It's a Winner.......Go See it!
Went to see "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" January 12 - Sunday and it was terrific. It starts off similar to the James Thurber short story by the same name, but then branches out into something of its own design. A lot of the scenes (not the computer-generated ones, but the natural landscapes) are breath-taking. Several literary references sprinkled throughout the story and a fair amount of whimsy. I would highly recommend it.
If you're looking for "burst-out-loud" laughing, this movie is probably not for you. It will make you smile, it will make you chuckle, and even take you a stage above a chuckle, every now and again.
I also enjoyed how they integrated the current climate of corporate down-sizing and portrayed the ignorance of the younger ones who act as the corporate raiders, yet they clearly don't understand even fundamental vocabulary words like "quintessence.' It's all fast-food-like actions with no thought or genuine management/personnel skills behind them.
