    Changeling

    ★★★½

    Bloated run time, but never boring, sad film and well acted. I could not help but think of Emelie Autumn's album Fight like a Girl while watching the mental institution parts and her describing various scenarios against the will of helpless *patients*. Which made me think of all of the pain men have caused women, in such roles as mental health doctors. Angelina is pretty solid here.

    The Place Beyond the Pines

    ★½

    This is about to be one of those times where I veer radically from Letterboxd. I was loving the initial set up, camera angles, the mood and introduction to the characters and it kept going down hill from there. I felt like this film tried to rely to much on its cast big names rather than put together anything competent. It felt like a colossal waste of time and a film that lacked any interesting story and cohesion. At times it was a bank robbery film, then a crooked cop film and then a teen drama film and it didn't succeed at any of them.

    While watching this I kept thinking
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    Had not seen in awhile and was doing a comparison of which is better part 1 or 2.

    The first thing that came as a surprise for me this time was, I spotted an actor and actress that also appeared In Near Dark. I Guess Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron were sharing more than a bed!

    Linda Freaking Hamilton Rocks in here. <---Captain obvious statement.…

  • Argo

    Argo

    ★★★★½

    Really intense film. This is a lesson in how to ramp up the tension that everyone should study.

    Now I have to see more of Ben Afflecks films.

    Besides taking abit to set everything up I can't really find any flaws in this movie. The airport scene was my favorite, especially when the guy is explaining to the soldier what the Argo movie will be about.

    I had been worried about a terrible depiction of the Iranian people in here…
