Place beyond the pines

Unread postby YahooFanChicago » Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:20 am

Did anyone else see this movie?

I was completely disappointed.....was expecting a great movie.. plot sounded good, top actors/actresses, top director, great reviews...

The chareacters were overdone, none of them were likeable, the plot was ambiguous to a fault, excessively long, boring, predictable....

Did anyone see this and like it? If so, why?

Was in Toronto last week and saw this advertised all over the place ... probably b/c Gosling is Canadian. Never heard of it before I saw the ads. Read one review that said it was lousy. Now you have confirmed that.

Hell, if all it takes is one review and one person saying a film is lousy to make it fact, then every movie ever made would qualify as lousy under that standard. ;-) ;) :wink:

There's a dive strip club in east Y-town called "Palace in the Pines."

80% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I agree that the plot summary doesn't sound all that interesting (to me, at least).

The highly anticipated new drama from director Derek Cianfrance ("Blue Valentine") powerfully explores the consequences of motorcycle rider Luke's (Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling) fateful decision to commit a crime to support his child. The incident renders him targeted by policeman Avery (Golden Globe Award nominee Bradley Cooper), and the two men become locked on a tense collision course which will have a devastating impact on both of their families in the years following.


Maybe it's just me.

Anything that has Ryan Gosling in, is hipster gold.

Ryan Gosling's a good actor. Loved Fracture. Drive was excellent. I even liked Crazy, Stupid Love (revoke my man card if you'd like). He was terrific in Lars and the Real Girl, which was definitely a different movie.

I've managed to go this long without ever sitting through The Notebook, but from what I gather, he's really good in that.

Oh I have no problem with him, he's very talented. But he's the modern day hipsters' James Dean.
