As you may know (well if you didnt now you know) I am a FAN of Netflix! What an easy way to get movies without going outside. I get my movies in a day or two, so no big deal!(I do need a break from watching movies time to time) Pretty fast delivery in my opinion, also my local BLOCKBUSTER has limited titles anyways.
So I just saw "Scoop" starring Scarlett Johansson and Hugh Jackman and Woody Allen. Scarlett Johansson's character is a very cute and likable character. (Cute to see her in a quirky type of role, instead of the serious ones) The story is about a reporter who died recently, magically(or ghostly (i made up that word if its not a word)) appears before Scarlett and tells him that a Lord/Royalty(Hugh Jackman)is the Tarot Card Killer. She starts to investigate Hugh Jackman to see if he is truly the Tarot Card Killer. I wont say anymore because I dont want to spoil it...but she does sort of fall for him (since he is oh so charming blah!) It was a cute movie, although Woody Allen's character is annoying as hell!!! But that was the point and he did a good job at doing it. So go and put it on your queue (if you subscribe to netflix) and rent it. It's a cute movie! mogura approves!
"The Last Kiss" starring Zach Braff, Casey Affleck, Rachel Bilson is about a bunch of 30-year olds trying to adapt and come to terms with adulthood. This movie felt pretty real in terms of what men and women and go through and feel in terms of their relationship. Coming to terms with adulthood is not an easy thing and it is clearly shown in the movie. No matter how old you are, we are all afraid of something, whether it's becoming an adult or feeling like theres nothing left in life, feeling trapped, etc... The Last Kiss shows us all those feelings mostly from the Male point of view, since the woman's point of view is shown mostly from the Jacinda Barrett's character's mom(the younger females in the movie seem to not have much dialog) All those feelings that you may have had in terms of growing up or being in a relationship, I felt it is shown in this movie very well. I thought the movie was very well acted: The struggling husband who has a child, a boyfriend who feels theres no surprises left in his life. I'm sure many men and women feel scared of what's coming ahead in the unknown future. Making choices is a part of life and its those choices in life that will make you or break you...
But make sure you go and check out "The Last Kiss" Mogura approves!
