Small Town Saturday Night Reviews

    Wallows in its grounded, almost buried, smallness. One wonders how any creative inspiration could be culled from such surroundings, which would've made a better topic herein.

    Cannot deny that I'd never have given this movie a second glance if it wasn't for Chris Pine. It's takes a long slow look at the intertwined lives of small town folk. Chris Pine may be the main attraction but every single actor plays their part to perfection. Just to add... I was blown away by Chris Pine's singing at the end. Who knew?!!

    Local town story of resident trying to make it into the big time. Chris Pine is subtle and slow moving into an obvious laid back storyline.

    This was really boring and pointless. I didn't get anything new out of watching this.

    The beginning was slow and kept waiting for it to pick up and get interesting and it never did. I was disappointed with the movie.

    I like Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness). I think he's got charisma and a movie star quality. However, he sometimes picks features that don't let him shine the way he does in 'Star Trek' or even the much-maligned 'This Means War'. This is one of those features. It's probably best that it flew under the radar, despite having Oscar winner Octavia Spencer (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters) and multi-nominee John Hawkes (The Sessions) amongst the co-stars. It really just plays out like a soap-opera set in some redneck part of Tennessee. I was looking forward to him singing, since he'll be appearing in 'Into the Woods' next year, but there wasn't much to judge his talent on besides one song and a lot of introspective strumming of his guitar. He shows inklings of talent, but is hamstrung by a sappy, but not entirely unlikeable story.

    A good movie, felt like I was watching Friday Night Lights with no major dramatic events. The most surprising storyline was the thought of a small town and that everybody is related one way or another. Chris Pine couldn't carry this movie by itself but overall it is a good movie to watch once.

    Good because Chris Pine was in it. Better than anyone else. It was too much of a cliffhanger. I wanted there to be a sequel.
