He warns her that Jessup made the deed to the house part of his bond, and if he doesn't show up for his court date the family will be evicted. Ree has no choice but to find her father even though she knows it's dangerous to go looking.

    The movie won the Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic Film at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and was nominated for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Academy Awards. Lawrence was nominated for Best Actress, and John Hawkes, who plays Ree's sullenly ferocious uncle Teardrop, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor. And yes, it really is that good.

    9/10
    Excellent adaptation of an even better book. Lawrence was terrific.

    Yes, it really is that good.

    Definitely not a date movie, but I also thought it was excellent.

    The bimbo of the century [Tara Reid] in Sharkanado. This movie is so bad that it makes riveting viewing.

    2/10

    Didn't like it? I felt it was much better than the first.

    Midway 8/10

    What a blast of a movie. Whenever a couple of guys are talking about their feelings, then the dialogue can get clunky. But the action scenes were absolutely intense. Don't miss this one in the theaters if you can. You do not want to watch this on your phone sitting in the bathtub (which is apparently a thing.)

    The Mule, 5/10; A Clint Eastwood production which is why I watched it. Stars Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper and some other well known faces. This movie was disappointing, not one of Clint's best efforts. It's the tale of a very elderly horticulturist with family baggage who somehow gets recruited as a "mule" to transport drugs across the states for a Mexican cartel. There is nothing interesting in the movie and it lacks the usual wit for a Clint Eastwood movie. Some scenes seem contrived, hurried, poorly laid out and out of place.
