I’ve been remiss in commenting on the movies I’ve seen lately, so here goes:
PRIME. Insanely dull. Not funny. Closest I’ve coming to falling asleep in a movie theatre in decades. Oddly, my wife felt the same way.
THE SQUID AND THE WHALE. Jeff Daniels is terrific. Some great scenes. Film doesn’t so much end as it simply stops. Still, worth seeing.
GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK. Based on the reviews, I was expecting a lot. My expectations weren’t met. David Strathairn’s performance as Murrow is great, but the film still skates on the surface. It doesn’t reveal anything you didn’t already know and offers no fresh insights.
IN HER SHOES. I’m embarrassed to admit how much I enjoyed this movie. My wife took me to it against my will and I found it funny, moving, and a well-acted. Sure, it’s a formula movie…but the formula works.
And there was some French movie we saw in the last month or so that was so forgettable that neither my wife nor I can remember what it was about, who was in it, or even what the title was.
