Michael Clayton Kept My Attention: 3 Stars

Michael Clayton is Network meets Erin Brockovich and The Pelican Brief.

No car chases, no crash scenes, ( car blew up) no sex scenes, they hardly cussed, but I found myself ingrossed in the characters and what would happen to them. I’m not one who tries to figure out where the movie is going. I just like to sit there and go with the flow.

The characters were complicated, yet had mundane parts to their lives. Debts to pay, bad habits to deal with, family issues, moral issues, etc.

I loved the fact that there were no credits before the film started. Just the title. The credits rolled at the end, like they should.

Three stars.

UPDATE: George Clooney is declared HOT

I really liked about the movie was GEORGE CLOONEY LOOKING HOT. I also liked GEORGE CLOONEY LOOKING HOT and delivering really good lines.

UPDATE: No 3:10 to Yuma, went to Tarzshay and took a nap outside (at home!)

Michael Clayton Kept My Attention: 3 Stars — 11 Comments

  1. I went with my wife and her friend. We had to watch ALL the credits because he was riding in the back of a cab. I knew that was the reason.

  2. Hey Mark,

    3 Stars, on a scale of 1 to 5 (right)? Are you a Big Movie Buff? I love a Good Movie, such as the one you mentioned Erin Brockovich. There’s a new one out I’m curious about, (We Own The Night) but I’m waiting til I hear somebody else give me their take on it.

  3. Hi Hope. I should have made it clear, thats three out of four. (I read USA Today and that’s their scale.)

  4. I think our next movie – today maybe – will be 3:10 to Yuma, I may have to go stag.

  5. I guess I’ll wait for the DVD. I’m getting quit a list built up if Winter ever comes. When the time changes and it’s dark at 5, and the reruns start, we do Netflix or Blockbuster.

  6. I won’t have to ask twice to see The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
