Three sentence movie reviews: Bridge of Spies

bridge_of_spies

All around, a well-crafted movie, from the opening (mostly silent) sequence, to the end, which managed to not get caught up in being too overwrought about anything.  This is the kind of movie which is pleasurable, even if in post-movie conversation you find many flaws to the overall story.  Mark Rylance was fun to watch as arrested Russian spy Rudolf Abel.

Cost: free to me, because Matt treated me for my birthday
Where watched: McMenamin’s St. Johns Theater

I dislike this poster and was not isolated in my thoughts.  I copy for you an IMP Awards comment interchange that made me laugh:

I’m way more interested in how you managed to spell Spielberg right and nothing else.

  1. This is one of those films I can’t seem to get excited for, even though I know that it’s likely very good, and I’m sure that Tom Hanks is as excellent as ever. Maybe it’ll win Best Picture and I’ll have to watch it. 😉

    1. Yeah. Every once in a while I run across a movie that I know I should want to see, but I just don’t. This movie could have been one of those. You might enjoy the German…
