A couple nights ago Mike and I rented Out of the Furnace. I vaguely remember hearing about it, but didn’t remember the story line. It was actually really good!
Director: Scott Cooper
Stars: Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, and Woody Harrelson
Runtime: 1 hour, 56 minutes
Plot Summary: (from IMDb) Russell and his younger brother Rodney live in the economically-depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother becomes involved with one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast – a mistake that will cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother.
Rating: On Demand
This movie was really good… until the ending. I think they ruined the story with the end, but that’s just my humble opinion. I’m curious if anyone else felt that way. I think that Christian Bale is a really great actor – he was awesome in this role. Woody Harrelson was really good as well… I don’t normally see him as a bad guy, but he did well!
- Theater: This means the movie is awesome. Go see this movie in the theater – well worth the $100 you’ll spend for a night out to see it on the big screen!
- On Demand: Since no one actually rents movies anymore, this category has changed to On Demand. This means it’s a great movie, but it is as good at home as it is in the theater and worth seeing a little sooner.
- TV: This means the movie is ok. Wait for it to show up on HBO and see it for free.
- Skip It: Movie sucks, don’t waste your time.
