A total fucking knockout. I've never seen a film incorporate as many different genres (war, action, drama, crime) together as seamlessly and effectively as this does. This is without a doubt the most brutal, hard hitting, and devastating film of John Woo's career that does not hold back on the violence or graphic natures of its story with several scenes that will stick with you long after it ends.

Coincidentally saw one of the biggest disappointments of the year and one of the biggest surprises of the year within a few hours of each other.

It's predictable, cliched, and it does run to long containing some unnecessary subplots but "The Intern" is still a really sweet and enjoyable film to watch. Robert De Niro is terrific and Anne Hathaway is really good as well and the two of them do share some really good chemistry.

I expected this to be good but I didn't expect it to be great. Sure not every joke works and the film starts off a little rocky, "Instant Family" is still one of the most funny, honest, touching, powerful, and above all else heartwarming films of the year. Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne are perfectly cast while the kids are great as well and you really buy their chemistry. Don't have too much to say about this one but it really is one of the most enjoyable movies of the year and I just appreciated how honest this movie was. Go see this.
