    Closure 2013

    ★★★★ Added

    I had to keep pausing the end leaving the room and coming back. The adopted daughter finally meeting her birth family was too intense. I really can't overstate how amazing the adoptive family seems in that they helped this young woman with her journey to find her birth mother, and that they took these children in and did such a wonderful job. You can just feel their warmth emanate from the screen. Great documentary that makes you ponder forgiveness and its transformative power.

    The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him 2013

    ★★½ Added

    I had no idea that there were two films to this "him" and "her" from each characters perspective. I watched "him" thinking I like this enough, but its missing more of what the woman was doing while they were apart. I thought she might have been cheating with his dad to be honest. Now I guess we'll see what she was up to. I think seeing it as a whole might make me like "Him" better but I'm not sure if it should.

    While watching this I kept thinking
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    Had not seen in awhile and was doing a comparison of which is better part 1 or 2.

    The first thing that came as a surprise for me this time was, I spotted an actor and actress that also appeared In Near Dark. I Guess Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron were sharing more than a bed!

    Linda Freaking Hamilton Rocks in here. <---Captain obvious statement.…

    Argo 2012

    ★★★★½ Added 3

    Really intense film. This is a lesson in how to ramp up the tension that everyone should study.

    Now I have to see more of Ben Afflecks films.

    Besides taking abit to set everything up I can't really find any flaws in this movie. The airport scene was my favorite, especially when the guy is explaining to the soldier what the Argo movie will be about.

    I had been worried about a terrible depiction of the Iranian people in here…
