Burn after Watching: Why? Just...why?

Well, you asked for it! No, actually you didn't, but I am going to tell you anyway. Although many people would argue with me till the cows come home (which they better, and soon) I thought it was an overall kind of lame film. Not gonna lie, by the end (After an onslaught of 'WTF's and 'BBQ's ) I came to the conclusion that I didn't like the film.

I did like PARTS of the movie. In fact, I like PARTS of most every movie and if it's Titanic, I like the naughty PARTS. I always enjoy watching good actors perform and this movie is full of good actors most notably Brad Pitt and George Clooney in my opinion. The movie was actually very interesting and I liked it very much up until a certain point and then from there it came spiraling downward and crashed into a nearby farmers cornfield killing his daughter and her boyfriend who were having a 'picnic' out there. Sorry Mr. Jenkins. My your heathen daughter and that Farmer brat from down the street rest in peace. 

Where were we? Oh yes, Burn After Reading. In short, it was good up until the last twenty minutes. In my opinion, how you end a story is almost as important as how you start one. But, I'm no bigot. See for yourself. It's one of those 'like it or hate it' kind of movies.

though not the coan brother's best by any means, i still don't think it was that bad. a cut above most other movies out there nowadays, anyways. in the meantime, you should check out kathleen edwards. her concert was incredible and i simply cannot stop listening to her.

I think I was a lot more critical than I needed to be, but ripping a movie to shreds is better than ripping human children to shreds.
