I think calling it "Brilliant" might be a bit of a stretch, but I did enjoy my 8th film of 2014 today. The Trip to Italy has lovely scenery, an excellent soundtrack, and the food preparation and serving scenes were some of my favorites. As they drove along the Amalfi Coast I had lots of memories of the trip Mary Ann and I made there in 2008. I had some of the most enjoyable meals of my life on that trip.
Several weeks ago I saw my 7th film of 2014. My Old Lady had lovely scenes of Paris and while I wished the chemistry between Kevin Cline and Kristin Scott Thomas had been better I still liked it. It's hard not to like a movie with Maggie Smith in it.
This means I have 4 movies left to see in 2014 to meet my goal of 12 for the year which will be A LOT of movies for me. I feel like a card carrying member of the frequent movie-goer club. I already have slotted Pride for movie #9 and Tracks for movie #10. If you have seen something recently I must get to, do tell. I will add it to my list.
