Things have been kind of heavy around here so I thought I’d lighten it up a bit! Not that Shutter Island is exactly your feel good kind of movie, but Leo is certainly your feel good kind of guy, ha! :) Can we just talk about him for a second? After he did Romeo and Juliet, I was in love with the boy. OBsessed. Ask my mom. I bought every Teen Beat, Tiger Beat, and BOP magazine with his face on it and promptly cut it out to stick in my Leo DiCaprio 3-ring magnetic photo album. You know the ones I’m talking about. I’m pretty sure my mom still has it. Maybe she can bring it to me so I can post some pictures. It was truly a masterpiece. I don’t even think A’s baby books are that good.
I was also one of those twelve year olds who saw Titanic fourteen times…in the theater. Thank you James Cameron. He was such a boy then! Catch Me if You Can, The Aviator, and Blood Diamond are all movies I could watch again as well (which is rare). The Departed is actually one of my favorite movies; in the top 10 I’d say.
Jump with me quickly (super quick) to the 500 Days of Summer. Did anyone else think this movie was completely boring? I literally fell asleep less than half-way through. Maybe I was really tired though; I wouldn’t put it past me. I’m all for romantic comedies and love stories, and I even think the little lead guy was handsome enough, but man, that movie was sleep city! What’d you think?
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! SPOILER! SPOILER! SPOILER!
DO NOT PROCEED if you haven’t seen it yet (go see it and then come back!) :0)
Shutter Island is also another winner. I can’t wait to see it again actually :) I’d say C and I will probably need to own this movie! It’s the kind of movie that you need to watch again, knowing what happens, because things will make so much more sense. Conversations and sideways glances that didn’t seem to matter much the first time around are actually riddled with meaning.
