Little Miss Sunshine-watched with Clearplay-I don't think I laughed once during this movie. I love dark and dry comedies (such as Wes Anderson, obviously) but this wasn't even close to funny, or quirky, or anything, really. Just disturbing and so, so, so crude. A very emotionless, empty film. 4 out of 10 stars.
Water for Elephants (2011) In this captivating Depression-era melodrama, impetuous veterinary student Jacob Jankowski joins a celebrated circus as an animal caretaker but faces a wrenching dilemma when he's transfixed by angelic married performer Marlena.
