Films I've seen recently

Bullets Over Broadway: I'm a fan of Woody Allen films and I enjoyed this one. Good performances and very entertaining. A Bright Star: I saw this HORRIBLE movie last saturday and I hated it from start to finish. Too bad that Jane Campion, the director and screenwriter of The Piano which was a brilliant film, was the person behind this disaster of a movie. Boogie Nights: Really liked this movie. It faded a bit in the 2nd half, but the screenplay was brilliant and the entire cast was exceptional, especially Julianne Moore. The Fabulous Baker Boys: Felt like a big cliche movie at times, but Pfeiffer's dynamic performance elevated the entire film. I need to watch Driving Miss Daisy again to decide between Pfeiffer and Jessica Tandy for my Best Actress pick though. Tel me your thoughts on these movies!

Is Bright Star really that bad? Abbie Cornish is getting some Oscar buzz.

I can't wait to hear your opinion on Jessica Tandy is Daisy! She'll be very high in my ranking ;D

Cornish wasn't bad, but not anything award worthy. The film just wasn't good, although I can see why some critics would like it. I'll have a review for Driving Miss Daisy soon.

Sad you didnt like Bright Star. I have not seen it yet, but I hope I like it.

I watched both Miss Daisey and Baker Boys when they came out, some 20 years ago now. I only remember Miss Dasiey, and it's a good story that will last. The other one I can't remember much about at all. So I vote for Jessica Tandy, who also gave a good performance where you can believe her character and forget that she's acting.
