Truthfully I don’t even remember when this movie was out in the theatres. But when the awards came around this movie was all the talk. I like the actors that were in this movie. There was Jeff Bridges, who won for Best Actor, Robert Duvall, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Colin Farrell. After all of the hoopla, I checked it out and thought it would be a pretty good watch. I mean I like country music (yes I am one of “those” people) and it seemed like a good story with great actors.
OK so am I only the one that didn’t find this movie to be one of the best movies of this year? Oh wait, no, my mother didn’t either, she counts right?
The movie started out very slow and I kept thinking it was going to pick up and start getting interesting…it never happened. Granted there were some good parts but they were small and very few and far between. You basically could tell what was going to happen before it did. There wasn’t much excitement or thrill in this movie. The ending was even more disappointing.
I am glad I didn’t waste the money on seeing it in the theatres. However, to me it was still a waste of my time to watch it.
Have you seen the movie? What were your thoughts on it?
