Ooh, Maraboo's Favorite Movie time of the Year!

Hello Sugarfoots!

Autumn has finally arrived and with it some marvelous movies...yay, at last-- enough of the light summer fare... and I'm only going to tell you about the movies I love -- if you want to go see a blah movie or read about're on your own...

So far my faves are:

"3:10 to Yuma" -- a yummy western with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale -- yee-haw! Russell plays the villain so charmingly and Christian Bale is so disarmingly gorgeous...**sigh**

"Lars & the Real Girl" - a beautiful human tale of an awkwardly-social guy played by the uber-talented Ryan Gosling who works out his issues with a lifesize doll (Bianca -- in a very subtle performance) -- great supporting cast includes Emily Mortimer and Patricia Clarkson - two of my fave gals who always deliver the goods!

"Eastern Promises" - a deliciously twisted tale of the Russian mob starring Mr. Renaissance Man himself Viggo Mortensen and directed by the ever-cool David Cronenberg

And my absolute favorite so far...

"Into the Wild" -- a freakin' masterpiece based on the Chris McCandless story and masterfully directed by Sean Penn (and yeah, I sat thru the entire 2 hour 20 minutes and some change and loved it all!) starring Emile Hirsch who has the chops like you wouldn't believe!

That's it for now...
More Maraboo's Favorite Movies of 2007 to come...

Gotta go and see some movies... gee, I hope there's some more good ones out there
