The last good movie I saw was Detachment.

 


Detachment is a chronicle of one month in the lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students through the eyes of a substitute teacher named Henry Barthes (Adrien Brody). Barthes' method of imparting vital knowledge to his temporary students is interrupted by the arrival of three women in his life – the damaged and naive prostitute Erica (Sami Gayle), a fellow teacher (Christina Hendricks) and a troubled teen named Meredith (Betty Kaye). These women all have profound effects on Barthes' life, forcing him to both re-discover aspects of his own personality, and to come to terms with both the tragic suicide of his mother and the impending death of his grandfather. The film is punctuated with flashbacks of scenes of Barthes' young childhood and his mother's suicide. Sub-plots include the struggles of Dr Parker (Lucy Liu) within her role as the school counselor, and the painful torment of Principal Dearden (Marcia Gay Harden) who faces her dismissal as head of this deeply flawed school.

I highly recommend it if you like these types of movies.

Mud, starring Matthew McConaughey, was the last one I saw.  My favorite Starbucks barista (if only I were like 15 years younger!!!!) recommended it to me, and I finally had the chance over the past weekend to watch it.  It was really good!!!!

I saw that not to long ago. It was just ok to me. Not sure what it was, just didn't think it was as good as some made it out to be.  It wasn't bad though. Glad you enjoyed it.

I took my sons to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 the other day. It was okay. I never saw the first one.

I watched Seven Psychopaths on tv the other day. That was pretty good.

I just haven't had the patience for movies lately. So, I've been watching shows instead. Of course, I just finished OITB last week and I'm on the prowl for my next show.

it wasn't his best movie, but I liked that kid a lot. I think he did a great job.
