  • Black Mass

    Black Mass 2015

    ★★★ Watched 20 Sep, 2015

    Johnny Depp isn't bad, I guess, but I couldn't help thinking how I'd rather watch Jack Nicholson ham it up in The Departed instead. The Bostononian aspects weren't bad, I guess, but the scene wasn't set with loving care like The Town was. The plot wasn't bad, I guess, but, well, you get the idea.

    This movie feels like Thanksgiving leftovers about a week after the fact. At that point you're throwing the potatoes, stuffing and turkey into a stew…

    Sometimes you wake up and find that your wife has made a terrible movie-watching decision and yet you have to watch the entire 90 minutes just to see how bad the train wreck really is.

    Pure magic. Outstanding performances all around, and maybe only the second justified and fully realized utilization of 3D, with Cameron's Avatar being the other. I felt the need to stand up and cheer for the first time since The Lord of the Rings. This is why we go to the movies.

    What the fuck was that?
