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.


A Hijacking (2013)

A cargo ship with a crew of 7 is overtaken by a group of Somali pirates who demand ransom from the company that owns the ship. Against advice that he’s too emotionally involved, the CEO of the company carries on the negotiations himself.

It’s tense without being exploitative and I was especially absorbed by the boardroom debating and waiting.
