Another Epic Movie

I was lucky enough to see the new movie with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, called Australia. It was quite wonderful. Especially engaging was the little Aboriginal boy who played Nallah(sp?).

The scenery, the romance, the sweeping countryside, everything made this story a modern epic along the lines of Gone With the Wind. Extremely enjoyable.

Also, as an aside, I went to see Twilight for the second time and liked it even better the second time.

Hope you all found some time over the holidays to sneak in a movie or two (as well as the books we all love). If any really stood out, please let us know!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!

Twilight didn't disappoint!

Went to see Twilight last week, along with seven thousand giggling teenagers! It did not disappoint me.

Robert Pattinson played an excellent Edward. What teenage girl wouldn't fall for him? (Although he is slightly 'geeky' in real life interviews!)

Kirstin Steward did a great job as Bella. I loved that she seemed so small-town normal wearing work boots and big mitts. Very romantic yet thrilling movie. And the scenery was great too. Want to see it again!

Four star rating from me!
