trying to catch up

Now that the xmas season is over it's time for me to catch up a bit on my blogging. As you know i am a lover of movies, books and sports. Today i have a few recommendations of a few movies you may not of heard of.

The 1st is a Swedish movie entitled Let the right on in, it is a story that even if your not sure you like it, i guarantee it will stay with you awhile. It is a haunting story of a young boy who is a loner and bullied at school, that all changes when a new mysterious girl moves next door. the cinematography is quite beautiful and the story is well written and well acted. I cannot tell you anymore because i don't want to give away to much of the plot but i strongly recommend that you get the subtitles version and not the dubbed.

Now in honor of the new Runaways movies I'm going to recommend 4 music documentaries.
first off is Edgeplay a documentary about the Runaways with interviews with all the members except Joan Jett, i will admit i was a little disappointed by this, but it is still a compelling story about what they had to give up to follow their dreams.

the 2nd is called The Gits, about a rising punk band out of Seattle who when they are about to make it big tragedy strikes, It is poignant and brought me to tears many times and Milla's voice still echoes in my brain.

the 3rd is Joni Mitchell;Woman of Heart & Mind. i have always been a fan of Joni's & this is by far the best documentary of ever saw on her. There are interviews from her and many people through out her life. It dwells deeper into her life and soul then any other things I;ve read or seen about her, If you are a Joni Mitchell fan, I highly recommend this movie.

Now last but not least is Girl's Rock, about a rock camp in Portland Oregon, that teaches girls to play instruments, be individuals and to be strong. Great movie to show your young girls.
