We saw Why Did I Get Married? on opening night. I have high hopes that Tyler Perry will add at least one seasoned screenwriter to his staff. His movie could have been SO good if it weren't for [fill in the blank here with the parts of the film that a good screenwriter would have re-written or edited out completely]. I've seen all his movies so far, and am sure I'll watch future flicks of his. Not so much because I think he's a great filmmaker, he's SO just OK, but how am I supposed to not watch a film with Gabrielle Union, or Idris Elba, or Janet other good black actors in the cast? Really. This latest installment was his best yet, so it has to get better from here.
We Own The Night was awesome. Joaquin Phoenix is such a great actor. Mark Wahlberg is Mark Wahlberg--hot and awesome. The only downside to the experience was that we went to see it at our new neighborhood theater and they didn't have the film set right for the screen. We saw mics almost touch the actors' foreheads all through the film and couldn't read any of the Russian-to-English subtitles. The manager was waiting outside the exit to give us all vouchers for a free show. We'll probably use them to go see Dan In Real Life or The Kingdom this weekend.
