4/5 Robots: It's Colin Firth

I am a very huge fan of the Oscars and Awards seasons, so as the Academy Awards approach I have been going to see more and more of the nominated films. Tonight I saw The King's Speech, and I was pleasantly surprised. The film is about King George VI and his rise from stammering Prince to eloquent King, aided by a very peculiar man.

Movie Review:
Overall the Movie was quite satisfactory. It was a talkey movie more than anything, dealing with the characterizations of two men. I felt that it is a must see movie of the year, but with that said...I'm not quite sure I would see it again. Yes, the performances given (especially by Colin Firth) were Oscar worthy, but the overall movie did have some slow moments. For me, it wasn't a laugh out loud funny film, but the crowd seemed keen on the humor. Maybe I ate something bad, maybe some gnomes stole my funny bone, or maybe I just didn't think it that laughable. Whatever  the cause, the audience definitely was taking something that I wasn't on. When I left the theater  I knew that Colin Firth had stolen the show. I was convinced from the moment he opened his mouth that he was King George VI. And more than that, every time he tried to utter a word I felt his nerves, torment, and embarrassment cascading throughout my own body. His performance is a valid reason to go and see the movie. There are some slower parts to the film, and for this reason I wouldn't probably ever see it again. Overall, The King's Speech deserves a solid 4 robots on my scale, and by the clapping from the audience when the credits rolled, I would safely assume they too would rank it as such.

New Blog dedicated to FILM and BOOK reviews!

Hello aliens, cowboys, monsters, and humans!

My name is Krista and I have devoted my semi-awesome life to attempting at understanding the world we live in. While the journey has been littered with nonsense and the occasional gnome searching, I have found that film and books are the true route to a good healthy cupcake and sunshined filled life. While my tastes in both are subjective, I do love watching all different kinds of films. However, recreational readings seems to be a bit harder because of my pygmy sized attention span and the diabolical force to read books that I hate in college. So I am much more of a connoisseur in film and music than books, but I do enjoy YA novels of all sorts when I have free time. I hope you all (meaning the followers who have somehow landed on this blog in an attempt to search for bigger names written in big glass light bulbs that have the inability to burst...and yet decided that my name written in mechanical pencil is worth their time) ENJOY THE BLOG!
