There are finally movies out that I want to see again! It felt like there was NOTHING to see in March and April. We've been going a lot lately, and I love it! Here is what I've seen:
Le Week-End: This is a film about an older couple spending a weekend in Paris for their anniversary. It is funny, sad, uncomfortable and moving in turns. The two main actors are really good and I recognized things from my long term relationship in theirs. Totally recommend if you like character driven movies.
Belle: I feel like I've been waiting forever for this to come out! I LOVE Regency period movies and this one is based on the true story of a mixed race woman raised in an upperclass white household. It started off kind of choppy and I was a little disappointed but it evened out and I ended up loving it! The costumes! The sets! The acting! The romance! Some things weren't period accurate (I ranted about it to Travis after I saw it, and I'm sure he could care less, haha!) but I still really enjoyed it. I'll watch it again. I went to see it the first showing it was available in Nashville, and it was me and about 30 senior citizens. My crowd for sure!
The Fault in our Stars: I read this book last month (I really need to update my reading list!) and I LOVE a sad movie so I couldn't wait to see this. I went by myself with tissues ready but didn't cry at all. I'm not sure if it was because the girls next to me were crying SO LOUD or because it was just TOO much. I don't want to spoil it but you probably know what is going to happen. It was kind of fun to watch, but it wasn't as great as I was hoping. I was happy that the guy they picked to play Augustus was much cuter in motion than in the stills that have been posted. (Is that weird to say? Haha, I just imagined him much cuter than the stills looked.) If I was a tween I would probably be OBSESSED with this movie.
Godzilla: I'm pretty sure I said it before, but I thought Godzilla was awesome! A fun summer action movie with great effects. Godzilla looked so cool! And I loved seeing it at the drive in so I could scream with my friends.
I can't wait to see 22 Jump Street next week, and Gardians of the Galaxy! Have you seen anything good lately? Is Maleficent good? I can't decide if I want to see it or not.
