^ I loved Moneyball
and that was one of Brad Pitt's best performance to me.
but yeah most of the time you have to give a good performance in a good film, if you do crap after crap it won't matter how good you were, but they choose their script and the people they work with well, they're not stupid.
Mission Impossible 4 was amazing, so much fun that I went to see it twice, I rarely do that.
Take Shelter is in my Top10 of 2011 so good, haunting and amazing performances from Chastain (her again) and Michael Shannon.
Can't wait to see it! YOUNG ADULT
was incredible, Charlize Theron deserves an Oscar nom for her performance, she was truly amazing. There were a few moments in this movie where I wanted to jump at the screen and strangle Charlize's character. Great supporting cast too. Patton Oswalt (United States of Tara) in particular. This movie is a bit different than other Diablo Cody movies, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I saw MONEYBALL
a while ago, I guess I forgot to write about it. I was impressed with Brad Pitt's performance. Jonah Hill did absolutely nothing for me, though. The movie extremely well manages to be both funny and emotional in all the right places, that's a great thing. The only thing that bothered me was how little the movie made me care about baseball. This movie could've been far better than it is.
