Erika Chats About What’s New in Theaters

tron legacyAs a movie blogger, I’ve gotta watch A LOT of films. A. LOT. So it’s extremely rare that I ever see something more than once — there’s just not enough time in the day/week/month/year. It’s kind of like how I never want to go on vacation to the same place twice. Aren’t there thousands more deserving locales than one human being will ever be able to step foot on? Just like there’s more books than one could ever read, more restaurants than one could ever try out, and on and on.

This is all a big build-up for a movie that I justified watching two times within a week recently. It’s not even my favorite film of the year, but it’s definitely one of the best… and it recently earned five Golden Globe nominations. I found it thoroughly entertaining and think it’s a shoo-in for Best Supporting Actor and Actress Oscar nods (and probably wins).  But you’ll have to click here and listen to my chat with KPAM’s Bob Miller in the Morning team to find out what it was — HA!

Speaking of Golden Globes, have you checked out redbox’s Movie Awards Game on Facebook yet?

You best get to it!

    HA! I listed to it :)

    Oh no, you too Erika? Blasting the original TRON even if well deserved! I am proud to have the original TRON in my SCI FI movie collection and still amazed by the technical achievement for that time. At least, Roger Ebert agrees with me!!!

    The only question about “your two in one week viewing movie” is how close did they follow the true story and how much liberty did Hollywood take in retelling the tale?

    I think they stuck pretty close to the original tale from everything I’ve read — that’s what makes it particularly intriguing — it’s almost too crazy to be believed. I think if anything was “enhanced” it was probably the comedic value of all of “the sisters” — which you will only understand once you see it.
