Argo - 6/10|
Adequate in every sense. The acting is fine, the directing is fine, everything is fine. You'll have a decent enough time watching it, but I'm baffled as to how it received such rave reviews and won so many awards. Ho hum.
Jeff, Who Lives at Home - 8/10
I didn't really know about this when I found it, but the cast of US TV sitcom actors didn't fill me with confidence. However, it's a brilliant little movie. Jason Segel plays Jeff, a 30 year-old slacker still living at home with his mother (played by Susan Sarandon). Ed Helms plays his somewhat more successful but twatty brother.
My only complaints are that it's a bit too short (it's only 83 minutes) and the storyline with the mother just kinda stops and as a result it feels a bit superfluous and only there to get them all on the bridge at the end.
I was definitely a bit misty-eyed at the end too. Definitely try and catch it if you haven't seen it.
Moonrise Kingdom - 9/10
Fantastic, and the best Wes Anderson flick I've seen (so better than The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited and The Fantastic Mr Fox). The kid actors are great, and everything about it is nigh-on perfect. The only minor issue is that Bruce Willis felt like a little bit of a miscast. Very funny and charming apart from that, though.
