A Speech, A Hornet and Love w/ Drugs

So I recently watched a couple of movies, and instead a writing an entry about each one, I'm combining them into one entry. And because I don't have a lot to say about each. And here...we...go.

The King's Speech - A great movie. I would definitely recommend watching this movie based on the true story of King George VI and his speech impediment. He enlists the help of a speech therapist and an unlikely friendship begins. Colin Firth gives an unbelievable performance and its easy to see why he won the Oscar for best actor. Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter give great performances as well. If you do decide to watch it, I will give the advice that my friend Ellen gave me. Be wide awake because it's dry. I also don't think it should have won Best Picture or Best Original Screenplay. Best Actor yes, but not the others. But it's definitely worth watching.

The Green Hornet - This is a really funny movie. It could have been better but it was still really good. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the script for this remake of the old TV series. They did do it justice. The Green Hornet gets all the credit for all the hard work that Kato does. They made it a comedy and it was a funny movie. Definitely worth watching. Don't get your hopes up too much because it could have been better.

Love and Other Drugs - This movie surprised me. I thought it was going to be a regular love story movie and there was a lot more depth to it. Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway start a shaky relationship that neither one want to make serious and they wind up starting something that neither one are prepared for. It's a really good love story movie. Just make sure any little kids and your mothers are not watching with you because there is a lot of sex and Anne Hathaway shows all. Who-da-thunk right?

So there it is. Some good movies to check out. Leave comments if you did or did not like them if you want. Yes indeed!
