American Hustle is a lot of fun. It's legitimately funny. It's incredibly stylish. And the performances are all stellar, particularly Jeremy Renner who broke my heart in one scene from Act III. If you love Goodfellas, if you love Boogie Nights, American Hustle is a truly enjoyable period piece and yet another solid effort from David O. Russell.
Oldboy has it's moments, most of them in the last 30 minutes, but there are so many things about it that are just so genuinely awful that it's hard to get behind the movie as a whole. Also I don't like Josh Brolin. I just don't. So there it is. Meh.
