Once - If You Want Me

The other day I saw the movie Once. Director John Carney calls his movie a "video album". I call it a pretty damn good feel good movie. The movie isn't extravagant or expensive and the characters aren't pretty or glamourous. The movie is quite the opposite. It's just about normal people sharing their love for music. Rotten Tomatoes gives this movie an overall 98% with the top critics giving it 100%. It doesn't mean that it's the greatest movie/musical ever made. It just means that if you had a choice between renting Once versus watching 27 Dresses or whatever other crap is out there, you should probably give Once a chance.

My favorite song from the movie is probably this one, called If You Want Me, sung by Marteka Irglova. Not too shabby ya?
