We saw two movies this week end. One good, one bad.
We saw two movies this week end. One good, one bad. My wife and I are movie buffs. The good one... "Match Point", Woody Allen's best movie in years. Intelligent. London instead of Manhattan. Chris Wilton, a young tennis instructor, becomes involved with a wealthy family, one member of which he's giving tennis lessons to. This leads to his rise in the world of upper class people and his subsequent romantic involvement with two women. Nice little plot twist at the end. Double thumbs up!
The other film my wife talked me into, but after "rave" reviews from the (liberal) media, I said OK.
"Brokeback Mountain" yes, a film about two gay sheep herder cowboys. After being bombarded by the media that this movie was "beautiful, sensitive and moving enough to make audiences cry". I found that both of the men were extremely selfish, deceitful, lying and uncaring to their wives and children. This was not a movie about love, but about sex. We went to this movie with an open mind, but found the story to be lame. Double thumbs DOWN.
