Movies I Watched Last Week 4

My Week With Marilyn (2011, Rating: R, Director: Simon Curtis) (My Rating: 3/5) My Week With Marilyn is based on a true story about a man named Colin Clark who worked as a third assistant director on "The Prince And The Showgirl", which starred Marilyn Monroe and Sir Lawrence Olivier. Good movie with great performances by Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh.

This Is Spinal Tap (1984, Rating: R, Director: Rob Reiner) (My Rating: 3.5/5) This Is Spinal Tap is a fake documentary about a fictional metal band called Spinal Tap. I'd been hearing that this movie was a classic for a long time, so my expectations might have been too high. I thought it was really funny, but not amazing. I'll probably watch it again sometime soon.

A Better Life

A Better Life (2011, Rating: PG-13, Director: Chris Weitz) (My Rating: 4/5) A Better Life is about an illegal immigrant named Carlos (Demian Bichir) who works as a gardener, and is trying to connect with his teenage son Luis (Jose Julian) and keep him from joining a gang. This is a great movie with a wonderful performance by Demian Bichir, who was deservedly nominated for a Best Actor Oscar.
