With a new baby we watch a lot of movies. I thought I'd give you a quick list and simple review of the things I've watched recently that have been good enough for a recommendation.
Netflix watch instantly:
True Grit: This is the new one which I've watched this over and over again. Love it.
Thor: You should especially watch this if you've seen or plan on seeing The Avengers. Parts that did not take place on Earth were a little more boring but I liked the rest.
Being Elmo: This was really interesting and very, very sweet. I have a whole new appreciation for Elmo, which is nice because that puppet can drive me crazy sometimes.
The Conspirator: Based on actual events surrounding Abraham Lincoln's assassination. I thought the acting, costumes, and story were all good.
The Way: I thought it was a great representation of Catholicism and the people who practice it, each with our own little history, sin, and burden, all looking for forgiveness and peace.
Machine Gun Preacher: The beginning was really tough for me to watch, as were various scenes of violence, but an amazing story overall.
Morning Glory: Cute, funny, light-hearted. Even Travis liked this chick flick.
Captain America: Thought I wouldn't like it but loved it. Another must if you're going to watch The Avengers.
Safe House: Didn't think I'd like it one bit because of the violence. I was wrong. Also, I totally prefer Ryan Reynolds to Ryan Gosling. Any day.
