Movie Madness Monday 22

Welcome back.  This is a weekly meme where bloggers can share their thoughts on movies.  Any movie review is welcome including, new releases, old favorites or new found favorites.

What I am Reviewing:

American Hustle

Clearly this movie is well received by the critics.  This Golden Globe winning movie was not what I expected.  Based on the previews I imagined a con job movie that was slick and glamourous with just a bit of corruption from the 70's.  In seeing the film, the con itself was a bit clunky.  I was in love with the acting in the movie.

Jennifer Lawrence was spectacular and totally deserved the Golden Globe she received last night.  Amy Adams, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper were all amazing.  Another aspect that I loved was the music, it was everything that I grew up with.  My parents were in their 20's during the 70s and thats the music they related too and played on repeat.

Overall, I have watched a lot of feel good comedies and perhaps was expecting a little less that the film gave.  I am happy that I saw this but probably would have waited until it was on BlueRay.

What I have reviewed (last 5):

The Heat
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The Incredible Hulk
This is the End
