March '08 Movie Update

This may have been a first for me and Amie - we went through the month without going to the movies. I still saw some movies, on my laptop, but not at the theater. Amie decided to pass and read her book instead so I only have my rankings to update.

  • No Country For Old Men
    Entertaining factor: 3.5 / 5
    Plot factor: 3.5 / 5
    Overall: 3.5 / 5
    Comments: Its definitely a unique and interesting movie. But is it worthy of Best Picture? I think Atonement and Juno are better. But Javier Bardem was really spooky and he probably deserves his Oscar.

  • In the Valley of Elah
    Entertaining factor: 3 / 5
    Plot factor: 2.5 / 5
    Overall: 3 / 5
    Comments: Another heavy movie to watch. It was slow paced but the writing and cast were interesting enough to keep me in it through the end. But after I told Amie what happened in this movie, she was glad she skipped it. Of the three this month, this would be the one to skip.

  • The Assassination of Jesse James...
    Entertaining factor: 3.5 / 5
    Plot factor: 3.5 / 5
    Overall: 3.5 / 5
    Comments: This movie fits in between the previous two movies. Its not as captivating as No Country, but definitely more than Elah. Brad Pitt was quite good (did I just say that?) but I was really impressed with Casey Affleck's performance.

Yes, those are in the queue MD...I saw "There Will Be Blood" this month so you'll see it in my April update. I have "Into the Wild" but it won't make it until my May update. Thanks for asking :)
