Movie fiend

I wanted to catch up on some movie watching so I spent a few days at the theater. I saw The Green Hornet, The Fighter and True Grit.

The Green Hornet was cheesy movie that offers nothing more than some brainless entertainment. Seth Rogen just plays the same character he always plays, himself. Jay Chou was at least a fresh face in a Hollywood movie and I hope to see more of him in the future. Don't waste your money watching it in 3D.

The Fighter was a damned good movie. Christian Bale was amazing. The guy can really act, his physical transformation was impressive as is his willingness to make these transformations. Wahlberg did a fine job portraying Mickey Ward. 

True Grit was another amazing movie, the Coen brothers killed it once again. Jeff Bridges really shows true grit in this movie as does Hailee Steinfeld and Matt Damon. Like most Coen brother films, the dialogue is whip-smart and very memorable. Cinematography and pacing is top-notch. A must see movie.

Maybe next week I will get a chance to check out Black Swan.
