I really have to talk about this movie because it seems like no one else is!
I haven't read a single post about it on anyone's blog.
I went into it not knowing anything about it, except that it was a western, and Matt Damon was in it.
And let me tell you, that was enough for me to be super-excited about seeing it.
It was a very unusual movie... the kind of movie that critics love and some audience don't.
It's full of wide, star-covered skies, creaking leather, chaps, and noisy spurs.
What else could a girl want?
Well, actually, us female-types are inevitably going to be a little disappointed at the non-fairy-tale ending.
I told you that because if you don't expect the ending to be perfect,
you won't be indignant when it happens.
Jeff Bridges made me love him...a considerable feat,
considering my vague grudge against him for his personality in various other movies I've seen him in.
Matt Damon's role was unusual for him and made me happy.
His character's name is LaBoeuf, pronounced la-BEEF.
Which makes me laugh. We promptly named one of our kittens LaBoeuf.
So... go and see it. Ok? And then hurry back and tell me what you thought of it. : )
