  • The Butler 2013

    ★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2013

    The first thing I noticed about this movie is how beautifully shot it is and how every scene tries it's hardest to tug at your heart-strings. The characters are all pretty memorable, and Forest Whitaker's character is the kind of guy who you really want to see come out on top.

    The King's Speech is the true story of King George VI as he rose to the throne soon before the beginning of World War II and overcame a crippling stutter that threatened to forever cement him as the most embarrassing king in the history of England if it weren't for his brilliant speech therapist.

    I loved this film. I thought Colin Firth had a surprisingly believable stutter and played an amazing role overall. If anything he may have been a…
