Old Joy - 7/10

This movie was very hard to rate. The 7 really doesn't mean a lot at this point. Like Meek's Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy, this movie is very slow. There is a fine line when it comes to slow movies, and unfortunately at times, Old Joy crosses that line into bland territorry. It's really strange, but I have enjoyed the movie a lot more after it's been done than when I was actually watching it. Individually, the scenes are boring, but the film really comes together once it is finished. Without a doubt, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The final scene was also extremely powerful. Reichardt showed the same skill making this that she always does. The scenery is beautiful yet not glamourous. Like with all her movies, everything in the film serves to draw attention to the story, not distract from it.

The Bourne Legacy - 3/10

I liked the original trilogy but this movie just seemed pointless. It didn't make a lot of sense, the chase sequence was far too long and it randomly ended without feeling finished.
