Cold Mountain

OK, after I left the dentist's office today, followin' a harrowin' two and a half hours of sittin' in the chair, I did what I usually do, since I have to drive almost 90 minutes and 75 miles just to get there, I drove across the street and watched a movie. It was just about 5:00 pm when I left the dentist's office and the only movie startin' within two hours was one called Cold Mountain. I had looked through the posters as I walked up toward the ticket box and there was really nothin' on the poster to tell me anythin' about what this movie was about. The only thing that interested me at all was that Renée Zellweger was in it, and those of ya'll who are regular readers know I think Renée Zellweger is the cat's meow.

So I walked up just as some lady had asked for a ticket to see the movie, and as she turned, I said I have not heard anythin' 'bout this movie. She said she had heard it was well written. I thought, OK, Renée Zellweger and a good script, why not. I bought my ticket and in I went.

The lady was right. The movie has a great script. It had a feel to it a lot like Legends of the Fall, in my opinion. It was almost 3 hours long, without any intermission, but it did not drag along. I found the movie very entertainin' and I think it will draw a lot of movie award nominations. In my opinion, Renée Zellweger will be deservin' an award for her role. I am tellin' ya, both she and Nicole Kidman did wonderful jobs. My only regret in the whole movie was that Renée's character did not come around until after half the movie was over. Other than that, I found nothin' to pick on. Go see it. It is definitely worth the price of admission.
