I recently had the opportunity to Review “Amelia” on DVD. It was a great reenactment of the “Queen of the Air’s” story. She was amazing and I am still inspired by women who fly planes! It is a DVD that I am happy to add to my collection. Richard Gere and Hilary Swank did amazing jobs in their roles in the movie!

Experience the romance, struggle and triumph of legendary aviatrix Amelia Earhart as she chases love and lives her dreams in Amelia, landing on Blu-ray Disc with Digital Copy and DVD February 2 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Hailed as “The Queen of the Air,” Amelia boldly flew into the annals of history with her solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean.  Bound by ambition and love, her enduring marriage to George Putnam could not be broken by her determination to fly, or a secret passionate affair. Equal parts gripping drama, stirring romance and epic adventure, Amelia will take your breath away and send your spirit soaring!

MY THOUGHTS:

I really enjoyed watching “Amelia” on DVD.  It was a great movie and I feel like I learned more about Amelia than I knew before.  I think that Hilary Swank and Richard Gere did amazing jobs in their roles in the movie.  I’m glad I had a chance to review it and own it.

    i love richard gere, i like hillary swank, so i know the movie will be fantastic. hillary seems to pick movies that seem harder/deep? maybe, cant think of the right word but she doesnt just pick every movie offered to her, she really waits for the good ones, and richard i just feel in love with when he rescued julia roberts from being a um escort in pretty woman.

Hillary Swank has become a new yet consistent actor that I LOVE, ever since I watched her in P.S. I Love You. I am not generally a crier for movies, but she was completely believable in her role and I LOVED it! It was a tear jerker for SURE!

    Oh please pick me to win this! it would be such a blessing!

    Thanks for the chance!
