The second of yesterday’s two movies, this one at the AMC Classic Longview 10, was the new biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger.
The movie isn’t a life story about Judy Garland, but instead focuses on her final touring performance in London, weeks before her death in 1969, with flashbacks to her time making The Wizard of Oz and “dating” Micky Rooney in 1939.
While it is an interesting look at a slice of a celebrity’s life, the movie itself isn’t that great. There’s only a handful of songs used, seems none of ’em all the way through, they all seem to be cut short. Or maybe that was just me.
