Mirror Mirror was absolutely ridiculous! I sat through the whole movie just shaking my head wondering why I was still watching it.

I have to give props to Julia portraying the evil Queen, she did so in a spectacular fashion. Her facial expressions were top notch.

Everything else… just plain crap.

I’m giving this movie three steaming piles of doggie poo.

Larry Crowne

2011Larry Crowne

Starring: Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Sarah Mahoney

I really liked Larry Crowne. I’d probably watch it again.

Larry (Hanks) has just been ‘downsized’ from his job for not having a college degree and therefore no growth potential.

In order to make sure that doesn’t happen in his next job he heads to the community college. There he takes several courses, one of which is a class on public speaking taught by Mercedes Tainot (Roberts).

Mercedes has lost the passion in her marriage as well as the passion for teaching, until she begins her class with Larry.

Watch and see how Larry overcomes the life changes of unemployment, school and some new friends. Does Mercedes become one of his friends or just stay his teacher? Does Larry thrive in his new life? Watch and see.
