“AMERICAN HUSTLE” MOVIE REVIEW

Image

I’ve been wanting to see “American Hustle” for quite some time. The trailer just looked amazing. People walking slow to cool music. 70’s fashion. Everything you want in a trailer. Plus, there is Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams. David O. Russell is the director and I LOVED “Silver Linings Playbook.” I am sold. I am all in.

The movie is about two con artists played by, Jennifer and Christian. They are forced to set up politicians and other criminals to avoid jail time and help a FBI agent move up in the ranks.

I want to acknowledge that AH is a cool film. But, was it great? No. I thought the rhythm was off. It didn’t flow. I thought Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Christian Bale’s wife (I’ma let that sink on in for a minute) performance was just okay and Amy Adams was great and better. Now, I really like Jennifer. I do. But, I felt like she was out of her acting league. She didn’t wow me and I don’t believe she deserves an oscar nod. I think Amy deserves recognition and the applause. I really liked Louis C.K.  I’ve recently watched C.K on Jerry Seinfield’s web series and I just fell in love. I am strangely attracted to him and I don’t know why. He just does it for me. He was great in this film and in Blue Jasmine. I hope, I can meet him one day and possibly go on a date.

American Hustle is worth seeing and paying money for. But, it’s not movie of the year or anything, so don’t feel bad if you don’t get to see it. 🙂

BEN AFFLECK BATMAN BACKLASH

When I first saw that Ben Affleck would be the new Batman, I instantly hated it. He is definitely not what I had in mind. To be honest, I hadn’t had anyone in mind.  After Christian Bale, I kind of gave up on guesses and suggestions for Batman. I actually secretly hated Bale as Batman. But, I never told anyone. People seemed so satisfied with his performance. I think Heath Ledger had something to do with it. However, Christian Bale wasn’t the worst Batman. Val Kilmer always comes up when “the worst Batman” is discussed.

My favorite Batman was Michael Keaton.  When I was a little girl, I had a little crush on Michael Keaton. I think it started with “Night Shift” Or “Mr. Mom”. I just thought he had a sexy little something about him.

After some consideration, I am now open to Ben playing the caped crusader. I hope he nails it and proves everyone wrong. If he sucks, it’s “Gigli” all over again and who knows if he’ll recover this time.
