Leap Year

“May you never steal, lie or cheat.
But if you have to steal, then steal away my sorrows.
If you have to lie, then lie with me all the nights of our life.
If you have to cheat, then cheat death
 because I don’t want to live a day without you.”

I love Amy Adams. She's talented, smart and funny without trying hard to be all of the above. She can create chemistry between herself and her on-screen partner. I added a star for Matthew Goode, just because he is very... umm... "goode"-looking. Pun intended. It's not much of a movie since it's simple and predictable, but it is a feel-good chick-flick and if you like romantic comedy, expect some laughs and "aww..." moments. I love the location! It's very scenic and it reminded me of that longing to go to Ireland, thus adding another item to my bucketlist. =)

X-Men: First Class

The special effects were cool as expected. The acting was excellent-- special mention to the McAvoy-Fassbender bonding moment that made me cry. Kevin Bacon was, well, one of those villains I love to hate.

I am one of those who haven't read the graphic novel series, but watched the movies and grew up with the animated TV program. It was awesome seeing how it all began.
