Last night, I watched The Iron lady with Meryl Streep. The reviews for the movie had been a little sour, saying that Streep was the only thing worthwhile about the movie.
Well, that is not true. Yeah, the movie was a bit sentimental and it did whitewash Thatcher a little but it reminded me in some ways of the movie The Queen starring Helen Mirren.
Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep are enormously famous and are probably the best English speaking actresses of my generation. We know who they are. Certainly, Queen Elizabeth and Margaret Thatcher are among the best known women of the 20th, and 21st, centuries. Neither Mirren or Streep resemble the women they portrayed, physically or in terms of personality. Both performances were amazing.
To play a women as familiar as Liz Two and Margaret Thatcher, Milk Snatcher is quite a feat.
After The Iron LAdy was over, I felt compelled to learn more about Thatcher and her family. I looked them up.
Furthermore, the movie shed some light on dementia.
For me, it was a worthwhile way to spend an evening.

Matthew McConaughey is in his personal Renaissance!

Mud (2012): Easily the best performance I seen from him.

@Rockhead,
An impressive directorial debut by Clint Eastwood's daughter Alison.
A stunning score by Eastwood's son, Kyle.
Talk about your talented genes.
I also enjoyed Kyle's score for Letters From Iwo Jima which I watched last night.
Maybe as depressing as Rails And Ties.

@plainoldme,
I also watched The Iron Lady last week. Pretty boring stuff. I concede Streep was the best part of the movie but I wouldn't compare the film to The Queen and Helen Mirren's Oscar winning role. Helen Mirren gave a sympathy inducing performance whereas I felt irritated throughout the movie by Streep's Thatcher.

I was curious about Alison Eastwood. Don't think she has done very much since that debut but was stymied by IMDb server problems: 404 errors et al.

@tsarstepan,
Terrible movie! I was so disappointed. This was a strong , powerful woman...she was depicted differently; more from the standpoint of Alzheimer's disease. That's a couple of hours I'll never get back.

A small Irish film called Parked (2010): Got a little misty eyed at the end.
Colm Meaney is quite an underutilized actor.

Some of the accents were a tad indecipherable at moments and there weren't any subtitles but the context was still obtainable from those brief moments.

The Wolf Of Wall Street.
Woo Hooo! I finally get Scorcese as a director.
Him and Leo make a good team.

Obsessed. On dvd.


Although, I'm obsessed with a mad man who refuses to understand. ((Not seriously speaking.))
