Nine and Crazy Heart

I just saw these two movies. I've been wanting to see them for a while and my husband and I finally found time these past two days to see them. I loved "Nine", of course I am a totally biased viewer because I'm a sucker for Broadway musicals. The dancing, the directing, the costumes, the songs, the story, everything was highly entertaining. Although we were interrupted a billion times by the kids and therefore the movie ended up being 4 hours instead of two!! Yet I still enjoyed it, and Daniel Day Lewis who I already thought was an amazing actor, really took his talents to new levels. All of them really showed the amazing diversity of their abilities from Judi Dench to Penelope Cruz. So clearly, if you all haven't figured it out by now. That's a thumbs up for me :)I recommend this one. So much fun.
Two days ago, I saw Crazy heart, I downloaded it from iTunes because it got an academy award for best actor and best song. I also really like Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal. I love the song, and I think Jeff Bridges did a great job at portraying the character. Is it oscar worthy? Well, obviously they thought so. It's a nice story, it's a bit slow, and you get distracted easily. Overall, not too depressing and not too much fun either.
