Good Will Hunting

★★★★★

(yes, that is six stars – reserved for only for my top 3 movies)

Some people can never believe in themselves, until someone believes in them.

“So what did I think? I’m holdin’ out for somethin’ better. I figure fuck it, while I’m at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president” – Will

“I have a bullshit answer for everything” – Sean


“I think I got some of your pickle” – Skylar

“Does this violate the doctor-patient relationship?” – Will
“Not unless you grab my ass” – Sean

“You’re my best friend, so don’t take this the wrong way. In 20 years, if you’re still livin’ here, comin’ over to my house to watch the Patriots games, still workin’ construction, I’ll fuckin’ kill you. That’s not a threat; now, that’s a fact. I’ll fuckin’ kill you” – Chuckie

If you haven’t seen this movie, you seriously haven’t lived yet. It’s incredible that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were nobodies and wrote this incredible screenplay. It changed their lives forever. Every time I watch this movie, I interpret it differently. It changes your philosophy on life, and impacts you differently every time. The intensity of it is almost scary, and the good ending is the cherry on top. If you don’t grow as a person after watching it you have some serious disconnect issues. When I say this is one of my favorite movies I actually mean it. It falls in at No. 2 right behind Gladiator. This is a classic, worth watching once a year to do a little soul searching, with some great actors Minnie Driver, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Robin Williams. Love them, (and the amazing soundtrack)!

The Last Song

The movie was suprisingly good! I was expecting good, I wasn’t expecting to cry like a baby one minute, sigh like a sissy, and then laugh out loud. I can’t say it beat The Notebook or A Walk To Remember, but it was good!!!! Nicholas Sparks knows how to write books, that women will fall apart with – whether watching it as a movie or reading it as a novel. I guess we can watch and find out how long Liam and Miley will stick together?

Bonus- A good soundtrack! OneRepublic, Eskimo Joe, Miley Cyrus (duh…), Ra Ra Riot, Jose Gonzalez, Iron & Wine, Maroon 5, Edwin McCain,

The Young Victoria

Review: The Young Victoria (finally!)

☆☆☆☆ I’ am so relieved I finally got to see it. On a flight from Lima to Rome. I crammed in as many movies as I possibly could! When I saw The Young Victoria I almost jumped out of my seat but instead I settled in for what came to be one of my top ten favorite period films! This movie in comparison to Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice doesn’t take the cake but it definitely takes a few good bites out of it! This movie is elegant and simple. You are sucked into their world. You end up feeling like you want what they want just as much! Yes it is a movie, but it does not glamorize anything. It’s a real story, a real life. I loved it and the filming was done really well! This is will be added to my DVD library muy pronto! To top it off Emily Blunt did great without over doing it! and he was nominated for a Golden Globe:  Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Motion Picture, and a British Independent Film award as Best Actress! and as opposed to Pride and Prejudice where you hate him as Mr. Wickham you love him as he portrays Prince Albert! and last but not least Mark Strong and Paul Bettany are a great addition as peripheral characters.

Love Happens

☆☆☆ Previews looked good but you are left wondering if it is going to have a HEA (Happily Ever After) Ending. Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart compliment each other well. There are of course quirky parts but the tone of this movie feels real. Life isn’t always easy. I don’t think I would buy the movie but it was definitely worth watching. Plus it had a really good soundtrack, definitely Seattle inspired with a song by Death Cab for Cutie.
