I've said this before about other films, but it applies here too; it's a classic for a reason. Expert direction, strong style, and De Niro giving arguably the greatest performance ever.

It drags a bit here and there, but otherwise it's a fine picture. Authentically made and bleak as hell, it gives of a nourish vibe. Lawrence rightfully broke out after this came out, and Hawkes supports her nicely.

Stray Note: It took me a while to watch this one. I rented it on a school day, and I rarely slept before school. Essentially, I watched it on and off throughout the day; falling asleep then waking up, rewinding to start back where I left off.

At times it's pretty painful to watch, but overall this is a strong film with a wonderful cast; especially Hathaway, giving an Oscar nominated turn.

A compelling movie with a timely (when it was released) premise, and a powerful performance from Richard Jenkins.

An Education (2009)

DVD- 1hr. 40min.
First Viewing
There's a lot to like here. The period details are nice, the direction subdued, the writing patient, and the cast great; especially Mulligan in a radiant, breakout performance. It just has a been there, done that premise. I feel like I've seen it several times before. It's essentially an incredibly well made Lifetime movie.

A Brutal, beautiful, thought-provoking film. Eastwood's last truly great effort.

Decent, but particularly fresh or invigorating. Bullock's fine, and newcomer Quinton Aaron does a solid job. It's script is where the problem lies, with every inspirational sports movie clichรฉ being checked off at a rapid rate. It does work though, but only barely.

Mini Rant: HOW THE HELL DID THIS GET A BEST PICTURE NOMINATION!?!?!? Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, but how could this make it in, and movies like The Hangover, Star Trek, and (500) Day of Summer not.

I'm gonna be honest here; I don't remember a damn thing about this one. I vaguely remember it being decent, but I can't really attest to one way or the other. Should probably watch it again soon.

A tender, funny, and weirdly effecting movie. This is a film that in the wrong hands could've been a cheap sex comedy, but Craig Gillespie's direction and Nancy Oliver's script make this something more genuine and intimate. The main reason this movie works though, is Ryan Gosling's performance, which sells the hell of this strange romance.
