These two movies today.
The King’s Speech.
Man, it was good. A little slower than I thought it’d be. Dry. But the moments with Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth were priceless. Colin was stellar, well they both were, really.
Colin. Oh Colin. Need I say more?
After that was over, I said goodbye to my friends and headed to the ladies room…as I walked out, something came over me and I walked right into the theatre for True Grit and plopped my arse down and had me a double feature!
It’s always so polarizing when someone tackles a CLASSIC movie, much less a CLASS JOHN WAYNE movie. I’m not a big John Wayne buff. I don’t dislike his work, but I’ve never sought it out. However, True Grit is the one JW film I have actually watched, and remember really loving. The new film was really just so good. Jeff Bridges…his delivery made me laugh out loud on many a line. I wasnt the only one laughing either. It was a beautiful retelling.
As always, I’m impressed with Matt Damon. That kid with the funny “how’dya like dem apples” line is just good.
how was your Sunday?

so glad you had a successful movie day! i loved the performances in true grit but didn’t love the movie. but the kings speech…i thought it was spectacular. i share your love for colin firth and need to seek out more of his films to watch. i know i’ve missed many.
we didn’t leave the house. laundry was done but blinds and curtains were closed and the dvr was cleaned out! i have a love/hate relationship with these cold winter sundays.
hope you have a fantastic week!
It was bubble bath, laundry, football, sober texting, a rewatch of Sex and the City Movie, which triggered a “I-hate-Wyoming” cry, and a perseverance prayer.
I loved True Grit and while I am less a fan of Matt Damon, thought he was great and definitely his best work ever. I would like to see him used more in this vein.
I’m waiting until next month to watch King’s Speech with Chris. I love Colin. He can do no wrong. He’s Darcy, for gosh sakes.
I finally saw The Social Network this weekend. Good movie? Sure. Best picture? I don’t think so.
yeah, i didn’t think best picture either. I was just glad Sork won. great writing.
