Crop And Save
Holiday Heart (2000)
Never even knew this movie existed!!!
Well, I found this on BET today. It was on at 1pm. Channel surfing saves the day again. I thought Ving Rhames was very good in the part. Not all drag queens are successful because they are beautiful; a lot of their success comes from their humor and personality coming thru with a touch of outrageousness. Charlie Brown and Divine come to mind. Alfre Woodard was gold like always; very, very good portrayal of a crack addict. The actress who played the daughter was really good too. I kind of had a hate/love feeling about Silas. I think the script had some holes but overall a very good story. I would prefer to see it unedited as I think all the editing they did took some of the edge out of the picture. I felt good at the end even though it was somewhat tragic. I think this picture did what it was supposed to; it was supposed to make you care about the characters and I did by the end.
brad pitt at one of his very best
I really enjoyed this movie.
I did not go to see it at the theatre because of the run time. Same goes for The Assassination(sp?)of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford; really long movies both. Just watched both of these on cable movie channels today. Both performances were Brad Pitts' best.
There is plenty to read about the characters and plot out there; so I won't go over it yet again. The women in the movie were great; Cate Blanchette, Taraji P Hinson and Tilda Swinton. Great performances all.
But this movie reminded me of why, from the very first time I saw Brad Pitt on the big screen(Thelma and Louise), I knew he was going to be a HUGE STAR. I remember saying to friends that he was going to be the next Robert Redford.
This was WAY before Jennifer and Angelina; he was still pure. And I have to admit, all the hype that went along with being involved with those women seemed to take away from his acting talents. Over exposure, I guess, kind of did it for me taking him seriously as an actor.
Him being so good looking and talented made me start to appreciate his efforts again as he is maturing like a fine wine; better with age.
Brad brings such tenderness to this part; his narration of the film was just as moving as the acting. I hope he continues to make great choices like this in years to come; women be damned!

I usually can't stand Kevin Costner
He was really good in this. There is hope for him yet. I was pleasantly surprised. I was very intrigued when I saw that he was playing a serial killer. I have never paid movie prices to see any of his films. I always waited for them to come on cable or TV and only watched because there was nothing else on. I am so glad he played against type for once in his life. He always plays heroes and regular guys. I am probably the only person on earth who has not seen Dances with Wolves, but I went to the movies to see this. It was well worth the money. The ending made me jump out of my seat and I loved it! YES! I would definitely be interested in seeing a sequel. (I don't think there is a spoiler here but just in case)
