civil war

This movie looked so good that I went to the theater to see it this afternoon. And, it was well worth the $7! It was about 4 journalists who were reporting on a civil war in America and were on their way to the White House to attempt to interview the president. Why was there a civil war? That wasn’t addressed, so you’ll have to use your imagination. It shouldn’t be hard to come up with some ideas. I’m going to have to go to more afternoon movies at the Westwood Plaza Theatre. There were only 5 of us watching the movie. Just 4 more people than I usually watch movies with. I’m not sure how that place stays open. Hopefully they get a bigger evening crowd.

The one main actor looked familiar, but I couldn’t place him. It turns out it was the same actor who played Pablo Escobar on Narcos. He lost the 40 lbs. that he gained to play that role, so that explains why I didn’t recognize him. Kirsten Dunst was awesome, too. Nothing against her, but that’s not a sentence I’ve ever uttered before. And, Jesse Plemons (the actor I love to hate), played another evil character in one scene of this movie (also known as my favorite scene). But, I doubt he will ever have a role that is more messed-up than Todd on Breaking Bad.

My rating: 4/5
