Movie Everybody Loves But I Don't
American Hustle (2013)
Director: David O. Russell
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 93%
I hated this movie. I do not understand what the big deal was and why everyone was so in love with it. I watched it because of the high praises, but I found the film dull. I cannot believe Jennifer Lawrence got a nomination for this; she was quite a miscast in the role. The whole ordeal was forgettable in general - none of the scenes stand out. Even the performances were a bit so-so. I feel like I've seen the movie before, and these movies presented the content in a better way.
Movie Everybody Hates (But I Don't)
Director: Jerusha Hess

Shannon Hale's Austenland made for a delightful read, giving her readers a fantasy on how it was to go on a Jane Austen-era like holiday. The movie exuded something close to that. Most of my enjoyment came from the performance of Keri Russell, who was quite charming as the protagonist. I think if it were a different actress the movie wouldn't be as fun as she made it to be. It does lack in certain factors (character dvelopment, etc) but I didn't only tune into this for that. It was really the Jane Austen like holiday that sold me on watching the movie, and in that case, it delivered its promise.
