On my list of best classical romance movies for V-day is a popular, although relatively unknown to younger viewers, film featuring two classic stars, Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. The film is actually Hepburn’s first Hollywood movie–who actually had a poor audition but got the part due in to her unique looks. However, Peck is a well established mid-30s Hollywood star who was already featured in other classics such as Twelve o’Clock High.
I finally got around to watching Lakeview Terrace (alright, so the DVD came in the mail from BlockBuster). I have to say, the film leaves a few holes and wasn’t quite what I expected. Nonetheless, it stars Samuel L. Jackson. Samuel L. Jackson! So it can’t be all bad, right? Right!
Last night I watched the film Annapolis, a film which I have heard mixed reviews about. Honestly, it wasn’t anything that I was expecting. The trailer actually shows a battleship exploding and people jumping into a pool. Yeah, neither happens. So what does happen? Well, let’s go over the basics first.
