Re: Last movie impressions
The Fighter - great movie, deserves all the praise it gets. I usually make fun of Mark Wahlberg but he actually can act if he wants to. I just wonder why he doesn't seem to bother in most movies? Christian Bale is amazing and Amy Adams as well. If you don't have some sort of pathologic hatred against boxing or families you should watch this movie.
The Adjustment Bureau - interesting premise but falls flat in the end. It gets pretty flat around the middle already. I can't put my finger on it but the longer the movie went on, the more I got bored. I had the feeling the director realized somewhere halfway that he only has a script for a 1 hour movie but needs to fill two. The trailer was also a bit misleading. I expected Matt Damon to do what he usually does - running over rooftops - and while there is some running involved its not much on rooftops. A slight disappointment on that part.
Flags of Our Fathers - quite good movie, should be watched in conjunction with Letters from Iwo Jima. Didn't really blow me away but maybe I just saw too many WW2 movies from the US standpoint already?
