I struggle explaining how I rate movies.
Top 4 are my favorites I saw in the year 2020.
I picked this because I like Zoey Deutch a lot. She was awesome in Buffaloed earlier in 2020. Flower was a hella weird movie overall but she was awesome in it. I adored the movie Everybody Wants Some just in general.
And yet I still had relatively low expectations going into this. Which is how it played out.
This movie’s biggest problem is its script. I myself am considered a millennial and definitely enjoy some millennial humor. But this had WAY too many…
I didn’t have any desire to see this but these are the kinds of movies my mom likes & I got talked into seeing it since it was Christmas-time. But this was surprisingly better than the generic action movie I was expecting. Still nothing super special. But just enough of a tick above the cookie-cutter action movies that there’s already a ton of to make this an entertaining watch.
Kevin Costner in particular was awesome in this. Thanks for attending my mini-TED talk.
I had always wanted to see this. I started it on Netflix over the summer but wasn’t able to finish it before it left that site.
Talk about a star studded cast. Matt Damon. Jude Law. Gwenyth Paltrow. Cate Blanchett. Phillip Seymour Hoffman (who was perfectly cast in this). Then some Albert Finney to top it all off too. The only person that was missing is the Fausto character low key looked like Dustin Hoffman. That would’ve been awesome.
I had never heard of this movie before but I saw the cast and got so fricken excited for this. Rachel McAdams, Ben Affleck, Russell Crowe. I mean come on.
Plus small appearances from Jason Bateman, Helen Mirren, Jeff Daniels, David Harbour, and an all too brief cameo from Viola Davis.
And clearly from my rating, this did not disappoint. Normally I’m lukewarm about political thrillers like this going in since it’s another genre that’s so vast/been done so many…
