Critical MeMe

Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.


Glorious 39 (2011)

A young British woman, adopted as a baby into the family of a member of Parliament, stumbles onto a plan to make a deal with Hitler to avoid going to war.

There's a real tension to the story as we begin to understand, along with her, that there's real danger here.  But it all seems to be too much.  People are being blackmailed and, when that fails, killed...that I can believe.  But driving someone insane?  And out of love?  It was just too weird.

All of the "whats" were explained by the end but I still had quite a few "what the hells" left unanswered.
