Our month of May takes a bit of a downturn with the film In Time, which just can’t seem to make up its mind what movie it wants to be. There are a few solid hooks throughout, but they never really pan out and never get much deeper than surface level. It’s quite the frustrating watch, but the cast is strong and our main man JT continues to impress with his charisma and utter watchability, even if he struggles a little as the leading man. Really, we just wished this movie could have picked a path and stuck to it.
First Rough Night and then Girl With A Pearl Earring. We swear we didn’t intend to review two clunkers back to back in our month of ScarJo, but here we are. Truth be told, Girl With A Pearl Earring isn’t a bad film and in fact has some really good moments in it. The problem is that everything surrounding those good moments is just…boring. You’ll be happy to know, however, that the painting remains a masterpiece.
