Movie Review: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

  1. Hi T, long time!…. I got “stuck” in Reykjavik once during a flight to Europe; the extended layover gave me an opportunity to explore for 1/2 a day. The city wasn’t all that interesting, but once you leave the city proper, the landscape is simply gorgeous, surreal, and other-worldly. By the end of the day, I didn’t want to leave. You been watching the Vikings?

    1. Hi Scott! Sometimes unexpected travel delays are better than the trip, right? I haven’t watched the Vikings, actually. I don’t have the attention span to watch a series (which sounds weird coming from someone who has the attention span to watch 6 hours of bike racing, I know). Hope you are well!

  2. I taught Thurber’s short story to ninth graders for years and would show clips from the 1940s version. It was pretty campy, but also true to the story. I know this version veers away quite a bit, so it will be interesting to see how that sits with me when I finally see it.

    1. Hi Jeri, I never read the story, but I think I need to. It translated really well to the Stiller film version. I’d love to know what you think if you see it too. Thanks for stopping by!
