Some of the recent movies that I have given a thumbs up to...
1. From Hell ~ this is a gem that didn't do well at the box office, too bad. Johnny Depp was excellent in this latest take on Jack the Ripper.
2. The Lord of the Rings ~ I was completely surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie as I only went because my daughter wanted to see it. One of the best movies of last year and imo should of won the Oscar. What Star Wars of the 70s was is what Lord of the Rings is of the 00s.
3. Monster's Ball ~ this movie could of drifted off into a "racial" thing, but it didn't as it elogantly and quite sadly told the story of 2 very lonely people. Halle Barry was fabulous, so was Billy Bob.
4. Frailty ~ Whether or not you are a Christian or an athiest, you will walk away from this movies thinking and wondering, "Could this really happen to someone?" Excellent movie from first time director Bill Paxton. A loving father of 2 sons was told by an Angel from God to kill demons. Scary and violent, but not a blood bath like those stupid Jason movies.
