I don't get to see many movies anymore, so I try to be careful when selecting. Today however, I found myself with tome to kill and Monuments Men was showing so I figured why not.
This was a strange little movie. The idea was very good, the cast was stacked, but the movie itself was disjointed and had no flow. I am not sure if they tried to cover too much ground or what, but the movie really needed to be rewritten because they gave us a bunch of random guys floating around Europe. We know they are saving /searching for art but there is no concept of time, or character development and half the scenes don't mean anything to the one that follows.
I didn't actually hate the movie. The amount of art at stake was tremendous, but this would have been better off as a documentary.
I give it 6 out of 10. I wouldn't blame somebody for giving it less.
I thought it was decent. The scored made it a little to whimsey for me. That was the major problem, it didn't know whether to be a bit light hearted or a serious flick. The shower scene at Christmas was masterfully done.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
In one sense, this episode makes last week meaningless, since everything they did was undone. In another sense... perhaps that's overthinking. The show is always about reversals of fortune, the good guys and bad guys alternately having the upper hand.
