The Monuments Men (George Clooney)
Starring: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Hugh Bonneville, Bob Balaban
My thoughts on this film: I was expecting The Monuments Men to be much more entertaining than it is. There are seemingly continuous laughs coming from quick one liners and witty character interactions, which keeps the audience somewhat engaged; however, it seems like the first act eats up almost all of the movie. Secondly, this is more about the actors than the characters. If you are there to watch Bill Murray, John Goodman, Matt Damon, George Clooney, or even Jean Dujardin (who happens to be in every film made this year) then you are in for a treat, otherwise, it is not worth it (or maybe the bar was raised too high due to all the publicity).
It is not the worst movie made, but it is the most disappointing film of 2014 as of yet.
