Oh Mamma Mia!

Well yall, I saw The Dark Knight and it was dark. Not as good as I expected, but good. Bravo Heath!

I saw Wall-E and loved, loved loved it!!!

But, the best so far this summer is Mamma Mia! This movie is pure joy. It's a feel good, bright beautiful Greek scenary, wish you were there and knew those people movie. Sends you out skipping and singing and buying the catchy and totally infectious movie soundtrack, even if you already have the songs by ABBA. It doesn't matter that Mamma Mia's been around forever, it was new this summer.

I cannot express the wonder that is Meryl Streep. She is astoundingly real and joyful and...I cannot express it. Alex help me, girl.

The movie is full of people who look like real Greek villagers. That adds to the charm. And there's Pierce Brosnan who can't sing a lick but it doesn't matter because his sincerity works for him. And there's the wonderfully wicked Christine Baranski who I've loved since her Cybil days.
So good to see a big screen musical. So much fun.

Yup - so I haven't seen this...not sure I'll be interested either. Maybe if I went w/a group of friends...maybe - lol.

Well Darius, if you like the Abba songs like Dancing Queen, you'll love it because they have never been more fun. In the story, Streep's daughter is trying to figure out who's her daddy. After reading her mom's diary, she invites 3 possible guys who may be her dad to her wedding. And there ya go.
