|03.04.15||Netflix|| Huh. I really expected to like this, but it left me pretty flat. It was slow and seemed to meander a bit and I never felt like Carell played past his nose. Tatum and Ruffalo were good but again the story felt too loose and meandering to me. I also didn't full understand when the rift between Tatum and Carell formed. I guess that rift was supposed to motivate the end but it didn't for me so the end seemed exceedingly random and distanced. I never really felt like I understood any of the characters, although I applaud the wrestling training that both actors underwent and Carell's physical comedy made me chuckle (like when he jogs around the gym).|
Disappointment considering all the good stuff everybody had to say about it, but then again I had similar feelings about Capote (although I think I ended up liking that one more than this). And whatever that type of score is... the music in this seemed like every other Best Picture nominee ever. I feel like everything about this was trying pretty hard to win awards. It left me kind of bored.
