This gets a point added just from Meryl Streep's performance. God damn that woman can act
Otherwise decent flick with some solid performances, Roberts, Martindale, and Sam Shepard (always great) being the standouts. There are some nice dramatic scenes, especially the dinner tirade/fight following the wake. Tends to skew on the melodramatic side though, but makes sense considering it started as a stage play. I thought Blanchett had the statues in her pocket this season, but Streep will definitely give her a run for her money.

Wolf of Wall Street 7/10 - don't see how people are considering it the "GOAT". Yea there's A-list actors but the movie is a bit stretched out and I already knew what was going to happen. TBH, the movie is pretty much the same story line as "Boiler Room" which came out in 2000.
Bad Grandpa 3/10- Literally had to close the movie out after 35 minutes
Gravity- 6/10- Too slow and Sandra Bullock was being such a ***** in the film.
You have to be high to truly appreciate this movie. There is no f'n way they made this film for anyone than those high off of something; no downers, i'm talking sativa/cocaine type high. This movie is hilarious, it has everything. There are scene where they are talking about nothing for about five minutes, its insane! You don't put such scenes in a movie for sober people, as it would annoy the hell out of them eventually. But i loved it. Jonah ****in Hill, damn this guy has really grown over the years. He may be the Paul Giamatti of the next generation. Leo was leo, great, but its always the same character. His character in this one is if his Basketball Diaries character took a left turn somewhere and this is where his life went. Great movie, its long, but i plan to watch it again. Definitely go into this expecting a cartoon. This is nothing more than a live-action cartoon. That's what makes it work for me though; they didn't hold back in trying to be that.
