Saw the movie Gone Baby Gone the other night… Had a free rental at the video store; every once in awhile they call and give us one… but I hate standing there forever trying to choose a good movie! So we had Saw IV in hand, and my husband’s like, you know, we really haven’t liked the last 2 Saw’s all that much, compared to the first one. So I said yeah, and I saw Gone Baby Gone, and since I’d heard it was supposed to be good, we went with it. Besides, it got Oscar nominated, and I always like to be in on Oscar buzz… Not my kind of movie. Not that it was bad, but just a lot of dialogue and violence… not my kind of movie. It was entertaining, and I appreciated the twists and turns without seeing them coming, though I can’t say the same for Hubby. We like to give movies we watch our own imdb (interent movie database – cool site!) ratings, so I gave this one a 6.2. Hubby gave it a 4. 2. I appreciated the movie for what it was, and I can’t say much more without spoilers, so I won’t. The bottom line is, if you like violent crime dramas with intense dialogue, this movie is for you. I personally have trouble following movies where they talk about a bunch of characters and the audience is expected to keep them all straight, but that’s just me. A few plot inconsistencies, but my rating was kinda high because I did appreciate the complexity of the plot, even if it was a bit difficult for me to follow at times… so to quote one of my favorite movies, That’s all I have to say about that.

I thought this movie was entertaining but that the characters were poorly developed and the script was weak.
That about sums it up… I appreciated the twists and turns in the script though – I wouldn’t call it weak – just a lot of dialogue to follow which sometimes went over my head.
