Following is a list of DVDs I've seen this summer, ones I found the most interesting.
Casino Jack- Both the documentary and the one with Kevin Spacey
Company Men-Ben Afleck at his best
Kings Speech- Academy Award Winner and deserving of it.
Down Low- Robert Duval in a juicy role
Freedom Writers- Redeeming
Crazy Heart-Love that Jeff Bridges in a gritty, strong part
Gran Torino-Clint Eastwood plays a racist Korean War veteran who's forced to confront his own prejudice.
All Good Things- Murder Mystery-suspenseful
Up In The Air- George Clooney being charming and surprises to come
Conviction- The critics missed the boat with this one. Hilary Swank and Sam
Rockwell give fine performances.
This list doesn't include movies I've seen in a theater, only those watched as DVDs. These films were entertaining and helped me stay cool indoors. Thanks go to my local Blockbuster video store for my frequent at-home movie viewing. Blockbuster offered a customer appreciation "free viewing" period through July 4th. Here's their website, in case you're interested. http://www.blockbuster.com/
Now the quote for today- "Everything I learned I learned from the movies."
Happy viewing folks!
