Black Swan

Black Swan

OK, so I was really excited to finally get to see this. I was warned that it may be a little 'strange', but I'm used to strange movies. It started out OK, then there were moments of boring, then for the last 30 minutes or so, it picked up and ended with a big question mark. Throughout the whole movie there were also moments of weirdness that I couldn't wrap my brain around, and I usually can see where a movie is going. I was so unsure as to what happened, I had to look on-line to figure out what this movie was really about.

The acting was very good. Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis were both stellar in their performances.

Once I read more about where the movie was going and what certain things meant, I understood it more, so I upped the stars. I was going to give it 2 out of 5 so now it is 3 out of 5, because I can see the idea behind it. Still NOT my favorite movie.


This past Sunday we had a bake sale to raise money for our choir robes. There were so many baked goods. We came out with $411 in profit. As you can see...the girls took over the sale.

I do want to see that movie.

Oh my gosh I really wanted to see Black Swan! That is really too bad that it wasn't better. I did think it had the potential to be a bomb.

Great job on the bake sale!

The acting is amazing, but the theme is intense. As a dancer, Natalie did pretty good pretending she was dancing. Mila however was totally awful and not remotely convincing. Her fake dancing was an abomination! (I am nit picky though because of my dance background).

As I already told you, I loved this movie. I thought it even had some really scary, jumpy moments. I remember remarking to my mom that I didn't know it was a horror movie. LOL! I see why Natalie Portman won the OSCAR...she was brilliant. Sorry you didn't like it as much as I did.

You know, I don't think I've personally talked to anyone who really liked it. Kings Speech on the other hand...
