Best of the Quest #3 - Movie Reviews

As I refect on years of questing here at Her Ladyship's Quest I'm looking back through some of my movie reviews. I love good movies. A good movie is the pinnacle of art for our civilization because it draws on so many artistic skills: filming, acting, music, writing, costuming, technology, etc.

Read through some of my reviews and maybe you'll find something good to watch.

The Other Boleyn Girl
A splendid historical story with great acting.

Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie
Excuse the pun but it's a mind-blower. I am a self proclaimed documentary junkie. I watch a lot of them and this one is truly amazing. Plus William Shatner is the narrator.

Easy Rider
This 60s classic is just plain heavy. Peter Fonda does not say much, but when he has a line it's profound.

The Sword of Doom
I've never been secretive about my admiration of Asian movies. The Sword of Doom is an unapologetic bad guy story, and I thought it was riveting.

Red Cliff: Original International Version
This two part Chinese epic will take you five hours to watch. Still with me? It's awesome. Go read my reviews to see what I'm talking about. I've even been entertaining the thought of watching this epic again.
