    The Father

    ★★★★½

    I wish there were two awards for best actor this year. Boseman and Hopkins are both so great. The Father is the best film I have ever seen dealing with Alzheimer's, it isn't even close. By sending the viewer through the point of view of Hopkins we are able to get a sense of confusion and helplessness. Coleman is great, as usual, but Hopkins is on another level here, probably the best he has ever been, and I swore I…

    With Eastwood, Adams, and JT you would think any film would be great, however here you just have to settle for good. Eastwood and Adams didn't have much chemistry and it was hard to believe they were father/daughter. The plot of this is pretty great, I just wish they had found people that better fit the roles.

    Chasing 3000

    This is a mediocre film. The premise has promise, but just doesn't quite live up to it. The secondary storyline is actually better than the main plot. That should have been its own movie. A decent try, I just won't be jumping up to go see this again.

    The Bad News Bears

    ★★★½

    The Bad News Bears is great sports movie with an amazing lead performance. Matthau is brilliant in this as the alcoholic coach, his transformation is great. The first half of this is quite funny, the second half brings unexpected poignancy that evens this film out into someone more than the average sports movie.

  • Howards End

    Howards End

    ★★½

    Howards End is a long, slow film that lacks any real tension or drama. Although that may be the case, it sure is nice to look at. The set designs and locations are wonderful. I love Hopkins and Thompson so spending time with them is worth the time. The story of class is done well, however it didn't need 2 and half hours to make its point.
