Quick DVD Reviews

Here are some of the films I watched recently. I'm a netflix addict after all.

Body of Lies: Only interesting performance was Mark Strong's. Leo was serviceable, as for Crowe all I could think about was , look how fat he's become.

All the King's Men: This is a few years old. Rented it because it has a lot of actors I enjoy watching: Penn, Winslet, Jude Law, Mark Ruffalo, Patricia Clarkson. I was surprised by how boring and pedestrian it is. All these fantastic actors and nothing to show. Penn has a few bombastic speeches but that's it. Rent at your peril, only if you are a major fan of any of these actors and absolutely must watch all their oeuvre.

Wall-E: Not an animation fan but rented because of all the hype. Watched the first ywenty minutes or so. Not that interesting. Will go back and finish. Maybe.

I agree on Wall-E! I saw it in a theatre and thought that it was superlong. I'd say you get the point in 20 minutes.
