JAY DEAN’S BEST MOVIES OF 2011……
5. “WATER FOR ELEPHANTS”
i had ZERO intention of seeing this movie, but my beautiful bride talked me into it, and i’m so glad she did…what a wonderful story…although, i’m getting a bit tired of ROBERT PATTINSON and his “one facial expression.” but, it was a good movie.
okay, there have been some real dogs as far as horror movies in the past few years….THIS ONE SCARED THE BEJEEPERS OUT OF ME….the ending wasn’t everything i had hoped it would be, but, the rest of the movie definetly made up for it…this was one of those movies that we watched like three times, and had different people watching it with us each time….a scary good time…
3. “CRAZY STUPID LOVE”
i like STEVE CARRELL…so, i naturally wanted to see this movie…i just didn’t expect it to be as good as it was…even with a twist at the end….pretty funny movie….STEVE CARRELL is great, and RYAN GOSLING is terrific…no so much of a fan of JULIANNE MOORE, but MARISA TOMEI was, and is, stunningly beautiful…KEVIN BACON also had a funny role in the movie…..
2. “THE HELP”
i never read the book, because, frankly, i don’t like to read…but this movie was INCREDIBLE…it’s sad to think that something like this could happen in our nation’s history….there are some pretty sad events that have happened in the past….this is one of them…..GREAT MOVIE…
AND…MY NUMBER ONE MOVIE OF 2011….
i heard lots of good buzz on this movie…and it did not let me down…this is a movie that EVERY PARENT, especially EVERY FATHER should have to sit down and watch…yes, it has a “spiritual” background in the movie, but it has a lesson that we all need to hear and we all need to pay attention to…..when this one comes out in DVD, i HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT….
