More Than A Game (or the LeBron James story)- Now I am a sucker for all basketball movie. Especially the documentaries like Hoop Dreams and The Heart of the Game. Jeff sat me down a few nights ago and had me watch the LeBron James documentary that came out recently and of course I loved it. It's a story about LeBron James and his 4 best friends sticking together through thick and thin to try and win as many national titles as they can from 5 grade till senior year. It's incredible to watch a group of people so driven and committed to the same goal. It really aspires me to work hard in everything I do.
Moonstruck- I can't believe it took me so long to see this film. It's a great movie. Say what you will about Nicolas Cage but there are certain films out there that he is just outstanding in and this is one of them. He brings such a uniqueness, almost an oddity to his line deliveries but it works so well for him and makes me laugh so hard. Cher does a great job as well. It's just a wonderful, fun-loving film.
Bullets Over Broadway- This is Jeff's favorite Woody Allen movie and I'm going to go ahead and say I think it's mine as well. What a gem! Outstanding performances by the whole cast and of course I'm a sucker for movies dealing with the theatre. I love Dianne Wiest and Jennifer Tilly but my favorite actor was Jim Broadbent as Warren Purcell the stage actor who couldn't stop eating. Every time he was caught noshing on something or would exclaim "I'm famished!" before devouring everything in sight I died of laughter. The script is absolute perfection.
