Monday Movie Meme: Narrators

Like the Bumbles, I love the voice of Morgan Freeman. His voice is just so wonderful and can capture an audience. I am not a very big fan of history shows but when it is narrated by Morgan Freeman I am compel to watch it as I just love him. I guess I have to share my love of Morgan Freeman with the Bumbles.

Anyway, I know I have seen many movies which was narrated but I can't seem to think of it. Coincidentally, we watched a narrated movie last night. The title of the movie is "The Lovely Bones". When we started watching it, I can't believe that Marky Mark was the main actor of the movie... what an added bonus because I am a fan of him.

The Lovely Bones centers on a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family - and her killer - from heaven. She must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal.

Anyway, I think Anthony Hopkins will also make a good narrator.

I really liked The Lovely Bones when I read it. Haven't seen the movie yet - afraid it won't hold up as well on screen. And I just couldn't picture the sweetness that is Marky Mark playing the role of that Dad. But it is a perfect choice for this topic of Narrated movies - that's what made everything in the book so haunting. I imagine it is quite effective in the movie too.
