I had to take a day to try and put my thoughts on this film into a coherent review so here it goes. I didn't find "Life Itself" to be anywhere near as bad as it's being made out to be, however it's one that I can see why people are hating. The first story is the one that has the most potential and is also the worst. It has a story that could make for a powerful and moving…
A story we've seen time and time again but one that has such charm and heart throughout. "Juliet, Naked" is just such a nice and entertaining time at the movies that surprisingly has a ton of laughs and great little performances from it's three leads particularly Ethan Hawke who just continues to prove how great an actor he is.
Side note though who's idea was it to cast two people from "Bridesmaids" and have Chris O'Dowd's love interest in both be named Annie?
Far from perfect but easily the most fun I've had at the movies all year. To get the problems out of the way first, some of the CGI effects are iffy, not every joke sticks the landing, and the first 20 or so minutes a little messy, but once this film gets going I had a total blast. Reynolds is terrific once again but Beetz really impressed me as Domino and Brolin kills it as Cable. The action sequences are…
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. The tone also balances drama, comedy and a little romance pretty nicely as well. It's nothing to special, but it's still a irresistibly charming crowd pleaser.
