Bio:
I'm a graduate of the University of Western Ontario (BA English/French, 2006) and the University of Toronto (MA Comparative Literature, 2007), but after spending so much time reading in school, I have missed a great deal of movies. (This is why I have posted the list of shame, check it out and marvel at what I haven't seen.) Some nitpicky stuff: 1. I don't record being "not interested" in a movie because it's too much work and it counts as a negative review making me "less compatible" with you as a friend - I don't think it's a bad movie... I'm just not interested. :) 2. Please, don't "recommend" a movie to me without actually writing anything (especially one I've already reviewed). 3. I don't do widgets, and rarely quizzes. I'm not here to IM, to meet a mail-order bride or to support any other ways people misuse this site. I'm here to talk about movies; if you like to do that too, then let's be friends! 4. Still reading? Ok, fine, be promoted to. I'm a published short story writer. My site is www.danielperryfiction.com. I'm also on Facebook and Twitter, (details on my site). Like/Follow me!

The Monuments Men

The Monuments Men

(2014)

It took a really long time for me to connect with these characters and this story but eventually it felt worth my while. There are a few truly beautiful moments, but it's a film that struggles with pacing and tone - it flirts with the whimsy of Kelly's Heroes but becomes much more of a historical drama, in the end, (never mind that the drama never quite gets intense enough). The stakes never quite resonate - maybe because the ensemble's too big, and the story gets spread too thin between so many characters? - and as a whole, the movie is too glossy or something; it just doesn't feel important. But it's pleasant to watch and Cate Blanchett steals every scene she's in, so there's that. Another so-so George Clooney-directed movie, in all.

All I'll say for the moment is: "Could have been so much better." Full review forthcoming.
