    That's interesting. I didn't think the Polito role was great for Renner, so that's not surprising that it was added later. I thought Cooper could have done the Polito role much better than he did the role he wound up playing. I actually thought he was pretty good the first half of the movie, but when the character evolved to be a little more eccentric in the second half, it was too much for his talents. At least that's how I saw it. I've not been all that enamored with Bale's performances over the past several years so I went in with low expectations. I thought he was really good in this movie.

    Re: Official RedsZone Movie Thread (pt. III)

    I have watched several movies over the past coule weeks:

    Last night watched "Saving Mr. Banks". This movie made "Lincoln" look like "Fast & the Furious". Unspeakably boring and Emma Thompson was so unlikeable that it sort of ruined the movie for me. I found the motivations for her character to be unbelievable.

    Got to see a screening of "August: Osage County" the other day. I really enjoyed that one. It is very heavy, but is so well acted it makes up for some of short comings.

    "Dallas Buyers Club" was excellent I thought. I'm not a big MM fan but I thought he nailed the role. Jared Leto was amazing and should absolutely win the supporting actor Oscar. It fizzled a bit at the end, but was still a great movie.

    Saw Walter Mitty today and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. It was actually pretty good.

    Anchorman 2 was completely ridiculous and I loved it.

    I saw Nebraska Thursday, and it was an interesting family story, if a little too much of a downer. I did get one of my biggest laughs of the year at one point, though. Will Forte was shockingly competent, and Bruce Dern was incredible.

    I'm on the fence about Alexander Payne. I thought Sideways was way overrated, and adored The Descendents.

    I agree with everything you have typed except that I didn't find Nebraska to be "too much of a downer" but to be too slowly paced. Maybe they're the same thing, but I don't think so.

    I agree on Sideways and The Descendants, and I also find Election to be strangely overratedly underrated, if that makes sense. I'm afraid to watch About Schmidt because I've heard Kathy Baker has a nude scene...

    edit: but I do respect that he tries to bring every-day lives in the Midwest to life on the big screen

    American Hustle was good, but is being overrated, IMO. It just felt like the sort of movie I've seen several times before...

    I think my Best Picture nod (of what I've seen) would go to Dallas Buyers Club. Really great film, MM and Leto are both excellent.

    12 Years a Slave also deserves an Oscar nod as well as Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for Ejiofor and Fassbender. I would be okay with either of the two films/casts winning any combination of those awards.

    I'm typically fine with slowly paced movies. To me it was profoundly sad to see how isolated Bruce Dern's character was from his immediate family, to the point where they would talk about him like he wasn't even there. It was obvious that, although there was surely some dementia there, he still understood what they thought about him.

    Clarification: I really enjoyed the movie. But I don't see myself returning to it like I did The Descendents (several times).

    Saw American Hustle last night. I thought all the performances were fantastic. I thought the movie overall was very good.
