I only have a few - Swingblade, Matilda, Napolean Dynamite, Shawshank Redemption (I love listening to Morgan Freeman's voice in the narration - it's so soothing and I love the words he speaks - I'm not a huge Stephen King fan, but in this case, I think he's written beautifully in this screenplay - I don't know if it's the same in the novella by the same name).
But I've got a new one now - Crazy Heart. I missed it in the theatre, so I just rented it yesterday - and 'WOW!' I was blown away by Jeff Bridge's portrayal of Bad Blake- he definitely deserved that Oscar he got.
And the biggest surprise was the singing. Colin Ferrel and Jeff Bridges did their own singing! Talk about multi-talented. I'm going today to return the movie and buy the soundtrack.
*Noted too that there was a little tribute to Billy Joe Shaver. His maternal familial line married into my paternal familial line way, way, way back when, so even if he wasn't a great singer/songwriter, I'd have a special place in my heart for him. They cameoed one of my favorite songs by him:
In The Line Of Fire
