Follow-up - Another Movie Review...

As I said in my previous post. I spent the weekend cat/house-sitting for a film critic who happened to have a stack of screener DVDs. So, I watched as many as I could (two). Last post I talked about Beasts of the Southern Wild. Today, it was a choice between Silver Linings Playbook and Exotic Marigold Hotel. I wanted to read the synopses and then decide, but the problem with screener DVDs apparently is that they don't have synopses - instead they just have a bunch of reviews "Cinematic Gold!" "Comedic Genius!" "Jennifer Lawrence is amazing" "Maggie Smith continues to be awesome." Which really doesn't tell you anything about the films at all really...

Both movies seemed to be toted as comedies though...So, I asked myself "am I in a British sort of mood or an American sort of mood?" I decided on American, just because the British usually require my full concentration and I wasn't sure I was up for that..
