I give out 5 star ratings like a madman. And I don’t feel the least bit bad about it. Gritty 70’s crime flicks are my jam.

    I went into this not knowing what to expect. It’s poster is very misleading. It appears on the poster that it could be. A Kingsmen type action movie. That’s not what it is at all. It’s a tight, twisty, violent thriller. And I dug it! Mark Rylance is so damn charming. This would make for a gripping stage production. Everyone involved plays their characters so great! I can’t wait to revisit it.

    Although it’s got the cliche sports drama formula, Hustle is a very well made film. It’s got a lot of heart and it is uplifting for sure. And it’s nice to see an R-Rated sports drama. Those don’t come around too often because they aren't too “family-friendly”. Adam Sandler shines as he always does in dramatic roles. I didn’t expect to like this as much as I actually did. And it was cool to see all the cameos from famous players and personalities in the NBA world, even though I don’t watch the NBA in reality.

    Checked this out at my local IMAX theater. It really might be Christopher Nolan's masterpiece, at least from a technical standpoint. And it's also the one film that feels the least Nolan-like. The Hans Zimmer score is intense as hell. And the dogfight scenes with the spitfire planes are absolutely exhilarating and breathtaking. It's a gorgeous looking war film that ranks as one of the best contemporary WW2 films along with Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line.
