Ok, granted, these are not what you would call blockbusters or 50 million dollar movies, but believe me these are classics (at least they are to me). In different ways these movies touch on several aspects of human experience such as fear, trust, and hope. Some of these will keep you glued to your screen wondering what’s next, while others may not fit your fancy. Since Christmas break is so short, you wanna make sure you get good movies, right? I mean, you don’t wanna have to get Titanic out of the closet again, do ya? Hence, it is my duty to present you with three great movies I have seen. Let’s start with one today and the others will follow. Why is it my duty? Well, if you’re eclectic as I and wish to expand your movie horizon, then it will be your duty as well to watch them. Well, not really, but you get the point. Ok, so here is the nominee for best movie in 2001…. oh wait, 2001 is past. Oh, did I tell you that these are not new releases? Hold on, please don’t delete this e-mail yet. Give me a chance, come on?
Alrighty then, let’s start with out first winner. Movie #1– Let’s start with a revenge thriller! I know, I know, you’ve seen hundreds of these before. Bad guy kills good girl; good girl’s boyfriend gets mad and then kills bad guy who killed good girlfriend…or something like that. Well, let’s just say this movie plays with your mind a bit. Yep. This movie actually involves your mind. Let’s just say this one is kinda like a revenge thriller that interacts with your intellect. Oh, don’t even try to guess. I did, but it didn’t work. So I had to wait until the end of the movie to know what happened. By the way, make sure you don’t watch this thriller with someone who has seen it before. Let’s just say they have a tendency to ruin your active mind. So, anyway, I am referring to: MEMENTO (R). Oh, don’t worry; I won’t give you any hints about it either. I will wait for you to tell me what you thought about it.
Warning: Since Hollywood is not concerned about pleasing the average household with wholesome Sunday School language (neither do I think it should; leave that up to Disney), there is…let’s see…hmmm… oh yes, violence, language, and some drug content. At least I warned you.
