MATT DAMON’S “THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU” IS JUST PLAIN SILLY

We thought Matt Damon hit rock bottom in the bomb “Hereafter” with its’ phony metaphysical speculation and religious undertones. After the first amazing tsunami scene (thanks to the cinematographer) the movie degenerated into a dull and dreary experience. But Matt has topped that stinker with “The Adjustment Bureau.” This film is based on the unlikely premise that men in black suits and hats control our destiny under the direction of ”the chairman,” who resides somewhere in the sky. The script is absolutely silly and immature and the actors involved must be embarrassed. The plot was loosely based on a short story by sci- fi writer Philip K Dick, who must be spinning in his grave. Some short stories should REMAIN short stories.

    Wow Janet, tell us what you think! I gotta admit i thought the previews made it look exciting and a bit intriguing, and with Matt Damon on Board, as well as the fairly newly minted Emily Blunt, I was willing to give it a chance. I’ll check with Roger Ebert. He always seems to have a level head on his shoulders. Also interested in the new one with Liam Neeson.

    Funny how Ben Affleck with writing and Directing “The Town” really is the one starting to shine of the two!

    I loved this movie and look forward to a sequel. There was a lot of chemistry between the actors.

    Maybe the movie is good, maybe not. Regardless, the name of Matt Damon spells b.o.r.i.n.g.

    Janet I’m surprised you are badmouthing this film. You usually plug dreadful movies. Have a falling out with a studio boss?

    Roger Ebert has a great review of the movie on his website. He really liked it by the way and recommended it.

    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
