The Monuments Men

The fact that this is a true story...of a platoon sent to Germany in World War II to recover art stolen by Hitler...makes it much more interesting.
All star cast includes: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, and Cate Blanchett.
The first half (or more) is very slow...and the story should have been much better.

Rated PG-13
1 hr. 52 min.

Labor Day

Kate Winslet gives a strong performance as a single woman who can barely face the world because of past heartaches. Along comes Josh Brolin...a man in serious trouble...who reminders her how it feels to love someone.
It's slow...Winslet may have been "over directed"...the storyline is tough to believe, but this film is much better than most critics will lead you to believe.

Rated PG-13
1 hr. 51 min.
