Australia

This is how we spent our evening with 3 great friends and my Mom. Can you say...um wait a sec. Oh Brian sweetie? Hands over your ears now my love...can you say Hugh Jackman is a hottie? Uh huh.I knew you could. Whew. This is the sort of sweeping epic that Hollywood used to make. If I had listened to the critics (And I NEVER do by the way!) we would not have gone at all. What we would have missed! I have not cried that much at the movies in awhile! Cried, laughed and came straight up off my seat! Now THAT is a movie! And this precious young man, Brandon Walters, he grabbed my heart at the film's start and never let go. And Hugh? Oh but the man looks good on a horse. And in a tux. And without the horse and the tux. Did I just say that? Um, I guess I did. Forgive me. "Australia" was a huge hit with the 4 ladies and 2 gentlemen in our group (although the men refused to answer the "Isn't Jackman hot?" question)...it just might be a hit with you as well. Okay now Brian! You can listen in now...and if any of these ladies tries to tell you that I said Hugh Jackman was hot, that are fibbing. Hmpf.

Yeah he's hot! I want to see this, did the critics give it thumbs down? I never listen to them either. They only like the ones that leave me cold. I can't wait to see this!

Oooo! I have been champing at the bit to see this one. I don't listen to critics either. I would have missed a whole lot of good movies had I done so. Every time the trailer comes on TV, my eyes are right there. Hot? This man could melt the heart of a Snow Queen! Thanks for the review. xxoo

I'm almost afraid to admit that I'm not a Hugh fan, so I'll let you have him. I'm glad to see that you enjoyed the movie.

That is the best critique I have ever read and will certainly get me to go see it even if I have to go by myself. Why is it that we always love the movies the critics put down so much? The movies they love, such as the ones up for an Academy Award are usually the ones I really don't like at all. Happy Belated Thanksgiving Susie Q. ~ Lynn

Glad to hear you don't listen to them critics, I don't either! lol Too many times they give movies a thumbs down that I thought were excellent...I guess we all have our own tastes and we shouldn't leave it to one person to dictate to all of us how we should feel about a movie. Now I really want to see this movie after hearing your review on it and seeing how handsome Hugh Jackman is...WOW!! Uh oh, I'm sure Brian's nose is going to be out of joint now!! hehe xoxo

YUP HE'S HOT! I doubt I'll get to see the movie...my hubby rarely indulges me in this kind of film. I'm glad you guys had a great time...enjoying...the scenery hehe

salmagundi said...

Australia is the one movie I hope to see in the next week or so. So glad you enjoyed it. Can't wait!!! Sally

FHL said...

Oh that does look like a good one! We spent our evening at the theatre watching, "Bolt." Which I'm 100% convinced wasn't even a tenth as entertaining... Although, J would probably argue that statement *wink* :o)

Andi said...

Looks like I need to add seeing this movie to my list of things to do this weekend. I thought your "review" was wonderful Sue!!!

FHL said...

Had to let you know, I saw the link for Cutest Blog.... and just downloaded a really fun snow ball fight background onto J's private blog. He's going to love it! Thanks :o)

I can't wait to see this movie! Maybe more than once!

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful sweet friend.

Hugs!
Kat

Okay, I'm tellin' Mr. D. and he's gonna be soooooo jealous that he'll probably wing his way to your house and sweep ya up in his arms and......well, the rest is NOT for print in a family environment, my sweet chick! But you get the idea, right?!?! ;-)
Smooches,
Connie

Sheila said...

Sounds like a good movie! If I don't catch it in the theater, I'll definitely get in through Netflix.

Sue said...

I'm glad you gave this a sterling review, I thought it might be a bore-fest...I'll have to go with the daughter when I'm in Jersey...She's the movie buff...I was actually disapointed when I saw Hugh was voted Sexiest Man Alive on the cover of People...I would have preferred Vincent D'Onofrio....yes, I know I'm crazy.

Terri said...

Love Hugh Jackman! Did you see him host the Tony awards a few years back? He is so talented.

Haven't seen this movie yet, but I agree with the "never listen to the critics" bit. We just watched Journey to the Center of the Earth and enjoyed the heck out of it and it was panned.

Jeanie said...

Hugh rocks. Now I can't wait to see it!

Sandi McBride said...

I can not wait for this movie to come to dvd...it's one I'll go to the theater to see! Thanks for the rousing recommendation!
hugs
Sandi
ps
I did hear that Brian was a bit upset over your infatuation with young Mr. Jackman!

Melanie said...

Hi, Susie Q. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments. I'm in the process of revamping my fibro site so hopefully it didn't look too disorganized when you saw it.:)
Hope you're having a lovely, restful Sunday!

Pamela said...

okay. I guess I'll go see it.
I read the critics. (They are so full of themselves.)

Carolyn said...

I can't wait to see this!!!

I gotta go see Twilight too. I just finished the book. I am hooked!!

Alice said...

I really want to see this movie. I really appreciate your review. I only listen to what my friends say about a movie, not the professional critics.
