Winter Movie Roundup

Over the last week, I have seen an obscene number of movies – five to be exact.* Two of which were on the same day. And I have to tell you, it was awesome.

Instead of keeping all of this hands-on research to myself, I thought you might like to know what I thought of each, so you can make an informed decision at the theater.

Sherlock Holmes – For me, it was fine. It was probably one of my least favorites of the week, but in all fairness, it had pretty stiff competition.

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – So, I haven’t read the book. I know I’m probably one of the only people that hasn’t read it. That being said, two of the people who went with me had, and they enjoyed it. Having never read the book, I have to tell you the movie was great. Disturbing and suspenseful, it stays with you awhile after you see it.

Mission Impossible – So, this wasn’t too bad, until they turned up the cheese volume towards the end. And, it gets a little long in the middle, but not too shabby if you’re looking for a little action.

The DescendentsI can see why this movie is getting Oscar buzz. Great performances all the way around. To give you a heads up, it is sad. I cried a little, but it was worth it.

Young AdultThis movie takes a little bit to settle into. Charlize’s character is so selfish that it takes a while to get used to her. That being said, if you’re from a small town or attended high school, it’s pretty funny. Dark, but very funny.

*Actually, I just realized it was more than that, because those were just the ones we saw in the theater.

    We saw Warhorse on New Year’s. A definite must-see if you are an animal-lover and just really like inspirational movies. It is amazing how smart and loyal horses are! Can’t wait to have a couple of my own someday…
