The Monuments Men (GIVEAWAY)

Have you heard of this movie coming out February 7 called "The Monuments Men"? It looks awesome and has an AMAZING cast - Matt Damon, George Clooney, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett - and many others - oh also Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey fans, this is Lord Grantham). Star struck right there.

Usually with George Clooney films I'm a little wary - there's always a lot of cursing and explicit scenes. It's been rare that I've seen a film of his...at least without regret. This film is PG-13 and follows the true story of men who shouldn't be at the front of a war (over-the-hill, out-of-shape nerds) that went to the front lines during WWII in order to rescue the world's artistic masterpieces from the Nazis.

I know my husband would never have put his life on the line to preserve art. And that's OK but I'm so pleased these men thought it important to preserve artifacts that depicted civilization. I'm not really sure what pieces they saved (in the trailer, one says "Pablo Picaso") and I'm not really knowledgable about art and paintings, but I think they are important and beautiful and should be treasured.

I will say one thing I don't like about this movie up front is George Clooney with a mustache. C'mon man! It just doesn't work for you. That's all. Now I'll show you the trailer:

Starry Night. It was the first piece of artwork I remember falling in love with as a child.

I would save a Warhol. Maybe the Banana used on the Velvet Underground album cover.

I would also probably save "Starry Night" as well! It is just so fascinating to look at.
