You Win Some, You Lose Some
HERE. It's really hard to make my feelings about this film understood. On the one hand, I absolutely respect it and admire it as a film experience, but as something I love and adore as a film? That's another matter entirely. As a film, I can't help but feel that it is more spectacle and style over any sort of lasting or important substance. Sandra was fine. But............I feel any of the other Best Actress noms (particularly Amy Adams or Cate Blanchett) could have taken the film to a truly amazing level and actually made you care. Sandra just never pulled it off for me. So deserving it was of its technical awards and even direction...but I'm glad it didn't take anything TOO substantial.
AMERICAN HUSTLE - Dying to see this one and I shall once it hits DVD in mere weeks.
HER - Her? Also anxiously awaiting this to come out on DVD. Hopefully within the next month or two it will be out and I can report back.
