The Beatles March 2, 2008

Matt and I watched Across the Universe last night and it inspired me to search for footage of The Beatles on You Tube. There isn’t as much as I thought there would be but I found some really cool stuff. Here are some of my favorites.

This is the trailor from Across the Universe. Very cool movie and the actors were amazing singers!

And…one of my favorite current performers, Brandi Carlile, singing the same song:

 

Holiday Movie Releases November 16, 2007

There are so many movies coming out around the holidays that I’d love to see:

1. The Golden Compass

It looks exciting, magical, and full of fun special effects.  The only downside is that Nicole Kidman is in it (I’m not a fan).

2. Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium

I love Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman.  This film also looks hilarious and also has great visual effects.

3. American Gangster

I don’t know, the previews just look really cool.  And Russell Crowe is one of my favorite actors.  Plus, it hits close to home due to the recent arrest of famous Philadelphia Drug Lord Ace Capone

4. Across the Universe

I’m not sure what to make of this film.  Matt and I saw a preview in the theater and it looked very interesting up until the end when things got a little trippy.  But it’s set to the music of the Beatles, so it at least has that going for it.

5. Elizabeth: The Golden Age

I love any movie set in this time period.  I still need to see the original Elizabeth movie, though.

6. August Rush

This movie just looks adorable.  And it revolves around music, which makes it sound even better.  Plus, the child actor, Freddie Highmore, was in Finding Neverland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

7. Enchanted

Patrick Dempsy is in it. 

8. Stephen King’s The Mist

I read this novella back in high school and since I am a die hard King fan, I feel obligated to see the film.  I probably should go back and read the book, though, because I don’t really like horror movies and I need to be prepared. 

The problem, is that movies are so expensive now, and I really just like watching them from my own home in my PJs, so I probably won’t go to the movies at all this season!  But these are all on my list.
