I still need to get my booty out to the movie houses. The Oscars are looming!!!
This past week, I watched Hell or High Water on DVD. It's about two brothers (Chris Pine and Ben Foster) who start robbing banks to raise money to save the family ranch from foreclosure. Jeff Bridges plays the lawman after them. He's been nominated for Best Supporting Actor and the film was nominated for Best Picture. I thought both were weak nominations, but what do I know? It was good, but...
Cafe Society is a cute Woody Allen film about a guy from New York (Jesse Eisenberg) who heads out to California hoping that his bigwig talent agent uncle (Steve Carell) can hook him up with a job. Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively and Parker Posey also star in this movie. There's romance, there's comedy, there's heartache...I really liked it.
