Will Forte agrees to drive his aging father from Billings, Montana to Lincoln, Nebraska after the older man is informed that he May Have Won $1,000,000! by a catalog sweepstakes company. It’s a pretty bleak movie about looking for meaning in a rather banal life, and trying to understand and connect with people who, were they not your family, you would have no reason to want to understand or connect with. Three well-done and interesting performances by Will Forte and his parents make this movie Worth Watching, but prospective viewers should be aware that it is also rather depressing and slow-paced.

After Matt Damon’s three brothers die in combat, Tom Hanks and his men go find him in order to spare his mother the pain of losing all her sons to the Second World War. I guess pretty much every war movie is an anti-war movie, and this one is, too. War is terrible; people kill people and then get killed themselves. People who don’t deserve to die, die anyway. Spielberg’s movie brings the tragedy of World War II to life by first humanizing the soldiers, and then going ahead and killing them. Worth Watching.

Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz go around killing people in the pre-Civil War American South. The best scenes in Quentin Tarantino’s films always revolve around tense confrontation with clever dialogue, and this movie’s got plenty of that. It also has plenty of violence, mostly done in the stylized, Kill Bill Volume 1 sort of way. Worth checking out.
