The Hours (quick movie review)

The Hours falls under the "I really need to watch that movie again" sort of category. I spent too much time of the movie being distracted by my brain saying things like, "Well, that was weird" and "What in the hell does that have to do with anything?" and then, by the end, I remember thinking, "Oh……… gotcha."

Well, sort of. The movie tells three stories in three time periods, but I would have much rather watched two different movies: one about Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore and Ed Harris – all that stuff – and then a second movie that was just about Nicole Kidman’s story. Sure, I see the connection, but I felt stuff wasn’t explored as thoroughly as it could have been.

Still, despite the flaws I perceived, I have to recommend The Hours – this is a movie that’ s worth seeing, but I’m not ready to score it yet. If you have strong opinions on this flick, I’d love to hear from you!
