Big Wedding Movie Review - MovieHookup.com

The Big Wedding was actually a fun light hearted film that was perhaps too short to fully develop the characters and take advantage of the talents of the big-name cast. 

The movie may be titled the Big Wedding of the younger cast members, but the film is primarily about the relationships between the adult parents and step-parents: Robert Di Nero, Diane Keaton, and Susan Sarandon. 

Di Nero is okay, but could have benefited from more screen time.  He is great a intense drama, but in the past few years he seems to have focused on light comedy and Big Wedding is basically a light comedy.

Lincoln Movie Review - Watch for Free

Lincoln is an interesting movie in that Daniel Day-Lewis' performance takes up all the air in the room.  Also, his slightly whiny voice is annoying and unnatural for him.  It may be historically accurate for Abe Lincoln to have a soft voice, but it was grating and nasally during the movie. 

In addition, I feel that Daniel's complete method acting makes the other actors uncomfortable and stand-offish.  Sure, Lincoln as president demands respect, but I sensed some lack of human connection in the interactions.  The movie became more about watching one person's performance, rather than the performance of people creating a relationship. 

This immersion acting may be effective for intense psychopaths like Daniel Plainview who demand a sense of fear from the other actors.  But I got the feeling that Day-Lewis became so focused on becoming and being Lincoln, that he couldn't establish the basic shared empathy with the other actors that would show the humanity of Abe Lincoln and Day-Lewis. 

The movie is interesting to watch in that it displays the political machinations that went into passing the 13th Amendment.  It was particularly interesting to watch the secondary characters attempt to bribe and cajole men into passing the legislation.

Olympus Has Fallen - Like Die Hard in the White House

Olympus Has Fallen is a fun action movie that is similar to Die Hard, where one man, played by Gerard Butler, is able to stop North Korean terrorists who have taken over the White House and held the President hostage.  Its a good movie, and seems similar to White House Down, where Channing Tatum plays a hero cop saving the President from terrorists.

Oblivion Review - Tom Cruise shows he is slightly human

Oblivion is a unique Sci-Fi movie about a Drone repairman played by Tom Cruise.  Despite being primarily a sci-fi/action movie, Cruise manages to remind audiences he has some acting skill by showing slightly human emotions of sadness and suffering.  But he was going through a divorce from Katie Holmes during filming, so maybe he became less of a intense robot in real life. 

The film has a lot of potential and the action special effects are amazing and visually spectacular.  The director is the same person who created Tron Legacy, which is a better overall movie, but the production value is similar. 

I think if there was a better lead actor who can better show sadness, pain, and suffering, the movie would have been more effective.  Despite his best efforts, Tom Cruise is just too robotic and has a one note personality of "intense action hero" that he cannot seem to do drama anymore.  He certainly has an aversion to crying on film. 

Perhaps someone like Russell Crowe in his prime could have brought out the emotions.  Cruise does a great job in the action scenes, but he can't deliver a sincere emotional connection with his onscreen wife or with the audience.

Silver Linings Playbook - Movie Review Putlocker

Silver Linings Playbook is a great movie about crazy people by former crazy person David O. Russell.

The film's director is known for angry outbursts towards his actors and fighting with George Clooney.

However, Bradley Cooper seems to have excelled in this indie movie and has finally arrived as a dramatic actor with range.  Cooper finally shows interesting layers of vulnerability that garnered him a much-deserved Oscar nomination. 

Russell knows how to create stories about wild, crazy characters.  This movie is interesting, funny, and an enjoyable but educational experience about mental illness.
