If you haven't read The Help by Kathryn Stockett, put it on your list. Not only was it educational for this girl who knows virtually nothing about segregation issues of the 60's (mostly b/c I wasn't born, but I admit, it never affected me, so I didn't care to learn much), but it's also a very well-told story. It's powerful. It will leave you thinking long after you leave the last page. The movie is coming out next week, and I look forward to seeing it come to life. (Hat tip to Mel & Lisa!)
Well, Cowboys & Aliens finally came out last weekend, and we were there! I was so psyched for this
movie b/c I'm a big Daniel Craig fan since the rebirth of Bond, and who isn't a Harrison Ford fan? Hello--Indiana Jones is classic! Put these two together, and you have a sci-fi action movie. Add Sam Rockwell and some aliens, and you adventure and comic relief. (Sam played Doc and was great!) It did start out a bit slow, but once it got going, it was well worth the price of tickets. Craig was good as the hero, but I thought Harrison Ford was the real star here. He's done some bad movies, but this was reminiscent of the first 3 Indiana Jones movies. It was his best performance in a long, long time.
We rented The Adjustment Bureau and really liked it, and not just b/c it was Matt Damon. He was obviously good, as was Emily Blunt, but it was the story. Really liked the concept.
And thanks, Lisa, for sharing book 3 of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series. Finally I can get to the end!
