Last 5 movies reviewed, Twitter-style

True Grit

Continuing my movie reviews in 140 characters or fewer:

  • Restrepo (2010)
    Harrowing documentary following a platoon of US soldiers deployed in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. Disturbing yet very touching.
  • 127 Hours (2010)
    Boyle sometimes goes a little over board with his style choices, but beneath all that lies a great performance by Franco. Good score, too.
  • Alice in Wonderland (2010)
    The story and the performances unfortunately drown in a design overflow that wears off its novelty way too soon.
  • Blue Valentine (2010)
    Chronicling the sweet beginning and bitter ending of a relationship with stunning, sometimes uncomfortable performances by Williams and Gosling.
  • True Grit (2010)
    Hailee Steinfeld dominates the film and it’s a joy to watch her act on one level with greats Bridges, Damon and Brolin. Beautifully shot.
