Carol’s Movies 12/31/14

Carol Says:

The Theory of Everything

Eddie Redmayne, who plays Hawking, does a really great job. Now, about the movie.

I had really wanted to see this movie. If you don’t know anything about Stephen Hawking this is a very good movie to learn all about him and a little of his theories. As much as I tried to understand what was said, it was still over my head.

Having read up about him, of course I still learned new things. However, I just cannot say to run out and see this movie if you know about him. If you don’t, then you definitely should go see this movie. And I think as the days go by, I will say to myself that it is really better than I think at this moment, after just seeing it.

Wish there was more I could say about it. There are lots of good things to say about it, but I left the theatre just unsure what to say. Not sure what I thought I would get out of the movie (before seeing it), and after seeing it I thought, “well, I knew that and what did I expect from this movie”? So, it’s like I already said.

  1. Carol, I read and saw the movie, and gave it (5) stars, but I do understand why it was a little over your head. I think we all experience different speed bumps in life, and this one to me is what love and loyalty means when one as experienced the test of real love! Thanks Carol for sharing, I appreciate you taking the time!
    Sincerely,
    Mary K.
    Happy New Years to you and Dave

    • You are right! She was so dedicated to him and the movie does show loyalty and love. But the black holes and all his theories, I listened to real hard and still don’t get it. I need a session with Tom Schumann for better learning. I like reading your comment because you brought some clarity to the movie.
