My viewing habits have changed over the years but not my love for movies. Now 90% of the movies I see are via my Netflix membership or on a television channel. I rarely venture out to a movie theater. I did go so see The Descendants a couple of weeks ago. My first reaction made me miss living in Hawaii, the scenes were beautiful, second, George Clooney is almost always great to look at, whether he opens his mouth or not. He performed some comedic moves in this picture that were great. Most of my friends that I know will probably love this movie, I will list it as "a movie I liked", too slow/dragging at times for me - but over all I give it a strong B.
An A-List movie for me is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - the original Swedish version, not the recently released Hollywood version.
But I am pleased that there is a goodly number of films being offered up - there will no doubt be a number that will rise to the top like delicious, rich cream.
