The Glass Castle (2017)
Should have been so much more GRIPPING!
First off, I have never read the book the film is based on and had no real understanding of what I was about to watch. But I decided to go to the theater today and give it shot. I had recently watched "short term 12" also directed be Destin Daniel Cretton. Since he was on my radar I noticed "The glass castle" was just being released so I figured why not see it but unfortunately it didn't really feel like a valuable use of my time.
Like previous reviewers have said this film is not nearly as effective as a movie like "captain fantastic" in depicting a unconventional family. All in all it just feels very dry and pointless, in a strange way. I can't recommend this one. Really wanted to like it.
3 Idiots (2009)
3 idiots is 3 hours well spent
This movie is delightful, a movie you can enjoy on multiple viewings. As an American who is new to the Bollywood scene, I can honestly say I was shocked on how much life and happiness is contained in every scene of this movie as well as the other Aamir Khan films I have seen so far(Dangal and Like stars on earth). Never once did I feel disconnected from the scenarios the movie puts us in. Another remarkable note is that at basically 3 hours at the end I still wanted more. In short this movie should be a required viewing for any cinema geek. A true classic, its crazy someone did a remake...
