One of my goals this year is to see more movies. I’ve even started looking for podcasts & blogs to follow to keep me in the know. (None I would recommend just yet.)
This weekend’s goal was to see SELMA. And here is my review if you care to read.
The Cast: Excellent chemistry. Really convincing look-a-likes. See for yourself.
The Tempo: Well paced, I hate when a story rushes to the climax, timing really is everything.
The Story: I kinda stink at History & Geography. I am always nervous that my ignorance will be revealed and cause me some sort of public embarrassment. That said, I actually knew about the televised SELMA March that exposed the violence in the South during the Civil Rights Movement. (fyi, if your chicken like me, thankfully, it doesn’t get too graphic)
This time around, the story on MLK feels more personal, there’s some humor and a general insight into his personality and political tactics. It wasn’t a sad story, where you leave angered and frustrated, it was more informative and insightful. A $12 trip back in time.
