Since I moved to California or got divorced, or started living with someone of a different culture, Christmas has become something different for me. While I realize it is the birth of Jesus Christ and that is what we should truly be celebrating, a place in my mind full of Christmas memories helps me to remember it is also about family.
Every year around this time I get excited and attempt to see all of the movies that are nominated for Best Picture. I have involved my family in this endeavor as well when possible. There have been several that my children will never see , “There Will Be Blood” as an example. I loved that movie by the way.
I take my cue from the Golden Globes nominations and start from there. There are 5 movies nominations and from those I have seen 4. Here they are and also my thoughts on each of them.
Black Swan: I liked this flick but didn’t love it. It was OK
