    Rachel Getting Married

    ★★★★

    When it was raw and honest it was at its best but other times it just felt too neat and tidy (hence the deduction of a star). The performances are excellent and the juxtaposition of Kim's melancholy and the celebration of a wedding added a lot of realness to it.

  • The Last Days of Disco

    The Last Days of Disco

    ★★★

    I don't like it when the soundtrack is the best part of the movie. I wanted to like this so much more than I did but I found the characters so superficial and whiny. And as soon as someone would start to get a little depth where I could really get into it they'd get annoying again. Not a total waste but not something I want to sit through again.

    Little Women

    ★★★

    There are far better adaptations of "Little Women" out there. This movie is very pretty and the cast is good. For me the problem is that while it told the story it lacked all the warmth of the book which other productions have been able to convey (and yes, I've read the book many, many times). The characters are often lacking depth and I'm just so disappointed in this as so many people raved about it.

    Requiem for a Heavyweight

    ★★★½

    Anthony Quinn never ceases to amaze me. He's astounding as the titular heavyweight and although the film didn't really resonate with me on a personal level I was able to empathize with Quinn's character which just shows the strength of his performance.
