Black Swan was a Black Hole

After a lazy morning around the house we finally decided to shlep ourselves to Savannah and see a movie.  I had really been wanting to see Black Swan.  It had been raved about as a future award winner, so it was easy to convince Matt to go with me, he is really into movies like that.  I on the other hand are more into low brow comedies and children's movies.  You know the kind that don't really require much thought.
So...Black Swan it was.

I won't go into a lot of detail in case some of you still want to see it.  An hour into the movie we were still saying, "something good is about to happen" or "oh, surely it is about to get good".  Sadly, we were still saying that at the end of the movie.  It was weird.  I don't understand what was supposed to be good about it.

  Yes, Natalie Portman did a good job acting, but I still didn't really like it.  That's my prerogative right? Also, I will admit that the ballet scenes were good and at times beautiful, but I am not really that into the ballet.  I don't know, it just wasn't exactly the thriller/drama I had anticipated in my  mind.  Some of you no doubt will probably go see this and say to yourself, "What was Chelle talking about, this is amazing", a few of my friends already have seen it and loved it.  So go see it and decide for yourself.
I do know one thing, I will have a hard time cutting my finger nails from now on.  
I wish we had just gone and seen Country Strong.  I knew better than to listen to the critics (whoever they are).

Really?! I loved it and I'm not typically into movies like that either. But to each their own, right? :)

Yep, I was surprised that I didn't like it, especially after you and Shannon had said the opposite. Oh well, I guess I can't like every movie I see.
