Once was too much
Last weekend I saw the movie Once. I’ve been reading a lot of good reviews about it. But, I was disappointed with it. And I really wanted to like it a lot. I thought it was going to be one of those little-engines-that-could kinda movies. But not for me.
I thought the acting was really good. I believed that these were real people. The sound was awful. I had a hard time understanding dialog ... and lyrics in the songs. Me mum was Irish ... so I'm used to listening to Irish folks talk. So that wasn't the problem. The sound was just bad.
Plus, there were too many songs ... played all the way through with footage “in the background” so to speak. I got bored of that. So, I really disagree with those reviews that just rave about it.
