    Run All Night

    ★★½

    Not Taken. Feels similar at times to many action movies before but there are still some good sequences to entertain.

    Meh: Ed Harris is an over-acting machine here.

    Good: I like all the political undertones and themes and how propaganda is used in a war.
    Bad: Super thin Peeta is really ewww.
    Meh: Gotta feel bad for Katniss being used by every side.

    I watched this movie knowing nothing about it one night and I was hooked. Tarantino has a gift for dialogue like none other. I love the pop culture references, the snappiness of the exchanges and yes the profanity. The soundtrack for the movie was perfect, the juxtaposition…
