The Holiday (2006)
The Perfect Holiday Gift!!
This movie totally exceeded my expectations. In fact, I write this after having gone to see it for the second time. The story has something for everyone...heartbreak for those of us who get bruised in love...excitement for those of us who seek another world...struggle and redemption...winter in England...summer in sunny California...two amazing female leads - a high-energy, high-powered girl's girl, and a caring, romantic soul-sister - two wonderful male leads - a devilishly handsome older brother, and my favorite character, a zany and adorable film-score composer - ...plus some more, including a fantastic performance by a seasoned Hollywood veteran, and a great soundtrack. This is one you don't want to miss, and you may even feel like you've gone on your own vacation, as I did.
Step Up (2006)
Step Up Steps It Up More Than A Notch
As with any dance movie, there is a little bit of the dream element happening. The story inevitably involves some sort of rags-to-riches aspect, hopefully at least one spicy character, and the music and moves to back the threat. Step Up has it all, and also showcases enormously palpable chemistry between the two lead characters. The movie not only oozes sex appeal, but sends the viewer to a universe where the music is funky and edgy, the characters all represent in some way and rescue each other, and one can truly step up to a level of self-actualization. It's the kind of place this viewer would like to escape to every once in a while, and tear up the dance floor the way the characters in the movie do, with the same style, passion and aplomb. If dance movies are your thing, you won't want to miss this one. And if they're not, you might just feel a spark through your veins this time around.
