:fresh: Movies about the story of someone else's life is not my favorite genre to watch but I was certainly impressed with this story. Andy yes I am a fan of Andy Garcia's work but I am not just saying nice things about this movie for the sake of saying nice things. This movie was filled with music and drama about the struggle a man and his family went through to have a better life that included the freedom to make their own choices. Some great acting was included with some very lively music along with some great directing. For Love or Country will spice up your night.
[COLOR=White] Man, HBO Films and Tv series rock. I caught "For Love or Country:The Arturo Sandaval Story" tonight (on DVD but it's an HBO release) and what an awesome movie that was. It actually made me feel almost proud to be American, without the cheese of waving flags, Coca-Cola, or saluting GI's. That's a pretty amazing feat in itself, but what's even more amazing is the amount of heart that went into the movie. The performances were so natural and believable, and I thought the script was great too. Because usually a movie based on a true story about a somewhat tragic event is SO full of ham and funk that it almost makes you feel guilty watching it, but that wasn't the case here. So this is even more proof for my stance that small movies take a meticulously coordinated shit all over big budget blockbuster fiascos. Speaking of big fiascos, why on earth would anyone remake The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? It's not like it's an obscure movie that people have never heard of, and I still don' se that as a good reason for a remake either. What are they hoping to accomplish? Well, dollars of course, but damn that's sad. Well, on the plus side I saw Jessica Biel in an interview about it and cheebus she looked good. Best celebrity bod in year and years I tell you, nice and athletic. :o Yes, I know a statement like that is no good without pics, I can't find any non-risque images to illustrate my point, so: [/color] [img]http://invis.free.anonymizer.com/http://us.ent4.yimg.com/movies.yahoo.com/images/hv/photo/movie_pix/warner_brothers/summer_catch/jessica_biel/catchpre4.jpg[/img]
