I saw a nice (and slightly strange!) movies this weekend called "The Go-Getter". Lou Taylor-Pucci is the lead who steals a car in an effort to find his long lost brother. The car belongs to Zooey Deschannel and the two start up a friendship by phone and eventually meet. It's a road movie and is sweet and charming and recommended.
I also liked "Nights In Rodanthe" mainly because of Diane Lane and Richard Gere. Plus the seaside scenery is quite nice to watch, not quite as much as Mr. Gere in his Levi's! It's a pretty staight-forward romance, one that's good to watch when you need some warm fuzzies.
Okay, with this one I'm probably going to get in trouble with some of you. "Dark Victory" with Bette Davis. They loooooved this movie at imdb.com. I liked it because the cast are talented and everyone behind the scenes are at the top of their game. And I know films of this time (1939) were melodramatic, but this one went too far over the top at time. There was one scene where Davis made me laugh out loud as her performance was so presposterous. I actually felt embarrased for her and wondered if this was her worst film performance (hadn't thought before now that Davis was capable of being bad!!). Plus I thought the ending was mighty stoopid. I did learn that her leading man was George Brent, who was her co-star 13 times! Didn't know there was that many Davis movies I had missed. In a completely thankless role is Humphrey Bogart as well as some upstart named Ronald Reagan. Can't think of any famous Ronald Regan films so not sure what ever happened to him.
