7 Word Movie Reviews: Knight & Day, Winter's Bone


Knight & Day
Diaz' ditz mode delights. Good visual gags.
B/B-



Winter's Bone
Fine ensemble chillier than milieu. Great music.
B+

When they filmed Knight and Day in Boston, I sat at a table next to Cameron Diaz at Tea Luxe and she looked PISSY. Glad she's still got some charisma onscreen because she was not giving it in person.

Fun reviews. I saw Winter's Bone two nights ago and like it a lot. I was going to see Knight and Day last night but opted instead to go see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Any thoughts on Lawrence's performance?

Glad to hear Diaz impresses. She's an underrated actress and comparable to Goldie Hawn on a good day (though I love Hawn MUCH more).

Glad to hear even more good word on Winter's Bone. I'm seeing it tomorrow or Saturday along with I am Love (WWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!). What about Love Ranch? I see you have it at C-/D+...ouch.

How about a 7-word review for Alice in Wonderland? I see you gave it an "F". I thought the film had some positives and at least it portrayed a feminist sensibility??

Saw Winter's Bone at the Florida Film Festival in April. Didn't understand all of the hype. Thought Lawrence was really good, but could not get really invested in the film's story. I liked it, but in a B/B- kind of way. I gave it a heap of extra credit for its modest budget--you don't see these kind of character films too often anymore.

Terry -- i got more than 7 words for that one ;)

James -- i'm not as big of a fan as some others but thought it was really solid across the board.

7 word review of Alice in Wonderland: Solid entertainment. But refuses belief in Wonderland.

Can't wait for Winter's Bone to be released in my area. I found the book to be quite fascinating, and am looking forward to the Merab character. Is she good?

NATHANIEL R said...

walter -- hers was maybe my favorite performance (!)

Opening this weekend are Knight and Day-pass.

Grownups-hell no.

Dogtooth-I want to see it, but it's not playing anywhere near me. And the NC-17 rating makes me a little mervous.
