Movies to see ...
The movie list is stacking up too ... since Oscar season is in full swing, I will try to keep up this year as opposed to waiting for the awards to be handed out and then going to the movies.
So here's how things stack up:
"The Great Debate"
- I'm a fan of Forrest Whitaker and I like Denzel Washingto and Oprah (who produced the movie); nice to see those young people do their thing as well
- UPDATE: saw this one; just okay. too formulaic
"The Kite Runner"
- The book is on my reading list; but it looks as if I might see the movie before I read the book (my preference is for the opposite to occur), but I am just very anxious about this one
"I Am Legend"
- I do like Will Smith although it does not seem like my style of movie ... I will give it a go
- Oooh, this is one I am definitely going to see! Adam Rifkin has hit the nail on the head w/a movie about how much of our lives is under surveillance - but he tells the story in a fictional way. Cool
- This one seems interesting; humor gets me every time
- I've heard some Oscar buzz about this one, but I'm not a fan of period pieces, so I am on the fence about this one
"Charlie Wilson's War"
"The Bucket List"
- I like Jack Nicholson; I'm a little warm on Morgan Freeman ... so this one is not high up on the list (and it has not received much love from the critics)
