9 (Brodie)

Disappointing. Was expecting originality and instead was given cliches and cheesiness. Darn. It was visually interesting and the characters were fun. However, the movie left me flat. Wasn't horrible--just not great.

Taking Woodstock (Brodie)

I really liked it.

A story about a family's personal and financial hardships and how the Woodstock music festival changed them. It really wasn't a movie about Woodstock, the concert just acted as a plot device to advance the characters' stories, which is why I liked this movie even more. It was a unique perspective about a such a defining event.

Characters were dynamic and interesting. Atmosphere was inspiring.
