I was visiting a friend for the past few days, and she showed me a bunch of movies, new and old, that I'd never seen before.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) -- fun! I love Jane Russell in particular, and the music is catchy.
Moonstruck (1987) -- meh. Not bad, but not my type of movie. At least it had opera in it!
Inkheart (2008) -- fun! Helen Mirren steals every scene she's in. I want to see this one again.
Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) -- entertaining, nice music, but not one I particularly want to see again.
Chicago (2002) -- blech, did not like this one, mostly because I could not care about the unsympathetic characters. Why, exactly, am I supposed to root for murderesses to evade their sentences? I did like Catherine Zeta Jones, though. I thought she was great, but it's just not a story I cared for.
True Grit (2010) -- well, I didn't actually finish watching this one. I was so bored about forty-five minutes in that I gave up on it. I know, I'm a Western fanatic, but nothing about this one caught my attention long enough to keep it.
