Metalica and the Sky

Two films I've seen are out on DVD, and they are both worth seeing.

Metalica: Some Kind of Monster is an interesting documentary about the therapy sessions for the band Metalica. As time, fame, age, family and addictions caught up to them, they sought professional help to stay together. It is an interesting journey. I really like Metalica's hard rock, but if you're looking for their music, buy a CD, there is more talk than music in the film. Wonderful insight to the band.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is a fun ride. The tongue is firmly planted in the cheek. The script, of this sci-fi fantasy, is clever and sarcastic. All performances are as you would expect. Giovanni Ribsi has a supporting role that he carries off quite well (helps that he's so cute!) The special effects are amazing, it's a fun film!!
