I watched two movies last week. As I am getting more of the Academy Award winners watched, I am realizing that I don't know what it takes to make a good movie. I watched Out of Africa and Forrest Gump. First off, Forrest Gump is a movie that I could probably quote start to finish with only a few mistakes. I enjoy that movie and could find myself watching it over and over. Out of Africa wasn't as much of an attention grabber to me. I've talked with a few people that have seen it and liked it, but I don't know what I was missing. I'm glad I watched it, but I don't know what made it the best movie of 1985.
I've got 7 of the 29 movies I have to watch done. Next on the list is Amadeus from 1984. We'll see what that one has in store for me.
