A Good Compliment to History Reading!

Posted : 7 years, 3 months ago on 27 July 2011 11:25 (A review of The Last of the Mohicans (Enhanced Widescreen) (1992))

I loved this movie, but I'm sure the timing of my watching it had a lot to do with my being able to appreciate it as much as I did. I'm just nearing the end of reading a history book titled American Colonies by Alan Taylor which includes great information regarding French, Indian, settler, and British relations during colonial times. This movie was therefore a big treat for me with its beautiful scenery, characters, and sniplets of historical facts that I was able to recognize from my reading. Everything in the movie seemed as authenic as one could at least imagine it to be. Lots of action too!

Laughing Through Tears!

Posted : 7 years, 8 months ago on 17 March 2011 01:13 (A review of Something's Gotta Give)

Though Jack Nicholson is great as usual, Diane Keaton steals the show in this one. She had me laughing to the point of tears! Her character holds nothing back for the sake of pride, yet comes off too funny to be pathetic. Admittedly my enthusiasm probably has a lot to do with me being female and this being a fabulous chick flick, but I think men will enjoy this one too due to the nice balancing dose of Nicholson's presence.
