The Adjustment Bureau

2011

Starring: Matt Damon, Emily Blunt

I’m not sure why I so many people were giving this movie crappy reviews. I liked it. The movie did not at all seem predictable and that’s a big plus these days.

Do you believe your path in life is laid out for you?

Would you defy all odds to change your path even if it meant you had to risk everything?

The Adjustment Bureau asks just those questions and I can pretty much promise you’ll ask yourself the same after the movie.

Drop me a line after the movie and let me know…

True Grit

2010

Starring: Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon

Excellent movie! Kudos to the Coen brothers for another excellent job!

Jeff Bridges was truly the best actor to play Rooster Cogburn. He was so good it was almost annoying, especially his drunkenness.

It took me a few minutes, and looking at the movie jacket, to confirm that it was actually Matt Damon playing LaBoeuf. I didn’t recognize his voice or face, I just barely recognized his eyes. They really did a good job taking the ‘Matt Damon’ look off and putting the ‘Western’ look on.

Hailee Steinfeld has come barreling out of pretty much nowhere and has taken the silver screen by storm. In True Grit she plays Mattie Ross, a young girl determined to find her fathers killer. She’s out to kick a little ass and she ain’t taking ‘No’ for an answer.

Hereafter

2010

Starring: Matt Damon, C├ęcile De France, and Bryce Dallas Howard

I thought this was going to be a great movie. I had high hopes from the previews. I could sum this movie up in one word… UGH!

Slooooow, very very slow. One Hundred and Twenty Nine minutes I will never see again. I’m all for paced movies, but this one almost had me shutting if off.

I get all the afterlife mumbo-jumbo stuff (which there wasn’t much of) and that each of the lives of the three main characters will come together at some point in the movie. But speed it up just a tad.

And good heavens, if you’re a depressive or the like I wouldn’t recommend this movie. You’ll hit one hell of a downward spiral.

Oh, there were a couple scenes in the movie that took my breath away. I’m issuing a possible tissue warning.
