Default Re: Rate the last movie you watched.

Blue Valentine

2 - 2 1/2 stars.


Upset me. There were a lot of powerful scenes and the chemistry between the two was strong. The scene where he plays her the ukelele was terrific and the best scene in the film. With all the cutting, I wish I'd heard that song play throughout the film or through a stretch of edited scenes/images.


But, getting to the point...it really bugged me. It makes me wonder how supposed cinephiles can disregard such obvious issues. Ryan Gosling has a lot against him and I can't understand the transition to white trash lol. I also don't get the Williams' character...am I supposed to judge her so easily? Where are the complications?


It's uneven and lacking. Too much zoom on the actors' faces.


Luckily, the two leads are terrific. Williams is perfect and Gosling, especially, is stellar. And like I said, he does a lot with a little. Probably 2 1/2 stars, because of the actors.
