Walk the Line (2005)

Tonight my wife and I went to see Walk the Line on our date night.

Amazing performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon. They can sing.

On the whole, the movie is like most biopics: Mostly depressing.

Cash is a mesmerizing figure though so this movie has more to offer than others of it's kind.

And the music is great. It's mainly a love story. I'd much prefer to see a love story like Cinderella Man but both have their place.

My Rating: Rentable

BTW, on the subject of Cinderella Man, Paul Giamatti is quickly becoming the Don Cheadle* of non-beautiful actors.

*Don Cheadle: good in everything he's in, in fact, if he's in it, it's probably good.

Toni Collete is the Don Cheadle of actresses.

Speaking of Paul Giammati, did you see Sideways, and if so what did you think? I can't think of a movie I was more disappointed by, considering all the acclaim.

Sideways was dissapointing but I enjoyed parts of it greatly. Giammati was great as usual. The movie reminded me of hanging around with some of the guys I used to play football with. Some were irresponsible and immoral beyond comprehension but funny to be around. I think movies like Sideways appeal to people who don't have kids and aren't planning on having any, ever.
