No Country For Old Men

Holy Cow, what a bad movie that was. We should have known better being that No Country For Old Men won Best Picture, but still, we gave it a shot because of the long list of stars in the movie. Suzanne has been saying that “her 10 year kid could have written a better ending than that”.

It was kind of a shame too, because the movie had its moments and had a decent plot. You had a drug deal gone bad with a local country bumpkin finding the money. Of course, the bad guys wanted the money back. It just kept deviating from that main thread and wasting time in areas that added absolutely nothing to the movie. I still don’t understand why Tommy Lee Jones was in the movie and what it added.

All of the melodramatic (and yet sort of monotone) acting was over the top for me too. Suzanne and Sean also did not enjoy the movie. For comparison, a third or fourth run through of Mission Impossible III earlier in the weekend was much more enjoyable.

Take my advice and pass on the movie No Country For Old Men. There are lots better movies out there to watch. Just another reminder to avoid most of the big award winners from the Oscars.
