Movie recommendations please
Just back from the cinema, I was itching to see a movie as going to the cinema is right up there, top 5, of the things I miss most about living in Bermuda, and before my Bermudian readers start ringing in to complain, yes I know there are four cinemas on the island, but, well we’ll just leave it there.
It’s Oscar season and from Christmas to now, it has been in past years a time when I actively seek to see almost every major nominated film that during the year I’ve have missed.
Do you know how many Oscar
nominated movies I have seen this past year? Three. The Dark Knight on a tiny weenie screen on an airplane, Kung Fu Panda (which I thought was better than The Dark Knight) and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. A rubbish return, so by hook or by crook within the next 2 weeks I will try to see a few more so I can at least point, cheer or sneer at the television when those little statues are handed out on the 22nd February.
We saw The Wrestler
this afternoon, in which the almost forgotten Mickey Rourke was truly amazing playing a washed up professional wrestler who had lost everything except his fans.
Other films on my list, and as it will be impossible to see anywhere near all of these I’m looking for recommendations, are:
~The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
~Man on Wire
~The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
