Seeing as I love all of the blogs I follow, I thought I would start giving out some links every week! But first, here are the films I have seen recently and my opinion on them.
Sleepless in Seattle - This is one underrated film in my opinion. The ending was just a bit less then satisfying, but for the most part I have nothing but praises for it! The directing was solid throughout, and Tom Hanks gave an absolutely touching performance. Oddly enough, especially for my age, I loved this film. 3.5/4
Away We Go - Anyone who reads this blog knows I love Sam Mendes, but I am not going to pretend like I loved Away We Go. The first half was decent, but the second half was better. Unfortunately, they felt like two completely different films! John Krasinski was excellent, and Mendes was good basically, but I only enjoyed this film, nothing more. 2.5/4
Pale Rider - Clint Eastwood is one incredible director, but I cannot say that Pale Rider lived up to his finest work as both an actor and director (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Million Dollar Baby, Letters from Iwo Jima). But what is the best thing about Eastwood? Even when he is off his game he still comes through. 3/4
There Will Be Blood - Masterpiece. 4/4
V for Vendetta - Not a film I really want to watch more than once, but V for Vendetta was a very thought provoking work that truly has excellent direction and acting. Not to mention a great musical score. 3.5/4
