blackbird's two minute movie reviews

We saw Black Swan last weekend and I think I can only explain it as preposterous!
First of all, I am not a fan of movies of this type. And what type would that even be?! Horror? Suspense?
I don't know, it was just a little silly.
Must I tip my hat to Ms. Portman for her award-winning acting? I felt like she was too old for the part from the moment she opened her mouth. I, never for a moment, believed her dancing. Lord knows, I stand with my arms outstretched like that all the time. In the kitchen. Props for her neck tendons, though. Meanwhile, poor botoxed Barbara Hershey hovers like Piper Laurie in Carrie. Ack.
What did I like? The costumes. Shocking, I know.

The shredded leggings.

The wispy shrugs...(oh, for a wispy shrug!)

The stunning evening dress.

Even the scarves were beautifully done - and I know my scarves.

But, Natalie Portman as a delusional twenty-something?

I may be the wrong audience.

a horror movie in my view.

I am the wrong audience too.

One of my friends here (she's very much into movies) hinted what it was about.
I shall never see that movie.
