The Age of Adaline (2015)

I could feel myself aging during this film. It just felt a little too long. I also think they put a few things in this to just make it sad for no reason. I do like Blake Lively and she is very pretty in this film, very classy. Harrison Ford was a huge surprise as I didn’t know he was in this when I started the movie. The subject matter of this film is very enthralling but it doesn’t go anywhere all that interesting. It’s all very sweet though, and despite the fact that I didn’t love it, I’ll say it is a fine movie, just nothing to write home about.

68/100

Youth (2015)

I feel young again after watching this film. I thought that Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel did a great job playing two friends who are both creative-types staying at a Swiss health resort. There are many other crazy characters including Caine’s daughter, played by Rachel Weisz, and Paul Dano as an actor staying at the resort. The biggest surprise was seeing Jane Fonda in this film. I wasn’t expecting to see her. I can’t describe to you why this movie is really good… I’m leaning toward good chemistry with the actors and nice writing, though. This isn’t normally a film I would like, since not much actually happens in it. It’s one of those “day in the life” films and I usually hate those. This movie is quite charming, and after seeing the codgers Caine and Keitel… it makes you feel good to be young. (or I guess if you are older reading this, you’ll sympathize with them). Check this out for an interesting experience.
