Too Serious for a Silly Plot

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I this this movie needed to be a little campier. This is an interesting concept, the movie based on the semi-biographical novel by Chuck Barris, interweaves some of the truth about this odd man, with a spy thriller. It just didn't work for me. The best parts were the slightly campy scenes like with Julia Roberts or the annoying couple he chaperoned in ... read more

I kind of have mixed feeling about whether or not I actually enjoyed watching this film. I can't quite work out if I liked it or not..

I do know that it was very slow starting. In fact I almost didn't end up watching the whole thing. But I think it was when George Clooney came on and the whole CIA thing started that it got a bit more interesting. I mean, a bit more interesting.

It isn’t enough that George Clooney is a tremendous movie star, but with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind he proves that he’s got great skill at this whole writer-director thing. Frequently he takes the film into highly stylized territory, at times the film looks incredibly bleached or overly saturated in its colors, but it always feels like a smart choice from a confident hand. Even as the plo... read more

"Confessions of a Hall and Oates Fan (2013) Plot: Two people with a poor taste in music have a battle of the bands, but they procrastinate when they both hate the rules they made for them. Pros: - Probably the funniest movie I've ever made. - Makes fun of two of the worst musical groups very well. Cons: - It has this one plot hole that irks me. 8/10 Fun Fact: First movie I kept track of how many days I filmed this movie for. I also drew a poster for it. "

“It isn’t enough that George Clooney is a tremendous movie star, but with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind he proves that he’s got great skill at this whole writer-director thing. Frequently he takes the film into highly stylized territory, at times the film looks incredibly bleached or overly saturated in its colors, but it always feels like a smart choice from a confident hand. Even as the plot goes into increasingly hard-to-believe areas (allegedly based on truth if you believe Chuck Barris), Clooney always keeps things entertaining and appealing to look at.

This is a great hand trick, because the plot is the one thing that’s hardest to swallow in the film. Was Chuck Barris really a CIA operative? Who knows, but Confessions takes his claim at face value. This leads to a f” read more

July-August 2013 Movie Journal (40 movies items)

" I have no idea how I missed out for so long on yet another fantastically deranged performance from the great Sam Rockwell- this is a great companion to the actor's work in Seven Psychopaths. In addition, the movie's a great deal of fun and constantly takes interesting twists and turns."

"Okay, I know that I am probably the only woman in the world that doesn't love Drew Barrymore. But, nevertheless, I cannot stand her. But she didn't spoil this movie for me! I still loved it! George Cloony was...well, George Clooney. I mean that man is amazing. Everything about this film was wonderful. Win for me :) "
