Y'all know how I lurves me some Amy Adams...so, of course I had to see Big Eyes. The film is based on a true story, about the artist Margaret Keane (Adams). During the 50s and 60s, her husband (played by Christoph Waltz) claimed her work as his own, and she, feeling powerless, went along with the ruse...until she didn't go along anymore and - well, go see the movie. Amy acted well, as did Christoph - although I felt his performance was a reprise of his character in Water for Elephants. It was really good.
The Guardians of the Galaxy is based on the Marvel Comics superheroes of the same name. There's action, intrigue and comedy in this film about a group of misfits who band together to save the universe from certain destruction. The ensemble cast included Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benecio del Toro - just to name a few. It was good.
