She's one of my favs but her performance in American Hustle is overrated. She was better in the Hunger Games movie

Her performance is generally strong in 'The Hunger Games', but it also features some of her worst acting moments. Especially in the scene where she's being escorted away and calling out to Primrose. And, the last frames of her facial expression changes was horrendous and didn't feel the least bit authentic.

I thought Lawrence was great in Silver Linings Playbook and deserved all the accolades for that. Her performance/character was about the only thing I liked about that movie.

In American Hustle though? She just felt out of place in that role. Wasn't bad by any means but there's three better performances she's nominated against (I haven't see the Julia Roberts one). IMO, she shouldn't be in the Oscar discussion this year.

Marion Cotillard's performance in 'Rust and Bone' was so vastly superior. I'm still at a loss as to why she wasn't even nominated for an Oscar. One of the all-time greatest snubs.

And, Bradley Cooper was actually solid in SLP.

The DeNiro gambling sideplot was so ridiculous and took me out of the great central relationship. It was treated in such a weirdly light-hearted manner even though he was ruining his own business or something ??(I can't remember the exact details). The movie would have been better without it.

Finally watched American Hustle - 6/10. Mediocre, not Oscar worthy.

A Serious Man - 9/10

One of my favorite and most underrated Coen brothers films.
