A Bed, A Bug, & A Movie

Oh, and my laptop. I figured while I am stuck here dealing with the flu (any and all sympathy here is completely welcome,) I might as well watch some movies we rented. And, as in the past if I find something good, I pass it on to you.

May I present, Flawless, starring Demi Moore and Michael Caine.

It's a diamond heist movie. Surely we've seen those before. But this one is a little bit different. Maybe it's because I'm easily entertained when stuck in bed for 48 hours but I was held spellbound by the details. How was it done? Who was REALLY involved? What would happen next?

The actors did a good job. Michael Caine was a little bit laid back as the nightly janitor but maybe that was all part of the suspense. He never gave away much to the audience about why he wanted to be in on the heist. (Although Dear Hubs says he had it figured out.) Demi Moore I had doubts on simply because I haven't seen her in anything good lately. She did a great job with her steely reserve, playing the part of a woman executive working in a man's world with a building bitterness towards the huge diamond company she worked for.

I really enjoyed the 1960's setting, with it's period clothes, music, and scenery. Take me back to another time and take my mind off of being sick and you're at the top of my popcorn list. Well, at least pretty close to it.

I'd give it four (out of five) popcorns.

And for the first time on the blog, I'm adding Dear Hubs' vote to the mix....because he's never referred to a movie rating before as "popcorns" until now. How cute! Anyway, he gives it:

Five popcorns! That's big for Dear Hubs. He R-E-A-L-L-Y liked it. Must have been those tight pencil skirts Demi was wearing. Or, it's just that good.

Check it out and let me know what you think. Or, if you've seen it already or maybe a different movie this weekend, let me know now.

Aw Jillian, I hope that you feel better soon. I hadn't heard of that movie. I am not a movie/TV person. Every now and then I watch something but rarely.

Computer? ALWAYS!!!
