A Lot Like...

Every once and a while I stumble upon a somewhat unknown movie that I really enjoy watching. It is like finding a needle in a haystack because I have to sort through lots of crappy no-name movies before I find one that I enjoy. Tonight I would like to feature the movie A Lot Like Love. It is a somewhat sappy romance story that takes place over a period of about seven years. The thing that I like about the movie is that it seems to be very real at times. I find myself relating to the characters in the sense that they are searching for what lies ahead in life for them and the realization that your "plan" doesn't always work out how you...well...planned. If you are in the mood for something sappy and romantic I give my stamp of approval.

For other interesting movies to watch check out:

Stay - a twisted thriller that messes with your head...if you see the twist in the movie you are a genius
A History of Violence - very bloody and graphic but extremely well actually won awards at the Cannes Film Festival
Sliding Doors - a movie that have a very unique concept that makes you think "what if..."
