MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK
The Irishman (2019)
“A mob hitman recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.”
I was hesitant because of the run time but I was hooked pretty quickly and I never really felt the three and a half-hour run time. It’s well-paced with tremendous performances by pretty much everyone involved. It was damn good to see Joe Pesci again. I wasn’t big on Al Pacino here and I can’t really tell you why. Also, there is one scene that is just dreadful to watch both De Niro act in and Scorcese direct. Other than those two issues, Scorcese made an almost flawless film that is simply great cinema. (4.75/5)
Fighting with My Family (2019)
“A former wrestler and his family make a living performing at small venues around the country while his kid’s dream of joining World Wrestling Entertainment.”
Florence Pugh is really the only reason to give this a watch unless you are a wrestling fan. It has its moments with a decent message behind all of the melodramatic cliches. Never dull but never great. (3.4567/5)
Her Smell (2019)
“A self-destructive punk rocker struggles with sobriety while trying to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success.”
This was a rough watch but that is the intention. Moss plays an out of control Courtney Love type rock star who seems to be barely holding on to reality, among other things. She delivers a decent performance but there is just way too much talking going on here and it was difficult to care about any of these people or what was going on. (3/5)
