Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
Watched Gangster Squad and it sucked big hairy testicles. I found it quite comedic to be honest. I just couldn't take the movie seriously and thought that it was a big mess. I've come to the conclusion that the director was a little confused as to what he was trying to achieve with the film. Josh Brolin was somewhat cringe-worthy in this film but Gosling, Penn and Ribisi were really good. I wanted to see more of Emma Stone but she didn't have much of a role in the film. I did have high expectations considering that the cast was awesome and the trailer was really good, but I was really let down. It wasn't very good. Don't waste your money.
Also watched The Impossible and thought it was very well done. Wasn't over the top and the focus on the family was really good. Some good performances from all the main actors (including the kid Lucas). The setting/s were really good and felt very real. It was really emotional though and had me tear up in a few scenes, especially in one with the brothers. Nice film.
