Two to Watch - Ondine and The Joneses

A few of you lately have been asking if I've read anything good lately.  I'm still plodding away on the extremely long last installation of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn (I know, I know - really intellectually stimulating) but we watched a couple of good movies the other night that I thought I'd share.  I don't remember hearing about either of them when they were in the theaters (but then again, I could have just been living under a rock).  Either way, I think they were both worth watching.

The first was Ondine which stars Colin Farrell who is an Irish Fisherman who catches a girl in his fishing net one day.  His handicapped daughter, Annie and he befriend the girl whom they believe is a Selkie, or mermaid.  It took me a few minutes to get into it but the end was well worth it - it took me for a turn that I didn't even remotely see coming.  It sounds fantastical but in the end you'll see it is grounded in reality.  I really recommend it.  Here's a review for you to get more info.

The other one we watched (aptly named for our family!) is The Joneses which stars Demi Moore and David Duchovney (who I've become a big fan of since we started watching Californication).  The wealthy and seemingly perfect Jones family has the envy of everyone around.  But they've got a very bizarre little it yourself to find out!

Have you seen any good movies (in theaters or at home) lately to recommend?

Happy New Year to all!

  1. I haven't seen Ondine, but the description reminded me of "The Secret of Roan Inish" - you should check that one out if you haven't seen it!
