Finding Forrester by James W Ellison
Finding Forrester

SLH, January 15, 2007

Finding Forrester is about a young man who is running with a tough crowd. He desperately wants to fit in so does not want them to know that he is really smart and has desires of becoming a writer. One night he does something (very wrong) that will change his life forever. Surprisingly though - it actually changes his life for the better. I don't want to give anything away, but it's a good movie.

Sean Connery is in it and plays an excellent part. He plays a part unlike anything that I have seen him do i n the past. A great movie.

Journey of Natty Gann
Journey of Natty Gann

SLH, January 15, 2007

The Journey of Natty Gann is about a young girl whose father gets sent off to work in a logging camp in Washington state (they live back east). He can't find her to tell her he has to leave, so he leaves her a note and asks the landlady to watch after her. The movie takes place during the depression when times were hard and if you were told there was a job in another state and that the bus was leaving - you went. Some things happen and the landlady decides to turn her over to the state. The girl finds out and runs away. She heads to Washington state in search of her father. She meets a wolf along the way who becomes her traveling companion for a ways. She runs into a young man (a little older than she is) who helps her out when she is trying to jump on a train. Then later she runs into him again and they are traveling companions for awhile. She eventually gets to Washington state and is trying to locate her father (who thinks she is dead - her wallet was found in a train wreck).

Good movie. John Cusack plays the part of the young man who travels with her for awhile.

Calamity Jane
Calamity Jane

SLH, January 15, 2007

Calamity Jane has always been one of my favorites of old movies. I grew up watching Doris Day movies with my mom. And even though I don't care too much for musicals, there is a lot of singing and dancing in Calamity Jane. There is usually at least one or two singing or dance numbers in Doris Day movies.

Back to Calamity Jane. She plays a woman who is a tomboy. She dresses like a man, drinks like a man, shoots like a man, acts like a man. Then............another woman enters the scene and she sees what dressing and acting like a woman does to turn the heads of the two men she herself likes and decides that maybe she should dress and act more like a woman herself. Very funny old movie.

Runaway Bride
Runaway Bride

SLH, January 15, 2007

Runaway bride is a very funny movie. It's about a girl who - go figure - runs and leaves grooms at the alter.

A newspaper man writes an article about her without having all the facts. The movie is all about him trying to earn back the respect that he lost when not having all facts straight in his previous article. So, he goes to the hometown of this runaway bride (because she is about to get married again) and he wants to be there when she runs so he can get an exclusive story and vindicate his good name and honor.

And.........what happens as result of his trying to get this story is pretty funny. I don't want to give too much away - so, I will just say "watch the movie - it's funny".

Walk To Remember
Walk To Remember

SLH, January 15, 2007

This is a very good movie about a guy and a girl (seniors in high school). He's a "bad" kid and she's the preacher's daughter. He does something stupid and gets caught and it changes his whole life. The path that he takes after this incident is a very different one from the one that he was heading down previously. The movie shows how the love of a girl changes one young man's life forever. Very good movie. It's a make you think kind of movie and it is very emotional in parts. A tear jerker. But, it's also a feel good movie.
