Next Week's Pick: 'Moon' (2009)
The first time I saw this movie, I was left with a very strong feeling in my gut, a sort of pulsing, butterfly kind of feeling, and when i get that, I know that I REALLY love a movie.
There are some pretty funny moments in this movie, coupled with some pretty heart-wrenching moments (In my opinion anyways), that really made me feel for the characters and forge a connection to what was going on in the movie.
I don't want to give anything away, but like i said in the other thread, there are some similarities between this movie, and "Life As A House", with the whole Father/Son/Mother relationship and the sort of, 'discovering who you are' kind of thing. That being said, they are quite different, and I think "Imaginary Heroes" is a bit darker, not in terms of the subject matter, but the overall tone in the way the story has been told.
I don't know about you guys, but I personally have NEVER seen an Emile Hirsch movie that I did not love. Granted, I still have not seen all his movies (I have about 3 more to go), but seriously, the guy knows how to pick his roles. And Sigourney Weaver is just fantastic in this.
And finally, Dave, I have no idea where to get links for this movie. LOL Also, what is next weeks pick, so we can give some advance notice again.
