A couple of movie reviews

So, I watched a couple of movies recently, and they were good movies, but I sort of hated a couple of the main characters.

The first was Fences, which has an awesome cast: Denzel, Viola Davis, Jovan Adepo, Mykelti Williamson, Russell Hornsby, Stephen Henderson... they were all great. Russell Hornsby gets a special mention.

It's a very talky movie, which is fine, I love talky movies - - Glengarry Glenn Ross is a favorite of mine.

It was Denzel's character that I didn't care for. I know, it was how men acted back then, he had a bad childhood... but he chose not to have a good relationship with his son. And cheated on his wife.

I'm not sorry I watched it, and would watch again.

The second was Infinitely Polar Bear. Again, awesome cast... Zoe Saldana, Mark Ruffalo, Imogene Wolodarsky(amazing, and she reminds me of one my nieces so much), Ashley Aufderheide.

Imogene Wolodarsky is the daughter of Maya Forbes, who wrote and directed it, based on her childhood. The character is Imogene plays is based on her mother. Amelia and her sister stayed with their bi-polar father while their mother went to school. It's Mark Ruffalo's character, Cam, the father, who annoyed the shit out of me. That cigarette hanging from his mouth in damn near every scene didn't help matters. It kind of colored the whole movie for me. Not sure I will watch this one again, because Cam is in so many scenes.

I've not seen Fences. Hubby watched it and it stirred up a lot of his negative feelings towards his own father, I think, because he told me it was a good movie but he didn't like it and wouldn't watch it again. *shrugs*
