I really love seeing Ryan Reynolds in dramatic roles. Although I felt like he could have dug a little deeper with this one, overall I really enjoyed the film despite it being a bit slow moving. I wish there had been a few more loose ends tied up toward the end, though.
Slow moving, but very emotional, and I liked that it portrayed musicians as human beings capable of caring about each other. Anne Hathaway is one of my favorite actresses, but there are no bad performances here. Definitely worth seeing!
Kudos to Jake Gyllenhaal for a fantastic performance, but I couldn't enjoy the movie because his character was such a scumbag. I didn't find it overly realistic either, and honestly I think I only kept watching because his performance was riveting.
Yet another movie you really need to see for yourself, and forget about the critics. I had reservations because I had heard some less than shining reviews, but I loved it. In fact, I enjoyed it more than the first film. Already looking forward to the conclusion!
Normally I expect the movies that get all the Oscar buzz to be an overwhelming disappointment, and often I don't bother watching them at all. I couldn't pass this one up for the sole reason that I love Eddie Redmayne, and this is far and away the best performance of his career to date. His Oscar was well deserved, and the film as a whole is brilliant and beautiful. I will definitely be watching this again.
