So Ken Cannon and I saw WOMAN IN GOLD last week and I liked it. I thought the story was interesting and the flashbacks were affecting. Also, who doesn't love some Dame Helen and well. Hello, Ryan Reynolds. You are a tall, tall drink, Ryan Reynolds.
Also, I think he's a pretty good actor and has nice abs to go along with the chops.
Okay. I make it a point to never read reviews before I see something, so as soon as we got home, I pulled up Rotten Tomatoes and was a little surprised to see that only 50% of the critics liked the movie. They thought it was dull. And cheesy. Hallmark-y, even, because you know nothing says Hallmark-y like Nazis. And a few of the reviews were actively hateful.
A lot of you see more movies than I do. I'm looking at YOU, Lisa B and James. While it wasn't the best film I've ever seen, I didn't think it was as terrible as some people obviously did. What am I missing?
I'd like your honest opinions here. I'm totally okay if you hated the movie. I just feel like I've had a major lapse in taste or something, and now I'm not allowed to sit at the popular kids' table anymore.
