Movie Blabber.

October 27, 2008

We finally saw No Country For Old Men last night (I think I've mentioned we are usually at least a year or more behind on movies). We were both hooked from the fist 30 seconds. Great character study, so intense, beautiful cinematography (especially the stark, barren, shockingly beautiful West Texas scenes). Gotta love the Coen brothers.

I really want to see Burn After Reading. Maybe, just maybe, we could get to the theater to see it..... Check out the super cool movie poster. So. Very. Cool.

  1. I'm DYING to see Burn After Reading too, and the theater would be so much better than a DVD. I'm really into Tilda Swinton these days. Because of her acting but also because of her name. Makes me wonder if my Matilda will go by that some day.

  2. I just saw Burn After Reading (not sure if thatss way late, b/c in Europe we get most things later) and it was fantastic. So Coen and so funny. But Coen Funny. ; )

  3. I'm with you on wanting to see this one too! I adore the Coen brothers, and the fact that it has Brad in it is the (very handsome!) icing on the cake!

  4. We just saw Burn After Reading. I'm a tough movie critic. Time is prescious so it has to really be good to get a winning endorsement from me. The cast was great and I think it was classic Coen Bros. It was ok. Not superb ib my book but ok.

    Let me know what you think. Maybe I am just a bad movie girl.

  5. We have a toddler so my husband and I rarely go out for a movie. We were very disappointed with Burn After Reading. They just seemed to be trying too hard - acting wise. We have liked most Coen brother movies and we really liked No Country for Old Men. I would recommend saving your kids-free time for another movie.

    I also wanted to say thanks for your comments on my blog. I just discovered them the other day. I'm honored that someone with such a great blog left a comment for me. Your little ones are adorable. I love your insights on everyday family life and your sense of style is an inspiration.

  6. I think Burn After Reading looks fun, but it got pretty mixed reviews. Maybe you can come over and watch it on the jumbo-tron. ;-) I thought No Country for Old Men was ok, but it was just such a g-damn downer. And that hair. I love him but that hair just killed me.

  7. I feel your movie pain, so seldom do I get to one and feel that I am late, did get to see "Rachel's getting married" and thought it was good. A depressing sad good.

  8. The characters were great in Burn After Reading, but I was shocked at how much violence was in the movie. Overall it was funny and good, but not amazing.

  9. I have to agree with a few of the comments; I definitely love the Coens but Burn after Reading was sub-par. It had it's moments though of hilarity but mostly not a fan. That poster is awesome though!
