He's Just Not That Into You

First of all, I have to give Matt credit for going to this movie with me. It is most definitely a chick flick. I thought it was ok. There were scenes that were really slow moving, but it was generally entertaining. You cringe at the desperate actions of one girl as you curse the actions of a cheating husband. You definitely are invested in the lives of these men and women, but it just does not flow as well as it should. I thought that the acting was pretty good - especially Ginnifer Goodwin; I really liked her character. There are many lines in the movie that you have said time after time to your friends and you will laugh at the recognition. I had heard that the movie is depressing, but I do not think so at all. I thought the end was satisfying. I would recommend seeing other movies, such as "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Benjamin Button" before I would see this.

Oh. Go see the Wrestler. IMMEDIATELY. by far the best movie I've seen all year, sad but AMAZING.

also Let the Right One In was great, but its all subtitles so that turns some people away.

Hmm, I have been hesitant about seing the Wrestler because I heard it had a bad ending, but I may give it a shot!

I haven't heard of the other one... will check it out, thanks!
