Formula For Fun [Nov. 28th, 2007|11:40 pm]

[The river is |calm pleased]

Our first library loan was a DVD, Last Holiday starring Queen Latifah. I liked her in Taxi (the movie), so I had hopes that this movie would also be good and I was not disappointed.

This is a formula movie that goes exactly according to plan. But Queen Latifah plays her part in such an enchanting way that she turns what could have been a dull formula film into a sweet and delightful story. I give this film four out of five stars. Put this one in your Netflix queue. You'll be glad you did.

(IMPORTANT WARNING FOR MOCOS -- SPOILER WARNING for the rest of you -- The plot involves a woman who is diagnosed with a condition that will be fatal if she doesn't get an expensive treatment that it turns out her insurance won't cover. But the film doesn't dwell on it.  I got sad for a moment, but it was OK.)

I'll look for it. It's really fun that you like movies now. You recommend movies I would probably not see otherwise. I missed your input when you didn't used to like them.

Glad you liked the movie ...

... now go and return it. And get a receipt. Those library people are shady. In fact, video yourself returning it.

what a name

You have to have talent to go around with a name like that. I like her. She is witty and smart and very likable. Glad you enjoyed the movie.

It is hard to get into the Christmas spirit here, with the sun shining down so brightly. The only white is the glare off the dust.

Glad you had a chance to use your library card.
