5***** Fabulous - D0 what ever you can to get to this movie.
The best movie I have seen this year is Departures. This film from Japan received the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2009 Oscars. This movie touched me on so many levels. Due to circumstances, a young man takes a job working with families that have a death in the family. Do not miss this movie. 5*****. Out in DVD this month.
The only other 5***** film I saw was Avatar. Still in theaters, don't miss this colorful creative movie.
4**** movies include District 9, Hurt locker, Where The Wild Things Are, Up, Blind Side, Invictus, Inglorious Bastard, A Serious Man.
Another movie that I really liked was the Michael Jackson movie. Although never a great fan, I always liked his lyrics and sound. This movie illustrated how great he really was.
