Wilberforce fighting to end slavery. This is a movie I've been meaning to see for ages. It did not disappoint.
When I look at this list, I think I am much more broad in my movie choices than I am in my reading choices. What great movies have you been watching lately?
