Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
Zero Dark Thirty was really good, but there is no way it's anywhere near as good as it's been hyped up to be. It's a good story and the acting is superb, but there was nothing in it to raise it above other certain films from 2012, like, nothing was done particularly greatly in it. It was just a matter of fact straight forward type of deal which is fine and dandy, but there wasn't anything to get me to completely care about it. Saying that I enjoyed it and it was never slow or dull despite it's long running time. Chastain was brilliant, and it had a couple of tense moments but nothing that compared to Argo, which as a true to life thriller was far better.
