127 hours

This guy James Franco – is a super cool actor. This movie is another true story and I want to now read the book.

Utah, I have wanted to visit UTAH for a little bit but the movie is like an advertisement. Its an amazing story and is told very well. I wish I had watched the movie when it was released rather than on DVD.
He slips in and out of consciousness and this was very interesting to watch.

I would still categorize this movie in the clich├ęd  ART category but it was really good.
I did not get a chance to really hear the Rehman magic yet. I will check it out this weekend.

Did you all watch this movie?

Soul Surfer

Soul Surfer - I went to watch the movie, expecting to find, just another inspiring story.

Bethany Hamilton - I heard about this incredible girl only through this movie.

I thought it was an extra ordinary movie with an extra ordinary performance by AnnaSophia Robb.

There is this sequence in which Bethany is talking to her mentor (I am not sure thats what she is called) for the first time after she loses her hand to the shark and says trying to not cry ... "I am trying very hard to look at the big picture and not focus on the small things but I dont know how this could be what he planned. That this could be what he wanted for me." (he = god)
and she replies : "I dont know. I dont know how or why but I have to believe that there is some good that will come out of this."

Its a very moving movie and I loved it.

I still cannot believe that it is a true story.
