Random Review of the Day -Crazy Heart

Maybe I missed something when I watched Crazy Heart. It got great reviews, and Jeff Bridges won an Oscar for it. But damn, I was bored. Not only was I bored, but I found that I didn't care all that much about the characters. Now, I like Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal. They weren't the problems. It was simply the movie itself. It wasn't all that original, and Bridges' washed-up country star was your typical alcoholic who still attracts women with...I don't know, allure? I guess being a musician will do that no matter who you are, even if you smell, are fat, and old.

It got a little better towards the end. I wasn't as bored as I was through most of it, and there were a few minutes of drama that interested me. I think there is a message in this movie and it will touch certain people, but it didn't do it for me. It was riddled with cliches and dragged in parts. Overall, it was okay, and I wouldn't watch it again.

My grade -C+
