5 great films I saw in OctoberOctober 22, 2009 at 2:35 pm | Posted in Film | 2 Comments
1. My Man Godfrey (1936)
So, I finally got to watch this film after putting it on the back burner for so long. I have to say that something was definitely wrong with me for waiting so long – the film is hilarious! I’m going to definitely expand my commentary on this film some other time!
2. Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)
I actually watched Kramer vs. Kramer, because I sort of have this personal goal to watch all of Dustin Hoffman’s films – from the good to the bad. But, this is definitely one of his BEST roles (and one of Meryl Streep’s best, too!). I totally cried like a baby, at the end of the film.
3. Rose Marie (1936)
I was watching TCM on a lazy afternoon, and this charming film came on. I didn’t expect much, but I totally enjoyed this film. This is another one I hope to expand on when I get the time!
4. The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947)
Though some might call me crazy, I am NOT a huge Cary Grant fan. Having said that, I found him so irresistible in this film. Oddly, I didn’t find Myrna Loy’s role too exciting, but teen Shirley Temple made up for it!
5. Where the Wild Things Are (2009)
What can I say about this? This children’s picture book was always one of my favorites, but since it only consists of ten sentences, I could not imagine how they were going to translate it onto the big screen. Thank God for talented writers, because the film was amazing.
Seriously, I know I have been lacking in my posts, but I’ve been terribly frustrated with midterms. I should have more time for this blog in a couple weeks!
