This week's pick, just in time for Valentine's Day, is Midnight in Paris. This is a Woody Allen film. I guess you either love him or hate him. Or maybe like me, you are somewhere in between. I like his flicks every once in a while. I could never watch a Woody Allen marathon. Too much whining, you know? But the stream of consciousness dialogue is also what makes his films so cool.
Midnight in Paris stars Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams. You will be enchanted by the Parisian scenes and time travel. Yes, time travel. If you sometimes feel as if you were meant to live in a previous time, this movie might strike a chord with you.
There is a message for us in the end, however. (An end that comes a bit suddenly, in my opinion, but you be the judge.)
Here you may find a link to my other quirky yet excellent picks for this time of year. (Just scroll down to the last paragraph for the list.) Enjoy!
