This is a 2011 movie about a parallel Earth that appears in the sky one night. It’s explained by orbits behind the sun. The movie never actually goes to the other Earth so that’s a bit disappointing. It’s mostly a story about the decisions and mistakes we make in life. We follow the life of a young woman who is living with the consequences of her actions. The ending isn’t very exciting but I enjoyed it because they don’t just … Continue reading
I watched The Immortals for the first time with my husband on DVD the other evening; neither of us were terribly impressed.

It’s one of those movies you will enjoy watching again and again. I do.

While I loved the film I’m a little reticent to recommend it widely but, if you love old movies, great performances, and aren’t afraid of silence, it’s a great movie. The movie is set at the time in Hollywood’s history when talkies were created and the old silent stars were being dismissed for fresher … Continue reading
