The Office Cast Says Farewell.
I think a Michael Scott quote sums this one up…
I lost The Office and it feels like somebody took my heart and dropped it into a bucket of boiling tears. And, at the same time, somebody else is hitting my soul in the crotch with a frozen sledgehammer. And then a third guy walks in and starts punching me in the grief bone. And I am crying, and nobody can hear me because I am terribly, terribly, terribly alone.

CAN YOU EVEN STAND IT
I see Iron Man movies because I love watching Robert Downey Jr. play Tony Stark. His delievery, timing, cadence, and expressions are a joy to watch. Iron Man 3 was an above average third installment with great pacing, good performances, and thrilling action. But let’s be honest, I have trouble thoroughly enjoying super hero movies since Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
Breaking down our traditional ideas about a protagonist, writer/director Derek Cianfrance follows 4 or 5 characters with the same amount of attention. A story about how injustice works itself out in cycles, often from fathers to sons, The Place Beyond the Pines is heart wrenching and gritty much like Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine. Cianfrance brings a realism to film in the way that Ibsen brought it to theatre a century ago. The performances are raw and honest, making this story of corruption and consequence totally believable. A must see this year.
