this boy’s perspective

I had heard good things about this movie for many moon. I finally was able to stream it online for FREE!

WOW!

I laughed so hard during so many scenes once John Goodman came into the picture. He and Jeff Bridges played extremely well off each other…and then throw Steve Buscemi in and those three-way conversations had me roaring. I could identify with many of the lead characters’ attitudes which made it twice as relatable to me. The denouement: my family was a bowling family…NOSTALGIA! Yet, all the hilarity, I was brought to tears with emotion, as well.

The soundtrack was phenomenal…most stuff I had never heard before. Already found my favorite – Lujon by Henry Mancini – and downloaded it.

An experience.

Coincidence or Irony? The movie got better/funnier after my “green” medication arrived.

Now I understand how this has become a cult movie.

review

OMG! The scenery in this movie was so good that I could actually feel the wetness of the water from the river. INCREDIBLE! I did a little reading and discovered that while the scenery was based on actual data (from the United States Geological Survey), it was hand painted by artists.

As for the story…I literally cried three times.

Such a wonderful movie with a very touching story.
