A random pick off the shelf this time – “Mr. Brooks“.Â Once again, I’ve been proven to miss lots and lots of nice movies that were released in the last two or three years.Â Gladly, I am catching up.
This film features some of those actors, who I know very well, appreciate, but will try to avoid.Â I don’t know why I am not a bigger fan of either Kevin Costner or Demi Moore.Â They are both very talented and all, but somehow I find myself trying to skip a movie if it has one of them in it.
Since I took a random movie of the shelf, I wasn’t checking the cast or the pictures at all.Â I have to say that I should do it more often, since I tend to end up with better movies than those that I pick after careful consideration.
Acting, story, and photography are the strong sides of this film.Â 7 out of 10 (or 7.5 if you like fractions)
