The Help

2011

Starring: Emma Stone, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer

I was finally able to watch The Help this weekend. It was well worth the wait. What a fantastic movie. I laughed, I teared up, I got angry at those racist white biatches… I think I felt everything The Help wanted me to feel.

Set in Mississippi in the ’60s, Skeeter (Stone) returns from college determined to become a writer. Her first job, the housekeeping column in the local paper.

Not long after being back Skeeter decides she wants to writes a book, from the black housekeepers perspective. You can only imagine what happens from here out…

I highly recommend The Help as a viewing choice. I personally plan on watching this again and possibly buying it. Absolutely fantastic and it deserved every award it received.

Crazy, Stupid, Love

2011Crazy, Stupid, Love

Starring: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone

Crazy, Stupid, Love is a fantastic movie!

Cal (Carell) and Emily (Moore) have three kids and are happily married, until Emily asks for a divorce. Cal, newly semi-single and depressed needs to find his his way in the singles scene after a 25-year hiatus, and Jacob (Gosling) is just the man for the job.

With Jacob’s help, new clothes and a few lessons on finding the manhood he lost many years ago Cal is on his way. First pickup, the ‘sexy-cute’ school teacher…

Seems after the first one it’s not so hard, Cal is pickin’ ’em up easy as pie… until his wing man goes AWOL. It all starts at the parent-teacher conference…

Watching the end of the parent-teacher scene a line from Dan in Real Life kept running through my head, “I am the murderer of love”. Now, if you haven’t seen it, you must.. It’s pretty good.

And by the way, it is.. Love… Crazy, Stupid that is..

Two thumbs way up.
