We just watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty tonight after work. It was the perfect film to end a Monday: lots of wide, sweeping shots, a perfectly planned soundtrack, and the story of a man leaving behind his desk and heading into the unknown adventure of life.

I loved it.

This was just one of the many movies we’ll watch this season in preparation for the Oscar’s in March (nothing has been officially nominated, so we’re going off of hearsay and speculation), but I loved it for its simplicity and hope.

I would recommend going to see this while it’s still in theaters. True, those shots will be amazing on the home screen too, but there is something about the expanse of the theater, and their sound system, that brings out the beauty of this film and lets you fully appreciate the magnificence of the places where it was made.

Here is one of the songs from the film that I rather liked, by Junip.
