“Julie and Julia”

7.8

As a fellow blogger, I could relate to the intimidation of a blank screen. It’s always a joy to witness a story about someone finding a passion to devote even a portion of their life to. An added bonus to see it impact the lives of others. Watching these parallel tales unfold, trials and tribulations abound, to emerge triumphant and changed as people, is a beautifully inspiring effect a film can have. Never can go wrong with Amy Adams.

“The Rock”

8.3

Strap in and prepare for the movie Michael Bay was born to direct! Action from the very first frame to the last. Explosions and testosterone galore. All set to the backdrop of pure patriotism. One of Nicholas Cage’s finest performances, with just the right amount of manic. Sean Connery bringing an unrivaled level of sophistication and class to the screen. Ed Harris playing the ultimate bad guy you understand and sometimes almost root for. An epic film, from an epic time in American cinema.

Side note: they just don’t make trailers like this anymore.
