Movies, Movies, Movies!

So the title of this post is a little... enthusiastic. Well, here are some comments I have about movies I've seen recently.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Usually I like romantic comedies and chick flicks, stuff that makes me laugh and doesn't get me
down. That's why I wasn't crazy about this movie. Romantic? Maybe. Comedy? Not so much. It was 3 hours of random scenes, going in detail through Benjamin Button's (long) life, and lots of depressing news about so-and-so dying, and so-and-so getting hit by a car. It was a total downer, so don't watch it unless you have something fun to do later on, or you may fall into an unhappy funk.

Leatherheads
Yeah, I know it's old. But I've got Netflix so that's alright. Anyway, it was funny and cute, just like John Krasinski, who plays Jim in The Office, and up-and-coming football star in this movie. It's a sports movie, but not really. The characters are clever and quirky, and there's lovely plot twists, and adorable romance.

Son of Rambow
Fairly new, but I Netflix'd it, too. The cutest thing! Wonderful movie. It's charming and heartwarming and clever and fun. There's no romance, but, hey, it's about kids! Not that that's a reason not to watch it.


So maybe you can check out some of these movies. Check out the next post for my new signature scent and other perfume adventures in the life of a Shopaholic Material Girl.

I actually love Benjamin Button. But then again, I love movies that make me cry. But I thought it was done well.
