The Judge (2014)

25 Oct 2014

silly humor

empathy and sympathy

cliché message

immersive atmosphere
beautiful scenes

unacceptable suspense (developments predicted too early)
acceptable suspense (developments predicted minutes before)
exceptional suspense (developments not predicted)

untraceable (natural) acting


Dale’s story made the judge looked so much more like an asshole in the beginning, gave the story a more unconvincing hollywood twist

seems to be a role tailored for Robert D Jr . he’s showing up like the same person all over the place now. don’t make me hate you like I hate morgan freeman.

story is a bit cliche especially consider so many disfunctional family funeral things I’ve watched already. but it got a bit more interesting pass when I realize why henry was “banished” (as his daughter asked about the trophies)
