One More Kiss (1999)
One More Kiss engaged me from the start
This movie takes a hard look at life, love and death. Complacent people live lives of quiet desperation while days, months and years slip through their fingers without really being noticed. Sarah steps back into the humdrum lives of her father, ex-boyfriend Sam and his wife, and shakes up their lives forcing them all to take stock of what really matters. What really matters is to live each day as if it were your last -- to spread your arms wide and fly even though there is a real chance you will hit the ground hard. What would you do for love? Would you know how to meet death? Is your life ticking away? None of the characters is perfect nor are their actions always "moral" but they wrestle with their choices and make mistakes along the way. We can judge them and say we would be "better" people but does anyone know that unless faced with this movie's dilemma? And, yes, Gerard Butler is beautiful and touching as Sam, the man caught in the middle with everything to lose.
This movie rates high on my list of favorites from this talented actor and his thoughtful director.
The Game of Their Lives (2005)
Soccer Know-nothing loved this movie
If you enjoy soccer, you'll really like this movie about USA underdogs playing the Brits, the best in the world in 1950. The audience I was with consisted of adults and kids in soccer uniforms. The movie drew cheers and applause especially during the final confrontation. Gerard Butler as the great goalkeeper Frank Borghi really gives this movie heart and soul. The actors were chosen for their ability to actually play soccer so the game sequences are very realistic. Butler especially throws his body into a bone-crunching depiction of a goalkeeper with the heart of a lion.
You don't have to be know much about soccer to enjoy this movie. I highly recommend it to everyone who likes an exciting movie and wonderful acting. Three cheers!
Dear Frankie (2004)
A Dear Film
A touching modern day fairy tale about a deaf boy and his mother and the 'knight on a white horse' who comes into their lives. Excellent acting in a naturalistic style grounds this story in truth. Beautiful and heartfelt, a must see gem. Kudos to the Director and writer and all the actors. Especially poignant is Gerard Butler as the Stranger. His emotions shine in a handsome face that the camera loves. Humor abounds but it is the story that will pull you in and make you believe that dreams do come true in one way or another. The sound track is not intrusive but gently stirs the emotions as the action takes place on screen. Do yourself a favor and try to catch this indie film while you can.
