Wow. It has definitely been quite some time since my last entry. I’ve been watching movies but I’ve just been too busy to write about them. I have a few minutes to spare now, so I thought I would take the time to write up about Trouble With The Curve.
I will admit to being a little biased when watching this movie just because from the get go I felt reminded of Brad Pitt’s Moneyball (2011), partially from some of the lines said along with a few vague similarities between plots. I will say that without a doubt, Moneyball is the better movie, but Trouble With The Curve is not without its own charms.
For those wondering, how “badass” Clint Eastwood is in this movie, I’ll tell you what I told my Twitter buddy (and fellow movie fanatic) Shah Shahid. On a scale from The Bridges of Madison County (1995) to Dirty Harry (1971), I’d place it close to Gran Torino (2008). His role is mostly just him as a cranky old man that has difficulties expressing affection towards his daughter.
People out there might disagree with me, but I actually don’t mind Justin Timberlake as an actor. I think he does well, even outside of the chick flick genre—like when he did In Time (2011) with Amanda Seyfried. As for Amy Adams, her role her kind of reminded me of her role as Charlene Fleming in The Fighter (2010).
There were two instances in the movie where I actually shed a little tear, which actually surprised me a little. Other than that, the rest of the movie seemed to flow the way I expected it to.
FINAL VERDICT: C-
If you’re looking for a movie that’s good for passing the time, this might be one you might want to watch.
