the nag

I saw it a couple of years ago after reading good reviews of it. My reaction was identical to yours.

Sorry about your movie experience. I watched Atonement over the weekend. Was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time.


Ugh. I hate that. It's just as bad as reading a lackluster novel. The older I get, the less patience I have for wasting my time on movies or books I don't enjoy. I can't tell you how many books I don't finish these days. Life is too short.

That said, "Lars and the Real Girl" and "Juno" were both great movies we recently watched via Netflix.

Loved "Lars and the Real Girl." Still waiting for "Juno."


Playing catch-up on all my favorite reading ...

I absolutely loved the movie. So okay, it was a little slow, but I really got sucked in by the whole "you can teach tricks to an old dog" concept. I felt that Schultze's interactions with others were portrayed brilliantly! I really felt the struggle he had with language barriers, the triumph of learning something new and the heartache of knowing his friends didn't understand him. Who couldn't relate to his uncertainty about stealing a boat or to the joy of making a new friend?

I guess I watch movies the same way I read books. I want to be in there ... right next to the characters ... experiencing everything they encounter.

I watched it in one sitting. I'm not suggesting you watch it again but maybe watching it in segments didn't help.
