You watch a simple, elegant movie like “Bottle Shock” (2008) and you think to yourself, “movie-making isn’t as hard a process as some people say it is.” Get some good actors, a good script, some pretty scenery and that’s that. I mean, heck, I grilled and ate a T-bone steak, drank a growler of beer, talked to my sister on the phone, and posted a blog (not this blog, a different blog that actually pays money) all while watching this movie and I never once got confused, lost interest or stopped liking it. And it’s just a movie about wine.
