Girl's Guide to Movies
Ok, so I had some requests to review Taking Woodstock and I thought I better do that before the weekend comes and you're trying to decide what movie to see and you're cursing Ali in LaLa Land for not reviewing any movies this week. (Ok, that's a stretch, you probably won't do that.)
Moving on.. I don't know if everyone will like this movie. I thought it was a little slow but overall it was good. The relationship between the family at the center of the movie is funny and endearing. I definitely enjoyed that. I also enjoyed the main character and his quest to take care of his family but still have a good life.
The Good: Awesome description of the actual Woodstock, I hope that if I was a young person living then I would have been there. It looked like a great (albeit crazy) time!
The Bad: It was slow, at some points it was just going along too long and I was thinking "wrap it up!"
The Ugly: If you have sensitive eye's you may not enjoy the nudity or the drug scenes.
If I were you, I'd probably wait until it comes out on DVD.
