Some Movie Bits

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 – Think I skipped one installment, but nevertheless I imagine movie has its lovers; I’m not one of them and felt asleep like a baby! Sigh.

Rubber by Quentin Dupieux. Was very curious about “the tire” film, but can’t say that enjoy it much; still watched completely. Enjoy.

Trust the Man by Bart Freundlich. This 2005 movie with Julianne Moore, Maggie Gyllenhaal, David Duchovny and Billy Crudup is a NYC set talkie that has its good moments; maybe the best is the too short scene with Ellen Barkin as the “lesbian predator” to Maggie G character, which was funny as director tried to make it so normal, that became hilarious (at least to me). If you haven’t seen it yet, won’t miss much if you skip it. Enjoy.

Hereafter by Clint Eastwood. I really like this movie mainly because the subject matter that in my opinion can be interpreted in so many ways that becomes a layered story; still the obvious is about death and what happens after. Triptych stories are good, but best is the one with Celine de France that has the tsunami excellent special effects (still after watching real tsunami images, nothing comes close to reality). I do recommend movie for more than entertaining purposes. Enjoy!!!

Mildred Pierce. Watch the 1954 original with Joan Crawford; but DO NOT MISS the miniseries with Kate Winslet is just FANTASTIC and not similar to movie! Enjoy!!!
