heavens-to-bear i tried watching Ides of March. i was laughing too hard when ERW asks Gosling for 900 bucks for an abortion, had to turn it off. Clooney has the worst taste.
Oof yeah that one is really bad. Clooney's career since Michael Clayton has been pretty rough but you know what, he's super rich and happily married so I guess he's living his best life, nbd. Hail, Caesar! is the only half-way decent movie he's been in in the past decade, imo. I haven't seen Catch-22 on Hulu though, that got some good reviews and looks interesting. I hope he reconnects with Soderbergh at some point. I rewatched Out of Sight a while ago and it's still one of my favorites.

Re-watched Last of the Mohicans recently. Cinematography is still great, screenplay still so/so, acting still horrible. 6/10.
Beautifully shot movie by MM...
The natural light.
The siege of the fort near the beginning. Every one was muddy and looked legit stinky.
Great period piece.

I watched The American. The plot sounds interesting but the movie is boring as shit. Only saving grace is that hot Italian woman that Clooney hooks up with.

As far as Daniel Day Lewis goes, In the Name of the Father was his best. JMHO.

well said, i should amend and say that Clooney has pretty good taste in roles, maybe somewhat uneven as a director.

Out of Sight was a real epiphany just for J Lo's chemistry

It's worth a watch as the cinematography really is spectacular.
The soundtrack is also quite good, as are the period details: particularly relating to siege warfare etc.

I quite like The American, as well as Syriana.

Also, I rewatched Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? the other day...

His recent The Midnight Sky was quite forgettable though.

Syriana was great but I didn’t really like The American. It was too slow paced with too much of Clooney making faces not doing anything.

^ When other elements come together (can be something as intangible as 'the right mood'), I'm perfectly fine with a languid pace. Actually, I believe that the above mentioned two movies are the only ones with Clooney that I've liked well enough to add to the DVD collection for repeat viewings. But of course, different strokes.

“The Deer Hunter” is, for me, an all time great with glacial pacing. Certainly need to be in the right mood to watch it.

I recall once watching it at around 11am on a hungover saturday morning with a bunch of buddies in college. About halfway through we started drinking again. Made for a weird rest of the day/night.

The American was not bad IMO. Nothing special, but I have seen it several times.

I am having to move this up to excellent.

1) I am continuing to think about it and 2) the more I think about it the more it sticks.

This is a 90ish minute movie on Prime. The plot is really incidental to the whole movie. At the risk of sounding dismissive or cliche it really is an Indie Cineaste Movie. I really don't know what else to compare it to. It's a little more standard than art house but more successful than experimental student filmmaking.

I don't know, man. It's causing me to think about some changes that need to happen in my life and how I'll handle them. What my choices will have on others. Yeah, good stuff.
