Walk the Line and few others...

Saw "Walk the Line" with Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon tonight. *sniffle* very lovely love story and you can *see* the chemistry between the two as Johnny Cash and June Carter. The way Joaquin basked in Reese's presence and literally drank her in.. wow. goosebumps.

Sin City - I do have limits for violence.. Not since "City of Gods" have I been this dazed and wheeling from redundant violent scenes showing 40 different ways of this and that. ooh. I finally finished the movie with only about 20 minutes left the other night. My brother who read Frank Miller's comic books felt the movie was a faithful interpretation. I can definitely see the comic book elements and it worked.

Bride and Prejudice - a Bollywood version based on Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". Very nice movie.. the chemistry is not as intense as "walk the line" but a great story and how the original elements of the story is woven into an international scene. The lead character that we know as Elizabeth is a middle class Indian young woman and D'arcy, an American heir to a hotel empire. It's a great rental - highly recommended.

Kinsey - good good movie... a great reminder that communication is essential for sex.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - good movie except for the dragon scene. I appreciate that it's difficult to bring material from the book onto the movie screen and I think thus far, the third movie is the best film adaptation of all four books.

"arsenic and lace" is next... can't wait to see it...
