Movies: The Song of Names, 63 Up, The Grudge

Movie 1: The Song of Names

This was an interesting film given its holocaust subject matter.  It’s based on a novel by Norman Lebrecht.  It is a story spanning over 35 years in search of a young gifted Polish violin prodigy named Dovidl.

Sounds intriguing and promising,…well not quite.  While some bits show promise, most of the film is convoluted, confusing and frustrating.

Movie 2: 63 Up

Interestingly enough this documentary film chronicles 14 subjects of the United Kingdom every seven years over their lifetime.  It’s a fantastic peek at then opinions that have evolved into the currant fabric.  

It relies heavily on historical footage.  The concept has morphed into a continuing saga bridging the youth and aging population waiting for the next chapter of life.

Movie 3: The Grudge

Let’s get right to it…this film is based on a Japanese film Ju-On.  It’s an old, tired series with a creepy haunting theme.  It’s the 20th film to receive an F on CimemaScore.  Save your time and money and skip this one!!
