Movie Madness Monday 12

Welcome back.  This is a weekly meme where bloggers can share their thoughts on movies.  Any movie review is welcome including, new releases, old favorites or new found favorites.

What I am Reviewing:

Lars and the Real Girl

Based on the synopsis, this movie seems silly and a farce but the seriousness of the topic made this movie engaging and thought provoking.  Lars anti-social and delusional and develops and unconventional relationship with a life size doll.

Rather than treat him as an outcast and isolate him, the community rallies around his love for the doll and incorporates her into the community.  Seriously, she has a busier social calendar than I do.

I admit that I was interested in this movie mainly due to Ryan Gosling.  During the filming of this movie, he learned to knit from some of the elderly ladies in the cast.  How adorable is that?  Aside from that, I was pleasantly surprised at how much this movie resounded with me.  Sometimes a story is better than it's cover and title.  I hope you check this movie out.

What I have reviewed:

Rise of the Guardians
Star Trek: Into Darkness
We're the Millers
Pitch Perfect
Die Hard
The Decoy Bride
Despicable Me 2
Monsters University
