A couple reviews

With 2008 coming to an end and the big guns coming out, i have a couple reviews for Marley and Me, and Valkyrie.

First up, i found myself in a packed theater on xmas day, i guess i wasn't the only one not celebrating christmas, for opening day of Marley and Me. I was informed of the ending from someone who read the book, so i new it might be a rough film to watch. The film bounces around a bit, but is mostly about the ME, and not so much about Marley. Owen wilson does a great job, not sure if i can say the same about Aniston. Overall its not a great film, and if your not a dog person or animal person it will probably not have much impact. But if you happen to have your own "worlds worst lab" at home it kicks you in the gut a few times. By the end i am dead serious when i say there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd, 250lb tattoed tough guys were shielding there eyes as they left the theatre. I'm glad i saw the film, but i'll probably never watch it ever again.

Next up World War 2 suspense thriller, Valkyrie, now i don't want to give to much of the plot away. But basically its about an assasination attempt on Adolf Hitler. (i won't tell you if they are succesful) I really enjoyed the film. Very well done, well acted, well directed, and i actually didn't mind Cruise in the lead role. He did a good job, but he was out of place next to a great cast of british actors.(with british accents, which was a bit odd as they were all playing german officers)

stay tuned for more reviews,

oh and i went for a ride today, it was cold and windy but the roads were clear which was nice. \
