  1. I NEED more ink from you on Fathers and Daughters (specifically on God and his performance within it).

    1. Haha, God is good, but the film is BAD.

  2. I watched quite a few films last month, mostly older pictures, but only one of these...and only today.

    It was Fathers & Daughters which I'm sad to say I more or less hated. Crowe's portion wasn't too bad, though it underused Jane Fonda, but Seyfried's character was loathsome and stupid and I felt zero sympathy for her.

    I am looking forward to catching several of these others, though not London Has Fallen since I thought the Olympus Has Fallen was a piece of junk and I can't imagine this is an improvement especially considering your grade.

    1. Crowe is easily the highlight of Fathers and Daughters, which could've been a really interesting drama. Too bad, as he gives an awards-friendly performance that will be completely overlooked.

      Olympus Has Fallen is a total guilty pleasure (as is White House Down from that year) for me, but London Has Fallen is pretty much appalling from start to finish. A C- is quite generous, actually.
