Hello, My Name is Doris

“Hello, My Name is Doris” is another one of those movies that wasn’t on my original “Watch List”. I did not know Sally Field had recently made a movie.

“Hello, My Name is Doris” is cute, light-hearted and entertaining. Sally Field makes this movie. If it had been anyone else, I don’t think they could have pulled it off.

Doris Miller (Sally Field) works as an account at a NY City firm. She meets the company’s new art director, John Freeman (Max Greenfield) and sparks fly-at least for Doris. Doris wants to impress John and get his attention.

Mean-while in Doris’s cluttered house she shared with her now deceased Mother, Doris searches the internet for a way to get John to notice her as a woman and not a co-worker. Not finding what she is looking for, Doris gets some “Dating Advice” from her 13 year old granddaughter. Soon Doris wins over John’s friends and she finds a new perspective on life. Her family and close friends are worried about her and this causes a rift between them.
The story unfolds from there…

“Hello, My Name is Doris” is a very entertaining comedy-drama. Academy Award winning actress Sally Field plays the role of Doris Miller wonderfully.

“Hello, My Name is Doris” is open in limited-release around the country. Check it out!

This is a 4 Star Movie!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: IMAX 3D

In this installment of “The Amazing Spider-Man” The Corporation known as OsCorp is the root of all problems both past and present. This is the company where Peter Parker’s Dad once worked as a renowned Scientist. The story unfolds from there…

There are lots of surprises and unexpected villains in this installment of “The Amazing Spider-Man”. This alone keeps the web slinger hustling. There is a lot of action and violence. The cinematography, visual and special effects are very good.

The problem with “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is that it’s over the top and after while you get tired of the nonsense.

This installment also mixes Spiderman’s heroic efforts with his romantic interest. The story constantly goes back and forth.

While I think this installment is pretty good. I am Luke-warm to the entire “The Amazing Spider-Man” franchise because it’s been done before.
