We finally watched "Walk the Line" tonight. It's been on our dvr since October '06, oops.
I really enjoyed the movie. Semi-autobiographical films like that are always interesting. I came around pretty late as a Cash fan. My parents didnt really listen to country music (when I was younger at least), so I never really heard his music for the most part until I was in college. The acting & singing were good in my opinion (and Oscar voters apparently). I'm a bit biased, but I will disclose that I think "Coal Miners Daughter" was better than WTL.
"Coal Miners Daughter" just seemed to be a bit more detailed than WTL even though they were both equal in length. Funny side story on what drew me to Loretta (since I didnt grow up on her music either)... was the CMD movie. When I got a step-mother, she happened to have the video... I watched it at some point soon after...and then proceeded to wear it out.
Surprisingly, Hal got me the DVD for Christmas a few years ago. One of the best gifts EVER! :)
After seeing Loretta back in February, I casually mentioned the trip to my aunt. She said... I always think of you when I hear about Loretta... I had totally forgotten how much I had blabbered on and on about LL until she mentioned that.
Anyway, if you havent seen "Walk the Line," you should. I'm still bummed that their house burned earlier this year :( I saw it once while we were out on the lake and it was definitely unique.
