Don't Forget Reign Over Me This Weekend

Reign Over Me

Unfortunately I have not yet had the chance to see Reign Over Me, but I've been anxiously awaiting it. And the good news - it's getting great reviews. I'm always worried that a movie I'm looking forward to will end up getting terrible reviews and get buried much too quickly before anyone has the chance to see it, like The Fountain. However, Reign Over Me is getting a solid 71% on Rotten Tomatoes, the highest of any film opening this weekend. Peter at SlashFilm had the chance to review it himself and gave it a 7.5/10, calling it "endearing and emotional".

So this Spring Break weekend when you go make your choice of movie to see out of the vast selection, don't forget Reign Over Me and consider catching Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle in a powerful drama that will be well worth your time. And look for our review this weekend as wel.

Reign Over Me was a good emotional drama. Good acting by everyone involved and a terrific soundtrack (although I wish there were more songs). The movie really showed the power of friendship and grief. Definetly worth your time to check it out.

I actually just saw it yesterday here in LA. I don't think it completely surpassed my expectations, as they were very high, but I need to get a second viewing when I'm not so dead tired, because I think there was a lot of emotion and drama that I missed and that made the film much better than I perceived. Either way it was still fantastic. I love Cheadle (look at Talk to Me too), and now I really think Sandler pulled off a wonderful and convincing non-comedic role. I even nearly cried at that one speech he gave to their parents at the very end after the trial.
