Movies on my mind
Today was a very movie-heavy day. In the morning, while I caught up on my weekend online reading, I came across a few articles about American movie critic Roger Ebert who passed away earlier this week. The New York Times obituary and Roger Ebert’s Twenty Best Reviews were my favorites. I’m sad to have not known Mr. Ebert’s articles when he was alive, but I am sure I will be visiting his website in the future. I am always looking for interesting movies to watch, and there is nothing like a good, thoughtful review that will enhance the whole movie experience.
In the afternoon I watched The Kid With A Bike. Since the preview alone had made me tear up I had very high expectations, and while the film was still very good, it wasn’t as good as I had hoped. I would say 3.5 out of 5 stars.
I also started to watch Beauty is Embarrassing, a documentary about artisit Wayne White, but I only got through about half. I really enjoyed what I’ve seen so far though.
I hope you’re having a great weekend, my friends.
