A "Moment" At The Movies



Exciting news. To me anyway, I am at the library doing this blog because I had an errand in my mom's part of town that I wanted done this week (it was at an office so it had to be done on a weekday and needed to be done by December 1st. So anyways, being on a library computer, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to save and add a picture but as you can see, with a librarian's help, success!

The picture is from Yahoo Images as they often are, this time via http://www.influx.com.br/. It is a foreign language site of some kind and I didn't notice a translate feature (I didn't really look hard either) so you are on your own if you decide to check it out.

To the heart of the matter. Movies. I have been at many movies since the last time I wrote a movie review post (heaven only knows how long ago that was). I mentioned (yesterday I think) that I had a number of drafts in the queue. Well one of them was for a review of the movie The Adjustment Bureau.

I hadn't posted about movies for a long time before or at all since and just by the film you can tell how long ago that was! (even though it was at the cheap theatre there isn't that much difference in time).

I was going to talk briefly about all the movies I'd seen since then. However, I don't (but should) keep a list. Why? How about because, in trying to think of them all I am drawing a pretty big blank.
Maybe it's for the best though. I did after all title this a moment at the movies. So I'll just talk about the one that I remembered first. Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris.

Let me start by saying that while I kind of wanted to see it I kind of didn't too. LOL. If that makes any sense at all. You see I can't really remember ever seeing a Woody Allen movie and I wasn't sure I'd like his style. I did like the concept of the picture which was essentially travelling back in time in, well, Paris.

But then there were other Woody Allen movies I had heard about that also sounded interesting but never made a point to see.  Well, in the end I did see it. It took me forever though. It was so far into it's run at the cheap theatre's that it was only playing in the evening. Kind of ironic actually. Late Night at Midnight In Paris.

The movie stars Owen Wilson & Rachel McAdams. An interesting pairing. The OW character is his typical mildly charming guy. The RM character doesn't fare as well however. She's a bit of a bitch. There's not a whole lot of plot really. Just a pleasant little movie about exactly what you think it's about.

The one thing that was a little different than I was expecting was the ending. That is not to say it was especially surprising, just a little unexpected. To me anyways. Well worth renting. If you can find a place to rent it. I mean an actual store that is. Well, I guess there are those kiosks now.

  2. I liked the Adjustment Bureau as well. Don't really like or dislike Matt Damon. Would have to say though the the movie put me over a bit to the side of like rather than dislike.
