MOVIES SEEN THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22 (#41-47)

  1. Magic Mike XXL *
    Can't believe I sat through this.
  2. Mountain Men *
    Oh, Canada.
  3. Trumbo ****
    Bryan Cranston and Elle Fanning worked beautifully together in this movie.
  4. The Giver **
    A bit of a clunker, but it's hard to imagine how else they could have made this into a movie.
  5. Steve Jobs ****
    It's hard for me to imagine when I might ever want to see this again. But as unpleasant as it was, it was also very impressive.
  6. 45 Years ***
    Rampling and the bizarrely tragic imagery are haunting, but this film is occasionally slow enough to surpass a glacier.
  7. Joy ***
    Extremely uneven, frustrating film.
