There Will be Blood
Another Oscar mention was “There Will Be Blood.” This movie is brilliantly made & Daniel Day Lewis is brilliant but that’s where the brilliance ends.
I’ve never seen a more unhappy character as this oil tycoon and have never seen someone give so much up for money and power, no wonder he will die alone, a withering drunk.
This is a great history lesson on oil and I enjoyed that part of it, but it veered off on strange characters like the village man of the cloth who was definitely a weird one. I had a few hours to kill so I watched this for the cinematography and for Daniel Day Lewis’s Best Actor performance from the Oscars. Otherwise pass on it.
Alvin & the Chipmunks
Alvin and the Chipmunks is a really cute family movie that is great for kids because it teaches them some very important life lessons in an entertaining and fun way. The chipmunk’s tree is cut down in order to be a Christmas tree for a music company and that is where they find Dave (Jason Lee, from the T.V. show My Name is Earl). Over time, the chipmunks and Dave become a family but when a money hungry music producer comes by and tries to steal the boys is when the movie gets even more entertaining, with the Chipmunks singing some great songs. This was a very entertaining movie that you should watch with your children; they’ll love it!
