Movie Review - "Lake House"

… a drama with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock.  Keanu is a construction contractor and architect.  Sandra is career-minded business woman.  Somehow they meet at a lake house and start a relationship.  That is, a relationship separated by time.  He is in the past; she is in the future.  Through a mailbox at the lake house they communicate with each other across time.

Interesting story-line that keeps the audience wondering.  Consider it a first-date movie for DVD.


Movie Review - "Scoop"

… a mystery-comedy with Woody Allen, Scarlett Johannsen, and Hugh Jackman.  Woody is a magician.  Scarlett is an aspiring news reporter.  Together they team up as pretend Father-Daughter to catch suspected murderer Hugh Jackman. 

Although Woody Allen directed the movie, it is not the typical Woody Allen type movie.  Funny remarks from Woody make it humorous.  Scarlett still looks curvaceous and sexy.  For the women, Hugh is the hunk.

Consider it another Independent Film Channel movie to watch on DVD and a first-date movie.

Movie Review - "Nacho Libre"

… a comedy with Jack Black playing a Catholic Brother at a Church-Orphanage.  To help the orphanage, Jack signs up for a wrestling contest.  If he wins, the orphans eat better.

Funny moving for Jack Black fans.  If you are not a fan, then give it a try. You may find yourself laughing by the movie's end.

Another first-date movie.

Movie Review - "A Good Woman"

… a drama with some twist and turns.  Helen Hunt plays a spinster.  Scarlett Johanssen is a newly wed whose husband appears to have a wavering eye.

A slow beginning that ends on a good note.  Consider it an Independent Film Channel movie to watch on DVD.

Another first-date movie.
