I Watched It For You ~ Pride and Glory

Pride and Glory
A corruption scandal fractures a family of New York City cops when detective Ray Tierney is tasked with investigating a police precinct run by his older brother. As if that weren’t enough, Ray’s fellow officer and friend might be dirty, too. (Netflix) Could have been very good, but ends up as a mixed-bag. It’s well made, but it felt like a lot of scenes could have been cut. You might like it if you’re a fan of this genre. My Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #315 ~ Thin Ice

Thin Ice
Yes! This is the kind of hidden gem I’m looking for. A black comedy mixture of Fargo, A Simple Plan, and The Spanish Prisoner. Midwest insurance salesman Mickey Prohaska (Greg Kinnear) hatches a get-rich-quick scheme that depends on him gaining possession of a rare and precious violin, but his planned score results in wild and unexpected consequences. Alan Arkin, Billy Crudup and Lea Thompson co-star in this meditation on lying and its consequences, written by sisters Jill and Karen Sprecher (Clockwatchers). (Netflix) My Rating: 4.75 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #313 ~ The American

The American
Dispatched to a small Italian town to await further orders, assassin Jack (George Clooney) embarks on a double life that may be more relaxing than is good for him. (Netflix) Takes it’s time, and there are no crazy James Bond action scenes, but it’s a good spy flick. My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars.
