Only thing George has over her is the aging well, gaining that air of prestige that comes with age, suave gentlemen look. Always seemed to me ppl tried to compare his style to the likes of Frank, Dean, and Sammy the whole rat pack but to me he is like the most vapid version of those guys and wouldn't ever measure up. Just for one he was nowhere near as talented.
No one should have to watch Taken 3. T3 was the worst movie I've seen in a long, long time. Maggie Grace cried 5 times in this one... probably a dozen more off screen for being stuck in such a horrible franchise. The action was over-the-top (in a bad way), the acting was horrible, the plot was extra-generic with a dash of extra-predictable (srsly figured out the "twist" in the 2nd scene), the explosions were pointless and cheesy, and I'm just mad I got dragged to the movie. Shame on Luc Besson for mailing it in this time even more than the last. Forrest Whitaker just joined for the paycheck, no real semblance of trying in this role.
No one watch it.
I gotta assume even despite you saying over the top action in a bad way, horrible acting, predictable, and extra generic that they still managed to top the Maggie Grace launching grenades with Liam on his echolocation steez via explosions
Wifey & I caught Olive Kitteridge on HBO this afternoon. This 2 part mini series or movie based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book was solid. Great performance from Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins, & even the bit role from Bill Murray... John Gallagher from Newsroom & Short Term was in it too...
It was on all day today and I was gonna give it a shot but when I read the synopsis it felt like it was some ongoing series that I'd be jumping in the middle of. Wasn't making much sense to me so I passed, then the Talented Mr. Ripley came on
I also watched The Mexican today for the first time. Meh overall.
And now it has me wondering so I ask yall. Is Julia Roberts really a good actress?
It's one of those slice of life flicks looking into the life of a school teacher whose married with a son. She's well meaning but kinda anti social person who suffers from severe depression (possibly even mental illness). Although she means well, she has a negative effect on her husband (Richard Jenkins) & son (John Gallagher ) which greatly effects their lives.
It really does great job exploring how complex a marriage (especially a long one) can be. I really liked the dichotomy of how needlessly cruel Olive (Frances McDormand) could be & how kind her husband was. It was a really stark contrast which was explored very well.
On principle now a days I try to avoid movies with Kristen Stewart in them.
